Nigerian writer, Tope Delano has taken to her social media page to share her thoughts on the alarming rape cases the country has been witnessing for quite some time now.

According to Tope, being a rape victim in Nigeria comes with a whole lot which is asides the victim having had to be stripped of their being.

Delano details how most victims would rather not share their story to avoid stigmatization and being blamed for the act.

She wrote;

Do you know what hurts the most when it comes to rape in Nigeria, this is asides having been stripped of your BEING…

Is knowing that you can not share
It’s knowing that even when you do share, you will most likely be blamed and expected to just move on immediately

It is knowing to prepare yourself for stigmatisation should you decide to share and this, many would rather avoid thus the decision to not share at all and just wallow in the emptiness and pain
