Lola Akande, the Lagos State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation (WAPA), is blaming the actions of some women as a cause for the alarming cases of domestic violence occurring in Lagos state and Nigeria as a whole.
Akande stated so while at a programme on Management of Domestic Violence, organised by the ministry in Lagos today.

“It is no longer news that many women have lost their lives through domestic violence. The more we try to put the blame on the men folk, the more we will continue to turn blind eyes to the fact that many women are the cause of the domestic violence we see today,” Akande pointed out.
The commissioner continued on the matter, “This is because we fail to understand some important aspects of how most men are wired. Some women also cause violence by using abusive words and misguided utterances that can provoke the men. But let me also state that a man who beats a woman is a beast, and does not deserve to live with humans. No matter how provoked you may be as a man, please, never raise your hand to beat your wife.”
Ladies, guys, please what do you have to say about Lola Akande’s speech on domestic violence?
