I Was Also A Victim Of Sexual Abuse In Nollywood – Uche Jumbo

Award-winning actress Uche Jombo has disclosed she was a victim of s-xual assault during her early days in the movie industry.

She made this known during an interview with HipTV while speaking on the widespread allegations of s-xual assault of upcoming actresses. She said;

“I’ve been in that kind of situation twice during my starting days. “I rehearsed for almost two weeks only to come next and find that someone else was reading my role because I declined the request to ‘see me’. I wept seriously, I was hurt but four to five years later, I made it big.”

Explaining how she survived and maintained her stance at the time, Jombo said,

“It is personal integrity. In my days, we move on when we’re denied opportunities for refusing to give in to s-xual demands.

Sometimes, it’s your individual strength, drive and process that matters. What takes some six months to accomplish might take others six years. Are you ready to wait for your time or you just want a shortcut that leads to no long-lasting opportunity? If you want the shortcut, chances are that there are people willing to give it.”
