Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa has revealed in her new book that her ex-husband, Maje Ayida, infected her with a sexually transmitted infection, STI, while they were married.
Makinwa, who recently unveiled her newest work ‘On Becoming’ stated that her estranged husband had infected her with the disease after he returned from a trip.
“He had given me an STI in the past. He’d returned from a trip once and we had sex, and a few days later I was itching.
“I went to the doctors and they prescribed medication, but when I asked Maje about the infection he denied knowing anything about it.
“I went through his phone and saw a conversation with Anita where she complained that she had been itching.
“This wasn’t news to Maje, more like an update that she was giving him on a situation that he already knew about.
“He asked her what the doctor’s report said and what was prescribed.
“I knew I would be putting myself at risk if I closed my eyes to whatever he chose to do on the side. So I went back to putting all my attention into my work”, she wrote.
