COZA 2019! 5 DEEP REASONS WHY BUSOLA DIDN’T SPEAK UP WHEN SHE WAS 17 YEARS
- Society will, in general, accuse the unfortunate victim predominantly the female folks, for what befalls them. Some will say that it’s the ladies who throw themselves on the man especially if he’s a good looking man. The others will even give excuses that the Guy is human and can be tempted backing it up with an opinion that “body no be wood”, without considering the fact that consent is really important in such act. In some recent cases of rpe the unfortunate victim was accused of trying to bring down the man. This is very insensitive due to the fact that the action itself has already caused a damage to the victim, why not consider the pain and the agony he/she is passing through as a result of the assault.2 There’s an obsolete social conviction that decent ladies don’t get assaulted. Such convictions can make the victim to believe that the rpe may have been their own fault. Individuals ask unfortunate victims questions for example, “Why were you in that place at that time?,” ” why did you wear seductive dress at the time” and “Why did you go to that person’s room?” Such inquiries can move the fault to the victim instead of the culprit however such hypothesis can’t stand in the assault case between Busola Dakolo Vs COZA Pastor – Abiodun Fatoyinbo as the unfortunate victim affirmed that the Pastor strolled into their family house when her parents were absent and assaulted her. 3 Due to the way people will react, speaking up about a rpe incident can be agonizing and can cause the victim humiliation, shame and segregation in the society. Sometimes the society view this victims as if they are some sort of evil spirit and will always use the rpe incident to describe the person anytime any day.
- Last but not the least, most of these r*pe victims usually get victimized by somebody they know very well, which can make it harder for them to speak up. This is the reason every parent should be involved in the growth of their children, don’t be to busy not to teach them about sex education, how to be bold enough to express themselves and strong enough to fight for their lives, ensuring them of their safety in your hands. Watch out for those pervert uncles, cousin, relations, close family friends, neighbours, mates, lesson teachers etc, nah them. The predators are also within.
