Mercy Aigbe, Tonto Dikeh: Actresses Lead Walk Against Domestic Violence
Popular Nigerian Actresses Tonto Dikeh, Mercy Aigbe and Queen Wuraola, the wife of the Ooni of Ife, recently led a campaign against domestic violence.
The group kicked off their walk at 10 am under the Falomo Bridge by Awolowo Road, Lagos. This comes after Mercy Aigbe took to Instagram writing, “Battery and Assault is a CRIME! #saynodomesticviolence #saynotoassault
Join us in the #1in3Africa campaign, a campaign against violence! We are walking the streets of lagos to show our displeasure at this menace that is eating deep into our system……. Join us tomorrow by 10am, Start off point is Falomo Bridge by Awolowo Road……
Conflicts should be settled amicably and not through violence, only weak men hit women.”
The three in conjunction with the 1in3 Africa campaign are walking the streets of Lagos today, June 30, 2017, to show their displeasure at the high rate of domestic violence cases. Recall that Mercy Aigbe and Tonto Dikeh are both victims of domestic violence and have taken the DV awareness to heart.
