The issue of domestic violence seems to be on the rise and only few women are bold enough to step out and report their cases.
Such is the case of a beautiful makeup artist, Tosyn, who took to her Instagram handle to reveal how her baby daddy has been beating her for years. She also added that, at a point they separated and allowed their son stay with him.
In a new development, NAIJ.com gathered that on Monday, May 8, when Tosyn went visiting so she could spend time with her son, the guy beat her up again and now she wants full custody of her son.
Tosyn took to her Instagram handle to post several pictures of her face and that of her baby daddy with the caption: " It breaks my heart that I have to do this. This pictures are different abuses, different occasions. My family never knew about the abuse because my ex would portray me as the best thing on the planet that happened to him, that he loved and adored me and we had a perfect family, so that’s what everybody thought. I was also quite outspoken so people thought if something was wrong, I would speak up. We were not married for about 3years. The abuse really started after I had my child, and it just escalated from there and got worse. I had no idea I had the option of leaving cos of the child bound. Tho he was not feeding me cos I am a hardworking lady and paying the bills was not d problem, I was very supportive. Left him December and I went with d child, he begged me and I pitied him so the child started staying wt him February. I started going to see him weekly. Till 8th of May when I went there and he abused me again and dint let me see my child. @hammid_ Pls I want my son with me asap. @mrsyisa Please talk to ur bro, I think I have been patient enof. THIS IS MY STORY #saynotodomesticviolence”
