Authorities in Lagos have reacted to a video of a woman who was allegedly battered by her husband, resulting into swollen eyes and bleeding nose.
A Twitter user with the moniker @sama_on_point posted the video on social media, and disclosed that the incident happened in the Ogba area of Lagos..
He 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 neighbours. She lives with her husband at 3 Mafo Close, Yaya Abatan off Abeokuta Street, Ogba, Lagos. Rescue this lady please!”
In the video online, 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.
