Feb 20, 2015 – Project RAW, Respect A Woman: Nollywood Stars Join Emmanuel Ikubese For Anti Domestic Abuse Campaign
Nollywood has joined ex-Mr Nigeria winner Emmanuel Ikubese to encourage women in abusive relationship to quit.
Mr Ikubese just set up a campaign tagged Project RAW (Rest A Woman) with a strong message against domestic abuse. He is calling on all women living with abusive partners to Run A Way.
In his words:
“I believe no man will ever hit his Mother because of Respect. If such Respect can be applied in Relationships/Marriages this will significantly reduce the rate of Domestic violence in our society. My vision is to see Men make this pledge to Respect A Woman and apply them in their Relationships. For Women in such violent Relationships its high time they Run Away from this deadly act.”

According to a recent survey, domestic abuse has killed more women in Nigeria than Malaria.
Hope this message will encourage victims of domestic abuse to take a stand and leave before the unexpected happens.
