Foluke Daramola-Salako, Nigeria Nollywood actress and founder of Passion Against Rape and Abuse Africa, PARAA, In an interview with media personality, Funmi Iyandahas says that 75 percent of rape cases her organization has handles are committed by religious leaders.
According to Daramola, she was raped by her tenant when she was 17.
She said: “75% of the cases I have on my table are from religious leaders, and a lot of time, we don’t get to the end of it, because when we start, the family would come and tell us we should leave the religious leader to God.”.
According to Daramola-Salako, indecent dressing is not responsible for the increase in the number of rape cases.
“Nothing attracts rape, it is a sign of weakness. Why do they rape minors, teenagers, and even old women, is that also about indecent dressing?
“You hardly find rape cases against young women except for sexual assaults and abuse in workplaces, we find it mostly amongst kids, teenagers, and elderly women, how come you are now telling me it is indecent dressing? And we are not animals.” she added.
