We know of how Mercy Aigbe was tortured in her home, here’s her advice to women that find themselves in such situation or what to do when faced with oppression in their homes.
Mercy who was a victim of domestic abuse and has a case in court with her husband Lanre Gentry who allegedly battered her shared photos of another woman abused by husband, on Instagram, asked women not to hesitate to runaway from such union.
She wrote, “If you feel your partner provokes you to the extent of bringing out that animal in you please do yourself a favour by walking out of that marriage”.
“According to Human Rights Activist lawyer Emeka Uguwonye.
“This woman was battered by her husband! How long are we going to condone this inhumane act? Some very shallow and evil minded fellows will say she must have done something to provoke the man! For Christ Sake, if you are provoked can’t you control yourself? Instead of killing your partner or rendering the person disabled! We should learn to control our anger as violence doesn’t solve anything. If you know you have anger management problems, pls get professional help! Battery and Assault is a crime punishable under the law!”
