Veteran Nigerian actress, Georgina Onuoha, has reacted to a trending video of a husband beating his wife mercilessly.
Writing on her social media page, she said;
“And this is supposed to be a “ Husband “? If this woman snaps and defends herself tomorrow by taking his life for self defense, our society will brand her a murderer, isn’t it?”
“My dear Ginafam; Marriage is not an achievement. Know this and remain alive. Marriage is a sacred Union built on love, respect, compassion and forgiveness.”
“If anyone have to subject you to this, my sister my brother please run for your dear life.” ”There’s nothing pious and righteous about enduring life threatening violence till death. The Bible never says “Blessed are those who are killed by their husbands or wives, for theirs is the kingdom” nope, it rather says “Blessed are you when men persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you on my account, rejoice and be glad for your reward will be great in heaven” Mtt 5:11-12.”
