Nollywood actress Empress Njamah has given her insight on domestic violence. In an interview with Broadway TV, she explained that even men are victims and women may break a man down mentally.
"In her words: I will say this. We are talking about domestic violence and this is very serious. A man hits a woman, it’s domestic violence. A woman hits a man and what is it called? No seriously, I love the topic. It’s all about the women but do you know that there are men more beaten up mentally than the women who they beat physically.
I’m not saying it is advisable but the truth of the matter is sometimes, women are head strong and they can traumatize their partner mentally and if could make their partner run man and they don’t know when they hit. A lot of things happen in marriages, it’s not a bed of roses. I’m not saying it’s good but sometimes you need to work together to help the man. If the man is naturally a woman beater, you can help the man out of it. He must have experienced a lot of things growing up and inculcates it.
Sometimes, let’s not just put it on the man alone. If a woman hits a man, what is it called? That’s why overseas, sometimes a woman hits a man but they can’t do anything because they don’t want to go to jail. The next things the man kills himself. What is it called when a woman hits a man? Why don’t people see it? Are they not humans?
Don’t beat a woman but women help the men. Help them control their anger and do things. If your husband tells you he feels something you do is wrong and you are head strong. Sometimes, their single friends could also advise them wrongly. Sometimes women need to read books r Google how to keep a man and make him happy. Marriage is a different ballgame.

Basically, when you are talking about violence, it’s a two way thing. Men or women can commit it. Work together. It’s not a biggie. The woman could either push the man or the man is head strong and stubborn. It could be anything. That’s why you are married, help the man control it. If the woman is that kind of person too, stop it. That’s why most men get a second wife, because they don’t want to beat the woman or get a divorce. The second wife will now pet the man. Men are babies, they just want to be treated as babies."
