Lolu, one of the housemates in the ongoing Big Brother Naija show has revealed that he was sexually abused by their housemaid at the age of five.
Lolu revealed this while speaking with Big Brother during his diary session on Monday.
He said he had to deal with the shame and never told anyone about it untill he turned 21.
“The maid would subject me to a lot of punishment and if I refuse, I had consequences which I cannot discuss on national television 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.”
