Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe who survived a terrible domestic violence attack last year has mourned Lagos-based singer Alizee who was killed by her Danish husband in Ikoyi last week.
The circumstances behind Alizee’s death reached close to home for Aigbe who had her own share of domestic violence in the hand of her estranged husband Olanrewaju Gentry.
Here is Mercy Aigbe’s response to Alizee’s tragic death and women enduring abusive relationships.
“It’s a Shame how people allow the society to dictate for them!!!! It is your life! And trust me your life matters!….. Pls flee from an abusive relationship/marriage, no one has the right to physically abuse their partner regardless!!!!!…. Talkless of taking another person’s life.
I am so pained with this story I saw online, Jesus!!!! Why will someone take the life of his wife and beautiful innocent child! Why? Pls if are reading this and you are in an abusive relationship/marriage pls run for your dear life before it’s too late! Let people say whatever they want to say, na dem get their mouth!!!!
Stop saying where will I start from? Stop saying I am staying because of the kids!!!…Stop making excuses, before it’s too late!!!!!…. Trust me you are stronger than you think and you are more useful to your children alive than be dead or disabled.”
