Amara, the ex-girlfriend of Uyaiedu, sister of Nse Ikpe-Etim, the Nollywood actress, has reacted to allegations of domestic violence against her.
Uyaiedu had earlier recounted how she endured an abusive relationship with the queer rights activist.
The film director had alleged that Amara became violent in the course of their relationship and slapped her on one occasion.
In a Twitter thread, the LGBTQIA+ activist, better known as Amara the lesbian, confirmed that the pair indeed endured an abusive relationship in their first two years together.
Amara, however, said she did not stab Uyaiedu as rumoured in some quarters.
She went to apologise over the effect of her action on the queer community and asked for forgiveness from her aggrieved colleagues.
“I’m sorry about how all of this is affecting the queer community that has loved and supported me since I got on this space. I’m really sorry. I’m so sorry,” she wrote.
I’m sorry about how all of this is affecting the queer community that has loved and supported me since I got on this space. I’m really sorry. I’m so sorry.
Ineed everyone who still has any hope for me and my existence to know this, I’m doing better than I did in my past, today.

“I need everyone who still has any hope for me and my existence to know this, I’m doing better than I did in my past, today.
“One day, like I already do. I’d share with you about my not so impressive past, again. This time with more details. I did not stab my girlfriend.
“However, we were in an abusive space the first two years of our relationship and we would occasionally have heated arguments and fights that would burn us both and one time we almost burned down our entire house with the heat.
“God saved us both and we have been together for years after that and we’ve gotten better and healed for ourselves and each other. I have a video on my channel that vaguely talks about this period of our lives.”
