95% of readers say they will tell if a step-father is harassing them

In response to a letter sent in by a reader that her mother's husband has been harassing her sexually, 95.24 % of voters on Pulse Nigeria Poll agree that they will report the abuser to the mother.

Worried Girl

A dedicated Pulse reader, Agatha, sent in a worrying letter narrating how her step-father has been harassing her sexually and is bent on doing everything to sleep with her.

The devastated 22-year-old undergraduate wanted other readers to advice her.

Part of her letter read:

"My name is Agatha and I am a 22-year-old lady in my final year in the university. My mother and my father separated when I was 10 and since then, I have lived with my mother who is into her third marriage after she divorced my father.

Her present husband is a younger man and he is the cause of my problems at the moment because he has vowed to do everything to have sex with me.

He even attempted to rape me one night when my mother had gone for a night vigil. I am no more comfortable in the house and I have no where to go because my dad and his family do not want to have anything to do with the two children my mother got for him."

Her problem is that if she tells her mother, she may not believe her and could even turn round to lay the blame on her.

This poser was put to vote:

At the time of collating the poll result, a whopping 95.24 percent voted that they will tell while just 4.76 percent said they would not.

How Nigeria voted:

95.24 % - Yes, I will tell her

4.76% - No, I will not tell her

So how would you vote?
