Find support for abuse and domestic violence from a hotline in Lagos, Nigeria

Domestic violence is the act of controlling or dominating a spouse, partner, boyfriend/girlfriend or family member. The abuse doesn't have to be physical – it may be emotional, sexual, verbal or financial in nature.

If you are experiencing abuse or domestic violence, you do not have to deal with this on your own. Staff from 1 hotlines that support people experiencing abuse and domestic violence in Lagos, Nigeria can help. Contact them if these signs of abuse sound familiar:

  • Avoiding certain topics so that you don’t anger your partner/family member
  • Your partner/family member has told you they will commit suicide if you leave
  • Your privacy online being invaded
  • Your belongings and property being destroyed
  • Not allowing you to work or get an education
  • Believing that your partner/family member’s aggressive behavior is your fault
  • Feeling helpless, desperate, or emotionally numb
  • Being taken advantage of financially

Experiencing a wide range of emotions is perfectly normal for victims of abuse and domestic violence. Doubting the clarity of your mind or your ability to understand what’s happening is also a common consequence of the abuse you have experienced.

It’s normal if you feel isolated. Victims of abuse and domestic violence are exposed to extreme stress and often go through it alone. Even though it might feel difficult to share what you are going through, hotline staff in Lagos, Nigeria will listen, try to understand – and help you.
