Stephanie Linus is proving to be a formidable champion against abuse in whatever form as she releases What My Neigbour Saw, her latest short film advocating help for victims of physical abuse.

The Nollywood star who recently celebrated her marriage anniversary isn't resting on her laurels as she continues the fight against some of society's most notorious vices.

This time, she asks a serious question which we all must answer; if we find ourselves in a situation where we are witnesses to physical abuse, do we look the other way because it has become a norm, or do what is right and report to the authorities?
