Nollywood actress, Chioma Apkotha has said that verbal abuse does more damage to a person than physical abuse.
The 42-year-old said this in an Instagram story on Wednesday.
Chioma also advised those who are going through any form of abuse to speak up while they can.
“Verbal abuse does as much damage as physical abuse if not worse. Get out whilst you can. My beautiful angel. Don’t let people tell your own side of the story from their point of view.
“Be alive for you first. Choose you first. Charity begins with you.''
This came following the death of gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu who died from alleged domestic violence against her by her husband Peter Nwachukwu.
