Celebrity mom, Juliet Ibrahim has once again opened up on surviving domestic violence in her past relationships.
The Ghanaian actress revealed that she has been a victim of domestic violence, while engaging in a Question and Answer session with her fans. The fan had questioned what victims of domestic violence should do.
“Hello, queen, please, what is your honest take on domestic violence?” “Stay and pray for change or walk away,”
the follower asked.

Using herself as an example, the single mother-of-one revealed that she chose not to stay and fought her way out of the situation. She advised the fan to do the same and to be strategic about it.
“Walk the hell away girl!! I have been a victim myself, no staying. I fought my way out of situations and one has to be strategic about it as well. And have someone u can trust on the outside to inform and you both plan your escape and exit before it’s too late.”

Recall that months back, Ibrahim had narrated her constant rape experience in the hands of an ex lover. She made this shocking revelation during an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
The beautiful actress recounted how her ex would often force his way on her and lock her in for days. Though, not disclosing his identity, Ibrahim revealed she had to fight her way out of the relationship.
“I told him what he did was raped and he said but we were in a relationship. But I was I ready that was the question, did I say I was in the mood? I kept saying no, stop it, stop it, you pin me down and you’re doing whatever you wanted to do and you’re smiling saying don’t worry. And you’re kissing whist I am crying, that means you’re a rapist and I had to leave that relationship.

I fought my way out of that relationship because he even locked me up in his house for days until my sister Sonia came to find me. I was scared, uncertain of what to do because this guy was huge and taller than me he can raise you above the wall. And just imagine that it was every day.
You’re naive. Who do you go and tell? Who would come and fight for you? But ladies you can report it now, go and report. If your husband is forcing you to do when you’re not in the mood it is rape and I tell these men that you cannot force a woman.”
