Nollywood actress,Tonto Dikeh, took to her Instagram to speak against violence of women in marriage.
The heartfelt post is a reaction to the viral news of a man that beat his wife badly and stabbed her privates after he caught her cheating.
In the post, which features a screen grab of the victim’s Facebook outcry, Tonto, who is married to Oladunni Churchill, and blessed with a son, Omodayo, wrote, “Where is it in the Bible that says it’s OK to beat up your spouse? How long do we keep forgiving and living a lie all in the name of our children?”
The same children if not removed from an abusive environment will grow up to be the abuser themselves. Society please be kind to women, give us the respect, care and protection we deserve.
“Men, would you love to see your mothers or sisters… treated this way?
“Listen, it absolutely doesn’t matter what a woman does to you, you have various options to walk away. Not pose like a boxer in a ring with Mayweather.
“A man who truly loves his wife won’t dare lay a finger on her. There are so many ways to resolve marital conflicts and violence does no good,” she concludes.
