14-year-old girl raped and impregnated by a 70-year-old soldier
A 14-year-old girl who was said to have been repeatedly raped and impregnated by a 70-year-old ex-soldier, Mr. Shuaibu Ahmed, said he gave her N100 the day he deflowered her, but that continued to allow the old man sleep with her because he threatened to kill her.
“Sometime last year or thereabout, my sister sent me to Papa Soldier’s (the suspect) house to collect some compact discs for her.
“The man was sitting in front of his house when I got there. He said the CD was inside on the table. As I went inside, he tiptoed in after me and hurriedly locked the door when I had entered. He removed my clothes, underwear and forced himself on me.
“I tried to shout, but he blocked my mouth and threatened to kill me. After he was through, I saw some whitish substance on me. It was then he told me he had deflowered me and that I should not tell anybody about it.
“Since then he has been having sex with me and each time he would warn me and even threaten to kill me. ‘How he pays me’
“At times, he will give me N100 or N200. The day he deflowered me, he gave me N100. I was not enticed by money; it was his constant threats that frightened me.
“I could not tell anyone because I didn’t want to die. I just finished JSS 1. I had not started menstruation when he first forced me. It was after that encounter I started seeing my period.”
Information gathered showed that the 70-year-old Shuaibu and the victim are neighbors at Ago Tapa area of Ibadan, the Oyo State Capital, and the man is said to have taken advantage of many other under-aged girls in the neighborhood.
News had it that the father of the girl said all he wants is justice as he could not bear the trauma. He had also reported the case at Mokola Police Station and the suspect will be transfered to the State CID for proper investigation.
This is so annoying!
I hope justice will be served and quickly too.
