AceNollywood actress Stella Damascus – has sadly and emotionally revealed for the very first time how she was r@ped by an elderly male member of her family.
According to her, she couldn’t tell anyone about what happened at the time because she was young, naive, and afraid and she is now sharing it with the world to create awareness.
She also added that one of the factors that silenced her was how she knew what happened to others who had spoken up about it and were disgraced and slammed at the end.
She wrote on her Facebook page;
I hate it when people come and say this thing happened to you; why are you just talking about it now. Bouqui, it has happened to me, I don’t say this anywhere, I have never said this before, it has happened to me, it wasn’t raped it was molestation, by someone who was supposed to be related to me.
I was eight years old, I couldn’t talk about it for years because it traumatized me, nobody knew; I was dealing with it myself. Why couldn’t I talk, I knew what happened to others who had spoken up about it, they were disgraced; if you see the shame, even in school, once the word got out, it was about her being a prostitute even as young as we were, they would call you names, so man as seen you?
