"A doctor's apponitment was an everyday medication" 24-yr-old Nigerian lady shares her domestic violence story

A Nigerian Instagram user Mizez_dantata (@damisa_edwards), today, shared her experience with domestic violence, in hopes that it would encourage other people who are suffering from it to speak up and walk out before it's too late. She suffered abuse from her aunt. She wrote;
"Two years ago I would get to work with tears in my eyes, pain in my heart and body, marks on my face and body. A doctor's appointment was an everyday medication. The doctors insisted I get my husband arrested (I wasn't even married). I wanted to leave, but I had nowhere to go. Was I going to live on the 3rd mainland bridge? So I endured all the pains of domestic violence from my aunt till I got punched in the eye which resulted to internal eye bleeding and a knife was pulled out to take my life away...

 'God was my strength' I had gone through this for five good years, I was 22 and couldn't get home a lil bit after 7pm without a slap to say me welcome, i couldn't even go on official trips without her fists coming out to play, I couldn't even have friends over I was still being beaten like a slave and a 2yr Old Child! I moved out with Nuin in my pocket, just my bestfriend and sister @teema_diva (little wonder why I love u so much) by my side and prayers. Hey I ain't dead but alive, might have been but I took a chance and a leap of faith, say NO TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, it's better late than never. I still have my scars but they only remind to be stronger whenever I feel like giving up. I CAN SPEAK BECAUSE I AINT DEAD. SEEK HELP IF YOU MUST, STOP SUFFERING IN SILENCE."

Happy survival darling, and bless you for speaking out against domestic violence. Domestic violence isn't a show of masculinity, it's cowardice, all shades of insecurity and evil! Say no to #domesticViolence

From very young age we teach these girls about finding a good man n little about getting a good job. In the end they're too dependent on another freaking HUMAN. Empower your children equally people.

Thank you! Well said... I have two daughters n am not going to teach them to be slave to men but to be independent! Our community see mundane things as standard! Sad

Can't u people read and understand properly before u comment, the domestic violence she endured was from her AUNT and not a MAN,why is English so hard for some of u to understand.

People don't read to understand, abi what is happening here? All the comments are about domestic violence carried out by a man, but the victim is very clear here she said she was not even married, her aunt was the aggressor, not a man!!
