Following Uwadia Omozuwa’s rape case, 2019 Big Brother Naija, Pepper Dem season housemate Khafi Kareem has opened up on being a rape victim. The 31 year old took to twitter to share her ordeal in the hands of a rapist.
According to her, the person that raped her is someone she usually confides in. The former police officer who is engaged to another ex housemate, Gedoni added that she kept it a secret because the rapist begged her not to tell anyone.
The Nigerian- British added that although she feels dirty and ashamed to talk to anyone about the experience, she has finally gained the courage to speak out.
In her words;
“WhyIDidntReport – because he apologised right after. Because I made myself believe him being drunk was an excuse. Because the one person I did tell said I caused it. Because I felt dirty and ashamed. #WeAreTired
Yes this did happen to me. I’m sharing in the hope that others will feel no shame in sharing what happened to them. Please don’t deflect or say it is not my story when it was already hard enough sharing it.”
See how some of her fans are reacting to this;
