A former spokesperson for John Dramani Mahama, Joyce Bawa Mogtari has admonished women in abusive relationships not to be afraid to seek help.
Speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Friday, she indicated that no matter how small the assault may be, victims need to open up to at least one confidante.
“We ought to state without equivocation that anybody in any space where there is any type of violence; emotional, physical or otherwise should seek help from the nearest person.
“If you try on one door and it doesn’t open, the next one just might but please, please get help,” she said.
Conversations surrounding domestic violence have been revived after two women within one week allegedly died as a result of domestic violence.
On Saturday, March 6, 2021 one Lilian Dedjo passed on after her husband assaulted her during an argument they had on March 1.
According to reports, she went for treatment at the Madina Polyclinic but her condition deteriorated when she returned home and on March 6, fell into a coma and pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
Similarly, a Level 300 student of the Evangelical Presbyterian University College has died after she was allegedly assaulted by her boyfriend.
Considering these and many unreported issuess, Madam Mogtari is urging women to prevent it from happening again.
Mrs Mogtari stressed that help is always available to ensure that victims of domestic violence are given justice and subsequently saved from their abusers.
