Charles Inojie reveals inspiration behind domestic violence campaign

Charles Inojie, the ace actor, has revealed the inspiration behind the ‘Make We Halla’ campaign against domestic violence in Nigeria.

In March, Inojie teamed up with Ali Nuhu, another actor, to educate the public on the negative impact of silence in matters related to domestic violence in the country.

They also shared a video urging Nigerians to speak up when they witness domestic violence within their communities.

They further asked Nigerians to participate in the #MakeWeHalla challenge to support the movement.

In an interview with Wazobia FM, Inojie said he was inspired to begin the campaign to raise awareness of the need for people to speak up because “when we all keep quiet, the perpetrator of this act of abuse seems confident to do more”.

When we all keep quiet, the abuser, perpetrator of this act of abuse seems confident to do more. But when we speak up and against the abuse without being violent, it sends a signal to the perpetrator that he should desist,” he said.

This evokes what prompted myself and Ali to decide to join our voices for this matter. We thought about it and arrived at the fact that we all are guilty if we continue to keep quiet, and watch domestic abuse happen around us.

Make We Halla’ is actually a call to action to everybody around to say if you see something that is bad, speak out and do not keep quiet.”
