The Lagos Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA) has strongly condemned the disturbing remarks made by reality star, Seyi Awolowo on the BBNaija show.
Viewers were left shocked and mortified by some of the utterances made by Seyi while chatting with fellow housemates.
Two among several had caused unease among viewers, which led to him being dragged on social media.
One of such was a statement he made about Doyin and Ilebaye suffering ‘damages' that nobody can repair, if Ike had been evicted.
The second was his remarks about birthing boys who he claimed would bed the daughters of other people.
These had sparked outrage on social media and the DSVA weighed in to strongly condemn Seyi's words.
According to the agency, Seyi's words help perpetuate harmful attitudes amongst other and foster a culture of violence.
They wrote …
“We strongly condemn the comments made by Seyi Awolowo in the disturbing video that has surfaced. Such remarks perpetuate harmful attitudes and contribute to a culture of violence and abuse.
The bystanders' passive response in the video is also deeply concerning because it only enables such behavior to persist. It is important for us all to actively speak up in circumstances such as this.
We remain committed to addressing issues of domestic and sexual violence. Call our 24/7 Toll Free Line at – 08000 333 333 to make a report and access support.
Together, we can work towards creating a society that truly values consent and is free from violence.”
