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.

Oluwatosin Adeshokan is a freelance journalist whose works have been published in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, VICE, CNN, Quartz, The Africa Report and more.

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.

A lady, Angel Nduka-Nwosu, went on to narrate that she has been suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after he sexually assaulted her.

However, early this morning, Oluwatosin Adeshokan took to his Twitter page to apologise to his victims, as he said he was truly sorry for making some people feel uncomfortable.

He tweeted,

“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.

“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.

“I’m sorry for making everybody feel uncomfortable. I will like to sincerely apologise to anyone and everyone that I have had inappropriate conversations with in the past. I’m particularly sorry because I had the trust of the women and my friends.

“I take absolute responsibility for my behaviour. I was stupid and idiotic. I have honestly tried to do better as a person. I deeply deeply regret those conversations and hoped that with time, it would go away as I kept trying to be better.

“I know that nobody owes me forgiveness or even the work that comes with me trying to do better. But, I really am honestly sorry and I am trying to do better.

“I have been reaching out in private to some of the people I’ve been inappropriate with. I also understand that waiting until now to do this betrays what I’m saying.

“I know nothing I ever say will make it right, but I promise to do better now and moving forward.”

“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.
