Bamike Olawunmi, popularly known as Bam Bam, a reality tv personality from the 2018 season of Big Brother Naija, has spoken out about how she was s*xually abused as a child by her nanny and also raped.
The reality TV personality said in a video she released on her verified Instagram account that she had experienced s*xual assault from the age of 2 to 8 years old and that the nanny had threatened her not to tell her parents about it.
Bam Bam advised her followers to cast their votes for a candidate who would be able to establish rehab centres and counselling sessions for s*xual assault victims.
She said, “She used my fist to masturbate and forced me to suck her breast while at it, I have also been raped a few times as a young girl, I wasn’t ready to have s*x with some of the guys I dated in the past, so they forced themselves on me. Look, s*x MUST be consensual even in marriage! S*x must be consensual at all times! Don’t manipulate a mind into it! Not to talk of children?!
Bam Bam continued, “Hurt and mentally sick people hurt other people! That nanny was clearly abused or possessed and felt it was okay to do all she did to me! We have sick people making laws to permit their sick orientations! Make it stop!
“I know some vile mouths and sick-hearted people would say rubbish and make unrelated comments! Some may spin this out of context, and some may feel I should have been quiet, Y’all are the major cause of the problem in this world, abused people are committing suicide and some are abusing other people. I owe nobody any explanation! I’m doing my bit, if you care, let’s go!”(sic)
The single mother took the chance to encourage others to build a community that protects children.
She said, “For the ones with the fear of God, let’s come together and build a community to protect each other and our children from these predators! Let’s do our bit to contribute to healing this dark world, let’s do real kingdom work.
“Get your PVC and vote for the person that you know will not be molesting your child behind your back because they think it is okay. We need rehabilitation centres for victims, we need therapists, we need a proper healing system even for those that are married but acting like everything is okay but are not okay.”
