95 per cent of rapists are Christians or Muslims – Seun Kuti

Grammy awards nominated afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, has blamed religious bodies for the incessant rape cases that have enveloped Africa.

The 38-year-old made the statement via his Instagram page on Monday, declaring that "women weren't created for men."

Seun noted that before Christianity and Islam came to be, women walked around naked for thousands of years.

His statement is coming two weeks after actor and comedian, Olanrewaju Omiyinka, aka Baba Ijesha, was arrested for allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl sexually.

It also coincides with the rape and killing of Iniobong Umoren, a philosophy graduate of the University of Uyo, who left her home in search of employment.

According to him, 95 per cent of rapists are either Christians or Muslims.

He wrote,

"Women weren't created for men. Women weren't created at all, for men. That lie must be erased from your head.

"It's not a coincidence that 95 per cent of all rapists are both Christians and Muslims. African women walked around practically naked for 1000s of years so what women wear isn't an excuse neither.

"How about the damage the Catholic church is doing to our boys and sharia courts sentencing women who defend themselves from rape to death!!

"We must fight rape culture.

"I keep telling you guys, as long as you still respect institutions and ideologies that strengthen rape culture, our women will never be safe."
