#BBNaija: How I was molested as a child- Lolu
Lolu, Big Brother Naija 2018 housemate has revealed that he was molested at the age of five. The saddened housemate noted that he was molested by a housemaid employed by his mother.
Lolu made this revelation while speaking with Big Brother during his diary session on Monday.
He stated that he had to deal with the humiliation and never told anyone about it until he became 21.
Hear him: “I was molested at the age of 5 by my housemaid. I didn’t inform my mother at that time because she had challenges and was trying to keep the family.
“The maid would subject me to a lot of punishment and if I refuse, I had consequences which I cannot discuss on national Tv because it is too graphic.
“I finally told my younger sister about it when I turned 21.
“I’m saying this because I want people who have gone through this kind of assault to talk about it. The right thing to do is speak about it.
“Most people don’t know they have the right not to let such things affect them negatively or positively.
“Even though I’ve come to terms with it, I remember the incident sometimes.
“I have sought therapy sometimes, but I am not ashamed or sad about it. I have dealt with it for the past 24 years so I’m fine.”
