  • He was blasted by his fans over a controversial statement he made weeks ago.


Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, clarified the statement he made weeks ago on an Instagram post where he said:

Not long after he put out his message, his fans blasted him for supporting the men in laying the blames on women in cases of domestic violence.

When asked by the Punch, Yul Edochie explained that he was just trying to implore women to treat their husbands with respect.

‘I did not witness my father beating up my mother, so why would I support domestic violence? I believe that it is wrong in all ramifications. But on the other hand, there are always two sides to a coin, and in science, there is something called cause and effect.

‘We shouldn’t just focus on the effect while totally ignoring the cause. With my post on social media, I was just trying to implore women to treat their husbands with respect. Even if you are not married, it is important to respect every person you come in contact with,’ he said.

Speaking further, he said, ‘What I have said does not absolve the men of blame. As a man, you should be mature and strong enough to keep calm in the face of provocation. Violence is never the answer.’
