Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda Coker has disclosed in an interview, that half of domestic violence cases are caused by women.
The pretty actress said this in an interview with Okey Bakassi on Channels TV’s The Other News, she added that Nigerian women should desist from provoking their men into punches and slaps.
“It’s a bit uncomfortable for someone to come out and say I was cornered to sleep with a producer because of a role,”
“They keep quiet about it because of their careers. Apart from that, the society stigmatises these women. So you just swallow your pride. When you are outside the shores of Africa, women are heroes for coming out to speak about sexual abuse, but not here.” she added.
Speaking further, Chinda also urged women to quit “provoking” their husband.
“As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men, women should quit provoking their man by beating punches and slaps,” she said.
“I’m a domestic violence [enthusiast]. I always research when I hear fresh stories about domestic violence. Half the time, it is the women.
“God just gave us this running Okra mouth. Women, don’t fight with people who are stronger than you.”
