The Nigeria Police Force Spokesman, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi has given his thought on divorce and domestic violence in marriages.
In a passionate message titled, SOCIAL DISLOCATION, DECADENCE: PARENTAL CARE IS KEY, posted on his official X handle on Saturday, ACP Adejobi said he was against divorce in marriages, however, one should walk away when domestic violence steps in.
He argued that divorce or separation of parents has negative impacts on kids, which eventually contributes to social dislocation and decadence.
He also added that divorce should not be part “of our social ego or a parameter to rate social status like what we see today. It is an absurdity.”
He called on parents to settle their differences as no human being is 100% perfect.
“I am one of those who campaign against divorce. I always wish parents stayed together to raise their kids and give them the best they need to grow in all areas. I mediate into cases and plead for amicable settlements of matrimonial causes, for peace to reign, and have good homes in our country,” the force Spokesman wrote.
“However, I kick and campaign against domestic violence. No matter the tolerance you have, when violence sets in on either side, please walk away and be alive. Walking away is an avoidance technique, and the avoidance method in conflict management doesn’t mean cowardice, but a step to rethink and make the right decision, which could save many calamities in your life. This technique can still produce reconciliation, and the marriage can still be sustained. Parental care is key and a blessing to a child’s success in life. All religions have given ur the clies and gimmicks to manage and have successful marriages, be wise.”
