"I Thought Time Would Have Healed You" - Journalist Who Sexually Assaulted Underaged Girls Pens Controversial Apology

Oluwatosin Adeshokan has apologized after a number of women came out to accuse him of taking advantage of them when they were teenagers.


The accusations of sexual misconduct started pouring in after his friend and fellow journalist, Kiki Mordi took to Twitter to call him out after she discovered what he had allegedly been doing to girls. He was accused of claiming to be a feminist only to use the opportunity to gain the trust of young girls in the feminist space and young female writers.

Some of the girls claim he starts out by telling them he loves how they write then he preys on them after gaining their confidence.

Hours after the accusations started, Oluwatosin apologized on Twitter, writing: "I'm sorry to everyone, I truly am. There's no explanation for what I've said and done but I'm honestly and truly sorry. I was idiotic and there's no explanation. I swear I am sorry for my actions. I don't know how to make this right but I want to. I really am sorry."

He added in another tweet: "I’m honestly and truly sorry for everything I did. I rationalised it in my head by thinking it was sexual banter. It wasn’t. I made people uncomfortable. I’m honestly and truly sorry. I know this it too little too late and I was caught and this seems like I’m trying to save face."
