DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIM FIGHTS BACK

Pictures of the battered and bloodied face of pretty Florence Sabo Campbell were posted by her on her Facebook wall to accompany her shocking birthday message to her abuser, husband James A Campbell.

The revealing message reads “Happy birthday my husband and would be ex-husband James Alphonso Campbell the most wicked and voilent man I have ever known in my life.May this day be the beginning of the time you will pay for all your crimes. May God never allow you to skip judgment and may your wickedness be serve as a birthday cake as you celebrate for the rest of your life.As you turtured me day and night when I was in your house may the laws of this country catch up with you one day . I survived your cruelty towards me because God was on my side but now is the time for the whole world to know the marriage I was in and why I used my hard earn money to file for divorce. See you soon in court”

 

Florence, from Freetown Sierra Leone who had  suffered long term violence and physical abuse at the hands of her husband later posted another message to thank people who had been showing their support and encouragement and also to explain her decision to put her story on social media.
She said “I am very proud of myself to know that I finally opened up because I have been silent for too long. I didn’t speak out for peace making or sympathy sake but rather to reassure women who are still going through torture and inhuman treatment to stand for their rights. I was lucky to have survived it but the question is will others be lucky as I was? It is true this is my personal life but i want to use my story to stop domestic violence in Sierra Leone and it neighbouring countries if I have to. I am not ashame of those pictures and i will never be because my silence will endanger other women’s life including my daughters instead of saving their life’s. Do u know how many women out there whose life could change because i told my story from it natural face and careless about what people with shallow mind will say about me. My story will go down to history shelves and be told to My children’s children because i have the heart to say no to Domestic violence. I have chosen to be on this part of life because i am a survivor…..so help me God.
# And for the records I will appreciate if people could separate my corporate life from my personal life don’t confuse the two”.
Commenting  on her  divorce case, she added “Friends, family, sympathisers and Co – victims. I thank you and appreciate all your support you’ve given to me but you have to remember me in your prayers as the real battle starts from today because divorce proceedings will start in high court and that means I shall no longer discuss the matter in question here. But you can send me messages and i promise to respond to all of them. In God i put my trust”
