The Nollywod actress disclosed that but for the intervention of another student called Michael who suddenly turned into an angel in that context who came to her rescue, the inevitable could have happened.

As a young girl, a lot of things happened to me and I’ve also seen a lot of things. I grew up in a polygamous home and a lot of people lived with us. When I was in my final year in secondary school, I was almost raped. It was a very close shave. I was saved by a guy called Michael Akinyemi.

I didn’t report then because of the stigmatization. The experience was really bad because my assaulter was bent on molesting me, hence we struggled so much. I still remember the guy’s name but I would leave it out
