75% of rape cases I’m handling involve religious leaders – Foluke Daramola-Salako

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

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

The actress who was raped by her tenant when she was 17, 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.”.

Daramola-Salako dismissed claims that indecent dressing is what is responsible for the increase in the number of 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
