She sympathizes with victims who lecturers have refused to let go and are depressed and frustrated. She tells how much she knows how it feels to be asked to do all sort of things like allowing a lecturer touch your breast, make you touch him and do things more than that just to scale through, which is really sad to know
She wrote on her page on Instagram
”#sexforgrade Even if it has never happened to you I am most certainly sure you know someone who has had to endure unnecessary pressure, sexual advances, harassment and all sort of despicable utterances from these beasts called “lecturers”. What a time to be alive, what a time to join the conversation. My heart deeply goes out to all the females out there who have gone into depression because one lecturer refused to let them go until they traded their bodies for grades, some have committed suicide, some dropped out, until you’ve had to endure it, you honestly do not want to imagine how frustrating it can be. Lecturers purposely holding on to your result, asking you to show them your breast, touch them and make them feel good or else you won’t pass the course. Watching that documentary broke me, I couldn’t but imagine the women in his church he must have also used his position of power to intimidate too. Like how can you call the name of God so carelessly? Now I hear he attempted suicide yesterday, what a coward. You cannot die, uncle, you must face the hand of the law. Do you know how many girls have jumped off a building or drank poison all because they did sleep with said lecturers and still didn’t get the grades cos said lecturer wants to keep having his way with them? Did you think of your own wife? Kids? Family before you put another human being thru hell? He must live and answer the law, other lecturers must be named and shamed too. Pls let’s all come together to use our voice and force the ministry of education to act now, name and Shane them, jail them, this conversation must continue till they hear us.”
In accordance, Timi Dakolo whom has in conjuction with his wife been dragging the Pastor of COZA over an allerged rape case is out on Instagram to react on the issue too but was basically concerned about using the name of God to commit shamful acts. He captioned his post; Nowadays when someone is saying “I give God the Glory” We need to ask,Which God?
