Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie who was criticized on social media over his statement few weeks back about what he felt concerning domestic violence, has come out to clarify his statement.
In a recent interview with the Punch, he explained his statement, and said:
“I did not witness my father beating up my mother, so why would I support domestic violence? I believe that it is wrong in all ramifications. But on the other hand, there are always two sides to a coin, and in science, there is something called cause and effect. We shouldn’t just focus on the effect while totally ignoring the cause. With my post on social media, I was just trying to implore women to treat their husbands with respect. Even if you are not married, it is important to respect every person you come in contact with,” he said.
Speaking further, he said, “What I have said does not absolve the men of blame. As a man, you should be mature and strong enough to keep calm in the face of provocation. Violence is never the answer.”
