The reality TV star shared the harrowing experience via her Twitter page on Tuesday, June 2, 2020.

According to her, the reason she didn’t report the rapist was because the one person she told about the incident, ended up blaming her for getting raped.

Khafi added that she decided to share her story to give hope to other victims to speak up about their own experiences.

She wrote;

“#WhyIDidntReport – because he apologised right after. Because I made myself believe him being drunk was an excuse. Because the one person I did tell said I caused it. Because I felt dirty and ashamed. #WeAreTired.”

“Yes, this did happen to me. I’m sharing in the hope that others will feel no shame in sharing what happened to them. Please don’t deflect or say it is not my story when it was already hard enough sharing it.”

This is coming after lots of Nigerians decided to speak out and fight rape on social media. Khafi who would be getting married to her fiance, Gedoni in few months time decided to summon courage and speak out.

It would be recalled that on Saturday, May 30, 2020, a young lady, Uwa Omozuwa was murdered in Benin city.

The young lady was raped and died from injuries sustained at the premises of one of the branches of the RCCG, Edo Province 10, Ikpoba Hill where she had gone to read.
