    The video does not portray the outrage which such a heinous crime should generate. Would have made a lot more sense, if she said what the victim should do and what authorities the criminals should be reported to. Kudos, for throwing the spot light on the issue but…it is a lot more important than recounting the stories she did and telling us story sha! We don hear story taya, Give us victim support organisations, etc. Do some research before a v-log which deals with such an important topic and give us RELEVANT info. Well done!

    Ariyike, this is a dumb video and I expected so much more from an intelligent woman. Where is the insight on the issue? sounds like just ‘gist’ to me. What are you telling us that we don’t know?? Any insight on the true mental state of a man who does this? i.e peadophilia, sexual deviances etc (this is not just a bad person, its a mentally unstable person), any insight on statistics of cases like this both globally and in Nigerian? Any examples of organisations that can protect victims? (you mention you can ‘find online’, how about you share some examples! I doubt any victim will write to you after such a flippant video), any insight on signs parents should look out for? DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE YOU VLOG. Sounds like you are simply trying to get views-“share stories of men who you know have done this before” and what happens after that?? Whats the point? who doesn’t know this happens? Take it up a notch, try to understand why it happens, how people can prevent this from happening and where help can be found. I’m saying take some time to understand the issue before vlogging about anything that comes to your head and catches headlines. Incest is a serious issue and nothing you’ve said here highlights that.

    It should also have been highlighted that sexual abuse from mothers also exist not just fathers.
