A Nigerian man has taken to the X platform to narrate how he witnessed women who verbally and physically abused their spouses while growing up.

He stated this on Monday, May 20, while challenging the generalization of Nigerian men as abusers.

According to him, he has hardly seen a Nigerian man that physically abuses his partner but has witnessed women abusing their partners both verbally and physically.

"They keep referring to Nigerian Man as abusive, but I've hardly come across a Nigerian Man that physical abuse their partner, maybe by coincidence I haven't come across such Men. Growing up the three places my family lived, women has been the abusers, physically and verbally," he wrote.

"I saw them hitting their husbands or abusing them verbally, only once did I see my neighbour physically abuse his wife and not only was he beaten by the men around, he was arrested and his wife was the one that came to bail him, till date I've never seen a man hit his wife

“Except on videos shared on social media. Where I stay currently, no form of abuse from the husbands or their wives (I can't say for certain). Seems to me that a whole population of Nigerian men are judged by what a fraction of those men do.”
