As most women face the devastating effects of domestic violence across the country, some Nigerian celebrities have taken to their social media platform to speak out against the atrocity.
Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo popularly called D’banj on his twitter handle @iamdbanj advised victims not to be in denial or be deceived by such men that hitting them was normal.
“ Don’t be deceived. Anyone who is telling you ‘men hit, its normal’ is either in denial or guilty. NO Excuse LEAVE!!!!!! God help us all.
“ Love hath no Violence…If he hits you, he is not a man. He is a Beast. RUN! Stay safe!
“ Give yourselves all the nomenclature you want. Wrong is wrong. When the head is cut off, the ears go with it. Be Wise. God Bless. I’m D’Banj,’’ he said.
Peter Okoye of Psquare was not left out of the reaction against violence women.
He challenged any man that has the intention to beat a woman to start with him (Peter).
He took to his twitter handle @peterPsquare to buttressed his point, “ But seriously some MEN can fall hand. Next time if u want to beat or hit a Woman. Pls try me…’’
However, his twin brother, Paul said that men also suffered violence adding that it was better for a partner to leave than stay in a violence relationship.
He reacted on his social media handle @rudeboypsquare,“I know many men that are going through domestic violence….not only women…so guys!! Move on to the next one..Men don’t run, we move.’’
NAN reports that the condemnation comes after series of media reports about violence against women involving celebrities like Mercy Aigbe and Tonto Dikeh.
