Husband Batters Nursing Mother, Leaving Her With A Swollen Eye
A Twitter user with the handle @sama_on_point has claimed that a nursing mother was allegedly battered by her husband at their home in the Ogba area of Lagos state today July 6.
The Twitter user who posted a video to back up his claim gave the name of the nursing mother’s Mrs. Ngozi and her husband, Mr. Henry.
”This is Mrs. Ngozi after she was battered by her husband, Mr. Henry today. This is a recurring battering as reported by neighbors. She lives with her husband at 3 Mafo Close, Yaya Abatan off Abeokuta Street, Ogba, Lagos. Rescue this lady please!”In the video, a female neighbor could be heard asking the woman to pack her things and leave the house as being married isn’t by force.
The Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team DSVRT and the National Human Rights Commission NHRC have both reacted to the video.
