Chantal Graziola's boyfriend Nicola Traidi was arraigned in court yesterday. Traldi had allegedly assaulted Chantal a few days back and the story was brought to the fore by her ex, Eric Omondi.
Now, he had deactivated his social media account which had over 13,000 followers.
The comedian took to his social media to blast the Malindi-based businessman.
Eric posted a video of Chantal limping as she left the house to seek treatment.
Following the allegations, Traldi defended himself claiming he is being framed.
He denied that he would never beat a woman.
“I have been framed for something I would never do, unspeakable. It’s a sad day. I would never lay my hands on a lady, I am a father of 2 daughters,” he said.
“Everyone who knows me knows I am incapable of such a thing. My mum taught me well. The truth shall come out.”
Chantal took to her social media to describe the assault details.
"While he was assaulting me, he threatened me that he would come back and do it again and there was nothing I would do because he knows the big people.
This puts my life in danger since I have no idea what he will do next. If he claims that he is being framed why can he not present himself at the police station, he is not reachable either.
It is traumatizing and not easy for me physically and emotionally, and neither is it not easy for any form of GBV victims irrespective of who is involved and especially those who cannot come out and speak about it. The majority are helplessly dying in silence. It is very very sad GBV is not taken seriously in this country."
Nicola was arraigned in court and was charged with causing grievous bodily harm to his girlfriend Chantal.
Nicola pleaded not guilty before the Kiambu Law Courts Principal Magistrate Grace Omodho and was freed on a cash bail of Ksh.100,000.
