The death of Ronke Shonde, allegedly beaten to death by her husband seems to have opened the eyes of many women who have been bearing domestic violence in silence.
The death of Lagos-based banker, Ronke Shonde, who was allegedly beaten to death by her husband, Lekan, over allegations of infidelity, may have opened the eyes of women and they are no more dying in silence.
Sequel to the call made by the wife of the state Governor, Bolanle Ambode, for women to come out of the closet and tell of their experiences, another woman has decided to come out and narrate how her pastor husband has been brutalising her for years.
Her plight was made known by a Twitter user, Akinsanya Olabode, who tweeted at reknown women rights activist, Dr. Joe Okhei-Odumakin, asking her to come to the aid of the battered woman.
This is what Olabode wrote:
"Please dis woman is constantly been abused my a man that calls himself a Pastor. Please how can u help?"
