“#IGofPolice #EveryoneGetInvolved #SayNoToRape,” she wrote on Twitter.

Her comments comes a day after the First Lady of Ekiti State, Mrs Bisi Fayemi, wife of governor, Kayode Fayemi, shared her near-rape experience in the light of the case involving Busola Dakolo.

The wife of the Ekiti state governor who opened up in an article shared online said she is appalled by the number of women who have come out to shame and condemn the wife of the singer for daring to open up about her bitter experience.

She is also of the opinion that the culture of shaming rape victims and forcing them to silence their pain by parents, family members, guardians, and close friends must stop in Nigeria.

According to her, Busola Dakolo and her husband Timi should be commended for their bravery as the court of public opinion seems to be in their favour over the matter.
