"The veil has fallen off" - Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi takes a stand against Domestic Violence

Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi, wife of the Ooni of Ife, has taken a public stand against domestic violence. According to her;
"Domestic abuse/emotional abuse are fast becoming a norm in our society. Decades ago it was okay for women to bear the burden and remain mute about the pains and effects of being victims. Not today.
The veil has fallen off and the shame of what the world will think has been replaced with solidarity, empathy, and unity. Together we can all lend a helping hand and support our sisters, mothers, aunts, friends in saying No to domestic violence and abuse. By remaining silent, we are doing a great disservice to victims and their families. #Saynotodomesticviolence #NoMore #SilenceisDeadly"

On this road to civilizing the nation, ridding it of toxic violence and backwards attitudes towards the sanctity of human life, all moral Nigerians, with good virtues and good conscience, must keep up the fight against violence, oppression and discrimination targeted towards the most vulnerable in our society.

The Yoruba people must remember virtues of openness and brotherly love, and be an example of inclusivity, and not followers of fascism, intolerance and tribalism.

We should all be good Samaritans, it doesn't matter what race, age, ethnicity, sexuality or gender an individual is, like Her Empiral Majesty Olori Wura has cited, in regards to women, let this edict translate to all our peoples, be they women or men, children or the elderly, gay or straight, rich or poor, Muslim or Christian, above all else, we are human.

These acts of violence are not new, but in the information age, what was once hidden, is brought to light. We can not act oblivious any longer to the real issues plaguing our nation. Let us be leaders by example, and not slaves to ignorance.

I stand to say no to domestic violence. Once upon a time, there was a man that use to abuse and maltreats his wife, one day the wife went to see a prophet, after narrating her story to the prophet, the prophet now gave her a bottle of liquid substance and tell her when ever there is an issue between you and your husband drink this substance but do not swallow it, let it be in your mouth until the matter is over. She takes the advice and instructions seriously that her husband begin to notice that there's change in attitude and approach when ever they have issues, he begin to imagine what have caused the change. He also starts to love the wife and the abuse and maltreating stopped. The woman now went back to the prophet to thank him for his help on how he bring back peace to her home. The prophet now said to her the liquid substance I gave you is ordinary water and little salt. That means 90% of the abuse you receive from your husband is caused by you, if only you can control your emotions and nagging attitude this abuse will stop completely. "The book of proverbs 31 talks about a Virtuous wife"

What baffles me is that the women in the national assembly are silent over this. Can't they propose a bill that protects women against domestic violence?

Long live LIB

Rubbish story! So the man couldn't take a walk but beat up his wife each time she dares to speak her mind during an argument? He doesn't have heated arguments with males his size or even bigger, why doesn't he try hitting them! Rubbish

Long live LIB

You're a sexist and you don't even know it. The man who cannot control his anger, is the one with the problem.

Stop blaming the victim.

Pls could anyone that knows Sonia itohan very well should tell her to shut up her mouth and do not intervene in any issue concerning domestic violence because she is the most violence person i have ever seen in my life. She is only been careful because she married a yoruba king. for people that knows when she was with the jigawa state governor, and also with her married husband BABA LEBANESE, WHEN EVER HE WANTS TO FIGHTS HIM OR have arguments with him, she slaps ellie many times, abuses his mum many times, and also break so many things in his house, so for her to come out and pretend that she is homely, innocent,and supporting issues against domestic violence is totally unacceptable, because she is on the top list for violence, aggression, with many abusive words from her mouth. So she needs to shut up and continue cooking jollof rice for the king at home.Bloody pretender

Please can anyone who know Sonia Itohan Covered up with wuraola tell her pls not to get involve in fight against domestic violence, because she is on top of the list of violent woman that i have ever come across in my life. It is all because Oni of ife is rich, and has power to do all sorts, that is why you see her pretending to be nice and quite. However, when she was with jigawa state governor, and also with BABA LEBANESE Ellie kouri, She slapped him many times, insult and bully Ellie's mum many times, and also break so many electronics at home when there is any little arguments between them. So for her to now get involve in the support of being against domestic violence is totally out of it. Bloody pretender she is.
