A Nollywood actress who was raped by her ex-husband on their first date is finding it extremely difficult to forget the ordeal she suffered in the man’s hands who is still tormenting her life.
Though the couple have since gone their separate ways, the lady is recounting how she was sexually abused but never had the courage to report the incident to the security agencies but also ended up marrying the same man out of fear.
Etinosa Idemudia, a Nollywood actress on her Instagram page stated “Now he sends his friend Adedamola Adeleke. Fear is your strongest weapon. I am no longer afraid.
Fear and victim shaming are an abuser’s strongest weapons. I have no shame anymore. For someone that has been locked out of the house wearing nothing but her underwear in the middle of the night. No Dami, no I don’t have shame. No shame, no childhood, no fear you guys took that all away from me.
Should I talk about why I made that video about rape last year??? Because what I said ladies should do was exactly what I did. I closed my eyes and told myself I wanted it. When I made that video I was battling with memories and I used the only coping mechanism I know comedy. But Nigerians did not know. I could not come out and say it was my experience because how would I explain to Nigerians that I married a man who raped me on the first date. Same and fear. Dammi leave me alone. you can’t bully me anymore.
