She said she was terrified of her ex-husband.

Etinosa said, “It (the demostic violence) got to a point where I was on drugs. Whenever he (my ex-husband) is coming home, normally as a woman you should be happy that your husband is coming home but I would just starched up and doped up so that no matter what he says, no matter what he’s doing, I’m just looking at him. Just so that there would be peace.”
