75% incidences of rape were allegedly carried out by religious leaders. Popular Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola-Salako, has revealed.
Daramola-Salako revealed this during an Instagram live session.
She said often times they never get to the end of the cases as victims families would rather prefer to drop charges, saying the perpetrators should be left to God.
She further narrated how she was raped by her tenant when she was 17.
He said“75% of the cases I have on my table are from religious leaders and most times we don’t get to the end of it.
“This is because when we start investigating the cases, the family would come and tell us we should leave the religious leader to God.”
Further, she dismissed all claims that indecent dressing is not responsible for rape happening.
She noted that most victims are usually underage, or elder women who were not indecently dressed.
She added, “You hardly find rape cases against young women except for sexual assaults and abuse in workplaces, we find it mostly amongst children, teenagers, and elderly women, how come you are now telling me it is indecent dressing?
