BBNaija housemate, Lolu, shocked viewers after he revealed how a house-help molested him as a child.
The Big Brother ‘double wahala’ contestant said this during a Diary section with Biggie on Monday.
Lolu said he couldn’t tell his mom because she was dealing with a lot. He said he only found the confidence to tell his younger sister about it when he was 21 years old.
What he said
“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.
Why he says he made the revelation
“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.
How he says he has dealt with it
“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.”
