dc.description.abstract Nigerian women continue to suffer violence in the privacy of their homes on a daily basis. This research investigates the need for a gender sensitive and specific law that not only prohibits domestic violence but that is also binding on all states in Nigeria. However, this research argues that mere legislation on DV is just not enough in attempts to curb domestic violence. This is especially considering the complexities and inadequacies of the Nigerian legal framework. A multifaceted approach therefore becomes imperative if there is to be any serious attempt towards curbing this violence in Nigeria. en
