A Nigerian woman has been left with swollen eyes after her husband allegedly beat her to pulp for starting a business.
Humanitarian, Dr Yolanda George-David shared the heartbreaking story online. According to her, the woman’s husband starts maltreating her and their children whenever she tries to start a business.
In the recent incident, he allegedly locked up her wares in the toilet and when she demanded for the release of the goods, he allegedly beat her up. According to the report, while he was beating her, their dog bit her leg.
Well-meaning neighbors rushed her to the hospital and the swollen eyes is reportedly the side effect of the drugs she was given.

It is frustrating that some of the victims of domestic violence…tend to run back to their abusers…without making sure they have gotten help…. but these women are not just statistics … they are people’s daughters… mothers… sisters…”
