75% of rape cases I’m handling involve religious leaders – Actress, Foluke Daramola-Salako

                                75% of rape cases I’m handling involve religious leaders – Actress, Foluke Daramola-Salako
Nigerian actress and founder of Passion Against Rape and Abuse Africa (PARAA), Foluke Daramola-Salako has revealed that 75 percent of the rape cases her non-governmental organization has handle were perpetrated by religious leaders in the country.

Daramola said this during an interview with media personality, Funmi Iyanda.

Foluke Daramola, who was raped by her tenant as a teenager said; 
“75% of the cases I have on my table are from religious leaders, and a lot of time, we don’t get to the end of it, because when we start, the family would come and tell us we should leave the religious leader to God.”.

Daramola-Salako dismissed claims that indecent dressing is what is responsible for the increase in the number of rape cases.
“Nothing attracts rape, it is a sign of weakness. Why do they rape minors, teenagers, and even old women, is that also about indecent dressing?
You hardly find rape cases against young women except for sexual assaults and abuse in workplaces, we find it mostly amongst kids, teenagers, and elderly women, how come you are now telling me it is indecent dressing? And we are not animals.” she said
