75 per cent of rape cases I handle are tied to religious leaders :- Foluke Daramola

Nollywood actress and founder of Passion Against Rape and Africa, PARAA, Foluke Daramola-Salako has said that 75 per cent of the rape cases her organization has handle were committed by religious leaders

Daramola disclosed this during an interview with media personality, Funmi Iyanda

The actress, a rape victim when she was 17 years old said

“75% of the cases I have on my table are from religious leaders, and a lot of time, we don’t get to the end of it, because when we start, the family would come and tell us we should leave the religious leader to God.”.

She also raised a point that indecent dressing is not the cause of most rape cases.

“Nothing attracts rape, it is a sign of weakness. Why do they rape minors, teenagers, and even old women, is that also about indecent dressing?

You hardly find rape cases against young women except for sexual assaults and abuse in workplaces, we find it mostly amongst kids, teenagers, and elderly women, how come you are now telling me it is indecent dressing? And we are not animals.” she said
