Sola Sobowale Advises Women In Abusive Relationships, “Run For Your Life” (Video)

The campaign against Domestic Violence which was organised by the wife of the Ooni of Ife, Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi might have been concluded in Lagos but some participants have chosen to make imprints in the minds of women who are in abusive relationships.

Titled, “Stop The Domestic Violence Against Women,” the peaceful walk which had hundreds of women in attendance became a rallying point for women who had been violated and needed to speak out.

When asked by journalists what her advice was for women whose husband have turned them to punching bags or who had been attacked verbally, seasoned actress, Sola Sobowale advised:

“Open that door and run! Be the typical African woman and shout, Egba mi oo. Don’t cover it up! The bottom-line is don’t die in silence. Run for your life. Run! You need your face, your leg and don’t let it be destroyed. Run!”

The actress, who is married with grown up children, relocated to the United Kingdom due to her kids’ education but returned to Nigeria to resume her acting career after her children’s graduation. She has featured in some movies among which is “The Wedding Party.”
