Peter Okoye’s wife recalls how she was molested by a Catholic Priest
The wife of Peter Okoye of P Square revealed that she was molested by a Catholic Priest as a teenager while speaking at a recent outing.
Lola made this revelation while she was addressing young ladies at the Kinabuti Dare2Dream event. The mother of two told the girls that while she was in high school, she was molested by a Catholic priest, but couldn't tell anyone because she thought no one was going to believe her.
“When I was a young girl in high school I was molested by a catholic priest and blamed myself. I was a child, I didn’t know any better, I didn't know what to think, I didn't know what to believe, I didn't know how to feel. I blamed myself, I didn’t tell anyone, I was embarrassed, I was ashamed. I didn't know if anyone was going to believe me and I didn't even know if anybody was going to believe me. I felt like I did something wrong. For many years, that incident stuck with me, I became rebellious, I was filled with hate, I didn't want to listen to anyone and it turned me into a very angry person,” Lola Omotayo-Okoye said during a speech which was themed around not letting your past define you.
She further revealed that she was also in an abusive relationship while she was in the university in America before breaking out to start a new life of her own.
She also told the girls that she was questioned and mocked when she started dating a then up and coming musician in the person of her husband and music star, Peter Okoye of the PSquare fame.
