She said: “#WhyIDidntReport – because he apologised right after. Because I made myself believe him being drunk was an excuse. Because the one person I did tell said I caused it. Because I felt dirty and ashamed. #WeAreTired.”

“Yes, this did happen to me. I’m sharing in the hope that others will feel no shame in sharing what happened to them. Please don’t deflect or say it is not my story when it was already hard enough sharing it.”

As the fight against rape continues to gain massive traction on Nigeria’s social media space, Khafi decided to narrate her experience by joining the hashtag #WhyIDidin’tReport.
