On domestic violence

“The domestic violence is real. How I lived to suffer it and go through it over and over again, I do not understand. A lot of people have blamed me. A lot of people have said a lot of things. I stayed back in my marriage, not because of my child, but because I loved my husband with all of my heart. I stayed because he begged me to stay a couple of times. I stayed because I just didn’t want to give up. I didn’t want to give up on the marriage just like that.”


Tonto who shared photos of her bruises from being physically abused, disclosed..

“I also have pictures in Ghana. The Nigerian embassy in Ghana has pictures of me. I had to run to them at some point. The reason I can’t release those pictures is because I was stark naked. My husband has humiliated me so much and for anybody to tell me I am lying against my husband, that even hurts me more”
