Chidi was my first boyfriend and love of my life. I was living with my Auntie in Ikota, helping in her restaurant when I met Chidi. Chidi was working as an apprentice in a spare parts shop. Life was hard for us cos I could not further my education hence I came to Lagos to serve as house help and sales girl for my Aunty while Chidi left his village to learn a trade.
Chidi was my only source of happiness during those difficult years and he and I were planning to get married in future. Then things changed. I got involved in a woman who promised me a job in Europe for greener pastures. Chidi and I thought it would be good for us, as I would go abroad to work and send money back, for him to safe and we can start a future when I return.
When I got to Europe, I discovered it was pr0stitut!0n I was brought to come and do. I cried and almost wanted to die but I remembered my poor family and Chidi back home and I became determined to succeed. I worked my back off for 3 years before I could even begin to send money home. I sent money to Chidi and his family, to my family as well. I sent money to Chidi to buy a car, rent an apartment, etc.
I was finally able to travel home after five years of hustling abroad. I got home and met a different Chidi. He had used all the money I sent to him to start his business, he saved very little as I told him but he had the car and apartment, so I did not mind too much. But I noticed he was hiding his calls until I suspected he was keeping another girl and hiding her from me.
