VIDEO: I have been raped, gang-raped several times, Nigerian lady reveals


A Nigerian lady, identified as Dorothy Edet, has narrated how she has had to survive sexual assault several times.

Edet, who said the assaults started from her childhood, disclosed this while speaking to journalists during the funeral of Iniobong Umoren, the jobseeker who was raped and murdered in Akwa Ibom.

The rape survivor said she was been raped by close relatives, strangers as well as people she went to sell her wares to when she was a child.

She added that she was raped at the age of 24 by a pastor who said he wanted to perform deliverance on her.

She said;

“My name is Dorothy Edet. I am actually a survivor of rape. I understand what it means. When people talk about rape, I also want to air out my voice.

“At the age of seven, I was gang raped; dressing has nothing to do with rape. What a woman wears cannot even push somebody to rape a woman? At the age of 10, I remember my uncle telling my mum he is going to send me to school and that was how they came, took me home and they sexually abused me from 10 to 12 years old.

At the age of 15, I was raped when I went to sell bananas for my mum. They finished eating the bananas and the groundnut and they still raped me. AT the age of 20, I was gangraped again when I went to sell garri. They raped me, collected the money, collected the garri.

At the age of 24, I was raped by my pastor who said he wanted to do deliverance for me and he did not do the deliverance. He raped me. Within five days, I was gangraped by a group of thieves who nearly destroyed my body. What did people say: “don’t say anything.”

They keep telling victims not to say anything. Do you know the psychological trauma that they pass through. This thing is painful. You don’t know what we face.”
