“There is no excuse under the face of the earth that God has created, for a man to lay a hand on his woman”- Tonto Dikeh

Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, who was one of the celebrities who marched against domestic violence alongside the Ooni of Ife’s wife, had something to say about domestic violence when interviewed by GoldmyneTV while on the march.

According to Tonto Dikeh whose marriage to her ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill on grounds of domestic violence amidst other allegations, said there is no excuse under the face of the earth that God has created, for a man to lay his hand on his woman.

The actress and mother of one said;

“I think the one issue that actually births the high rate of domestic violence is the fact that we are not talking about it enough. It is the fact that the society is shaming us when we talk about it. So we rather not talk about it, we rather keep it on a hush hush until it is worse.

This awareness will create so many…I am sure a lot of men now will be scared to beat their wives now because this awareness is no joke, there are heavyweights here. It is not about ridiculing men like I always say. It is to make us a better person. It is to make our homes better.,

Nobody is saying run out of your homes. I am not preaching divorce. I am preaching that you speak out. because your life matters. Your children’s lives matter and your husband’s life matters.,
