Demystify Abuse Campaign Goes To Abuja

Displaced-PersonsThe need to go to IDP camps with #DemystifyAbuse campaign arose when I kept hearing of the constant rape and sexual abuse faced by most Nigerians who found themselves at these camps.

Most importantly I HAVE HOPE – hope for what tomorrow. and for a better life.

When A Father Slut-Shames His Daughter

“I remember when I was staying with my biological father. My cousins came around. Popsy said they should bring an extra bed to my room for one of them to crash.

The guy woke up at night, put a hand across my mouth and was trying to force my legs apart. He said he will kill me if I screamed or said a word.

I was calm. As he struggled to pull my pant I told him I wanted to pee. After much deliberation he let me go to pee. I remained in the bathroom till morning when my dad wanted to pee. He asked why I was locked in the bathroom by 4 am and I told him what happened. He said it was my fault… Why would I wear nightie. I didn’t even have boobs then.
