Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda Coker has said based on her research, in half the cases of domestic violence, women are to blame.
She said this while speaking on Okey Bakassi‘s “The Other News”– a satirical news show – on Channels TV.
The host, Okey Bakassi quoted a speech by the Lagos State Commissioner of Women Affairs Lola Akande which says “Negligence, infidelity, sophistication, misguided utterances, verbal insults, and gullibility on the part of women drive domestic violence.”
He asked the actress what she thought about the quote and she said she agreed with it. She said:
As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men […] women should quit provoking their men into punches and slaps and all kinds of things.
She continued, saying as someone who follows stories of domestic violence, she always researches into it, and has found that women are to blame for half the cases.
