Nollywood actress cum movie producer, Nazo Ekezie has commented on the rising rate of domestic violence cases in Nigeria, especially women stabbing their cheating husband.
She wrote on IG:
“The only reason a woman would stab a man that is her boyfriend or husband is because she doesn’t like herself again. Which is understandable; the process of this whole marriage thing and marriage thing could make you lose yourself.
“I think sometimes you even forget that you should always put yourself before any other thing. It is also important for women who are into relationship or marriages to have friends or family members that they can always put a call to the husband or partner when he starts losing himself. It’s crazy, how you forget yourself and then do the unthinkable by ending your life because you are trying to correct a cheating man.
“You have told this man to stop cheating, you have asked him, you have begged him, yet he wouldn’t listen. You have said it to him so many times, is he your child? Why do you want to lose your life because you want to correct a man?If he hasn’t changed, he doesn’t want to change, Let him go.
“Leave that relationship or marriage before it ruins you. You mustn’t have to stab him. If you do, it must be because you have lost hope in yourself. You have come to believe that outside that relationship, you are nothing,” she said.
She added, “I think we should love ourselves so much and put our happiness and wellbeing first before any other thing. Love yourself, pamper yourself. Anything that would mess with your head, let it go, forget about it. ”
