Lolu, Big Brother Naija housemate, says he was molested for four years from the age of five by his housemaid.
He made the revelation during a diary session on the show on Monday.
“At the age of 5, I was molested by our housemaid and it went on for about four years,” he said.
Lolu said at that tender age, he decided to keep his mother in the dark about the incident because he felt she already had too much on her plate.
“I couldn’t tell my mother, not because I was scared, but because even at that age I figured she had too much to deal with at the time,” he said.
“For that reason, I figured that me telling her that particular part of whatever it is that might have been happening at that time would have been adding more headache.”
While sharing the story, Lolu said he was “trying not to go graphic” with the details but noted that “it was not of my consent and it wasn’t something I was particularly happy with. She would subject me to a lot of punishment if I didn’t do as she pleased”.
Lolu said it took him twelve years to be able to share the story with his younger sister.
“I think that when I turned 21, was when I could finally tell anybody about it. I think it was my younger sister I told about it,” he said.
Lolu has been nominated for eviction from the show this week.
