Actor Yomi Fabiyi speaks on domestic violence accusations

Nollywood thespian, Yomi Fabiyi, has broken the silence on the ongoing dispute with his baby mama, Grace Oreofe.

According to a blog, Fabiyi was accused of domestic violence, infidelity and lack of respect for Grace, who was described as the actor’s wife.

The blog also claimed that the second marriage to Grace ended after Fabiyi took her to court over an undisclosed issue.

Fabiyi, however, debunked claims that he was ever married to Grace. He said, “I have only been married once and it lasted 10 years.”

Taking to his verified Instagram account, the actor posted chat evidence and snapshots of legal documents to debunk the rumours and exonerate himself.

He said, “I hate violence or crimes. Men go through a lot of domestic violence, but because our upbringing stinks and it is always emotional blackmail, no one wants to listen to the man. When you talk, you are labelled talkative.

“One of the few things done enough to make me react violently but endured. You (Grace) forced yourself to stay in my house and still be the one to treat me like trash and subject me to provocations. I tried to remain silent and deal with the issue with decorum. Unfortunately, people like this will always hold men to ransom because they have a blog like this to carry out their evil intentions.

“Instead of going public, after reporting to the Police at Ipakodo Police Station four (4) times, the Police referred us to the Office of Public Defender. The court did mediation, but she went ahead to still go on with violence; hence the Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR).

“During the session, she had nothing against me and the officers concluded all my allegations and evidence were genuine. For sake of peace, they advise we live separately. She opted to move out and travel to the East. She was my girlfriend, we are not married.”

Fabiyi further criticised the blogging site for its lack of diligence, saying, “If this blogger was ethical enough to balance story before publishing, this syndicate will know it is not a story to publish as it will mean outright wickedness and evil against me and my career.”
