Actress/producer Omoni Oboli has lamented the spate of domestic violence in marriages.
The Nollywood star said there’s no excuse for spouses to turn each into punching bags.
She advised couples with a short fuse to embrace the act of walking away when tempers start to rise.
“There’s no reason to hit a spouse or a partner. There’s no scenario where it’s excusable. If your spouse is upsetting you at any point and you feel you can’t take it, walk away,” she wrote on Instagram, after thanking her husband for loving her despite her imperfections.
Her counsel comes in the wake of some high-profile marriage crashes over allegations of domestic abuse and bodily harm.
Most notably, Tonto Dikeh has accused her husband Olakunle Churchill of inflicting physical harm on her.
Patoranking’s label-boss, Foston Utomi, is presently trending on social media after his wife, Ajoke, Tuesday night, made claims of physical violence against him.
Like Dikeh, she shared visuals to back her allegations.
Ese Eriata, an evicted housemate of Big Brother Naija, has said that the day a man “raises a hand” on her – one of two things will happen.
“Either you kill me or I will kill you,” she said.
But Oboli advised that a violent relationship could lead to “someone’s death” and urged victims of domestic abuse to speak up.
“A spouse is not a punching bag! This applies to both men and women…because I heard some women are Mike Tyson wannabes. This thing is getting out of hand! Abeg, your spouse did not cause the recession. Don’t transfer aggression,” she wrote.
“It’s also not ok to have a violent relationship so you can have great makeup sex! One day, That play will lead to someone’s death. Please, I’m begging you, if you are guilty of this, cease. Stop it now!
“While, I’m not an advocate for divorce, Pls speak up if you are a victim. Don’t keep quiet to your grave.”
