“I Was Sexually Abused At 10 By My 35 Year Old Neighbor” – Actor Benson Okonkwo

The actor said he didn’t tell his parents about the incident but told their gate man and he says he is only talking about it now because it is bothering him. 

”I have gone through a lot in the past and that is what has made me the Benson Okonkwo many love and respect today in the industry. I was sexually abused at the tender age of 10 by my 35 year old neighbor simply called Aunty Amaka, a lady who I love and respect. She took advantage of me on that fateful afternoon after luring me with sweets and biscuits. She stole my innocence and ever since then I have been haunted by that hurtful memory. That’s why I put passion into my acting career because its takes away my pain”.

“It is bothering me. I know I cannot turn back the hands of time and the memory will live with me but talking about it now will definitely relieve me and I will be fine. I want to advise parents to be watchful and careful about people they leave their children with or who their children spend time with. It is very important.” He said.
