Popular Nigerian actress, Juliet Ibrahim, has opened up on an abusive relationship she once experienced.
In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, the actress revealed that one of her ex- boyfriends locked her up and raped her almost on a daily basis.
The Ghanaian born narrated how her former boyfriend, whose name she did not disclose, locked her up in his room till she was rescued by her sister.
Ibrahim noted that when she confronted her ex-lover and told him that what he did was rape, the latter insisted that they were in a relationship so it was his right.
She said, “I told him what he did was rape but he said we were in a relationship.”
She further added that she was not ready neither was she in the mood.
“But was I ready? That was the question. Did I say I was in the mood?
I kept saying no, ‘stop it, stop it’. You pin me down and you’re doing whatever you wanted to do. You’re smiling saying, ‘don’t worry’, and you’re kissing whilst I’m crying, that means you’re a rapist and I had to leave that relationship.”
“I fought my way out of that relationship because he even locked me up in his house for days until my sister Sonia came to find me,” she added.
