The issue of sexual abuse is quite prevalent with ladies seeming to be the main victims. The Nigerian social media has been rent with cries for justice after a young lady, Uwa, was raped and killed inside a church in Benin where she went to read.
In the wake of Uwa’s death, a number of Nigerians have taken to social media to share their sexual abuse stories while slamming detractors who always find ways to blame the victim.
Just recently, Nigerian singer, DJ Switch, opened up on how she was abused by her uncle when she was just a little girl.
According to her, the uncle was a priest named Basil and he had threatened not to bless her if she ever reported the case to her parents.
Speaking further, Switch said that people who have been abused should lay curses on their abusers and that women also abuse men but it is mostly men who are caught.
Excerpts of her post reads: “I hadn't posted about this in particular cus it was hard for me personally but I must say my story and be free of it! When people say "what did she wear?" "Where did she go?" "Why was she alone"? I curse those people! I've never told this story outside only 2 people, my immediate elder brother Emma n my sis Lola! I was a child, about 11years old when my uncle, as in real life relative uncle would forcefully touch me and threaten me on top that he would not bless me if I tell my parents, now here's the shocker... He was a priest! His name is Basil. I'm sure some of my family members will be shocked when they see this.”

In reaction to DJ Switch’s post, someone took to the comment section to claim that the uncle in the story is no longer a priest because he was removed and is being sought by the American government for molesting a disabled girl who was in his care.
The comment from Chizobaudeh reads: “He has been removed from priesthood and is been sought after by the American government for molesting a disabled girl left under his care. His full mame is former father Basil Onyia.”
