Big Brother Naija season 6 finalist, Angel Smith, has said her first sexual assault experience was at the University of Lagos.
The reality TV star noted that she only spent two weeks in the institution and her dropping out was in connection to a sexual assault experience she had.
Angel made this known in an interview with media personality, Taymesan, published on Friday.
“I was in UNILAG for only two weeks. I struggled so much for those two weeks because when I got into UNILAG was my first sexual assault experience,” she said.
Speaking further she said:“After that experience happened, I can remember just moving through it and pretending like it never happened.
“It affected my school life so much. I always blamed it on not knowing what to do in UNILAG when actually, I’ve always been fully aware of what I wanted to do.”
Angel, who grew up with her grandma, revealed that she moved from wanting to become a gynaecologist to being so good in English that she won several Spelling Bees and boosted her writing skills.
“I knew what I wanted to do but I didn’t just do that because I had experienced something so traumatic and I didn’t speak to anybody about it, especially not my granny because I had so much shame,” Angel said.
