A few hours ago, Peter Okoye of PSquare took to Instagram to share his views on his stand against Domestic violence, while donning a white T-shirt that read “Stop domestic violence.”

“A house where a woman is unsafe is not a Home. Men can be victims too. Women are not the only victims of Domestic violence and Abuse. Men also suffer Domestic Abuse- especially verbal and emotional Abuse – and may be even more ashamed to seek help…”
