Yesterday, Nollywood mum, Tonto Dikeh, shared an inspirational post on physical abuse via Instagram, and a fan pointed out that the fact that she lied to everyone she was in a comfortable relationship is an abuse to her fans too.
The quote reads:
“Most of us were taught to identify physical and verbal abuse, but with psychopaths, the abuse is not so obvious. You likely won’t even understand that you were in an abusive relationship until long after it’s over.
Through personalised and idealisation and subtle devaluation, a psychopath can effectively erode the identity of any chosen target.
From an outsider’s perspective, you will appear to have lost it, while the psychopath calmly walks away, completely unscathed.
Realizing her mistakes, the actress then apologized.

This comes after, Churchill released evidence (read here) to refute many of Tonto’s claims, insisting that he has never laid hands on a woman, adding that Dikeh was out to destroy his image.
The actress had alleged in a separate interview that her husband subjected her to physical abuse providing evidence of this on her Instagram account (read here).
