13 Year-Old Girl Raped and impregnated by 50 Year Old Man in FCT delivers baby Boy
-FCT Police Command orders arrest of alleged rapist
– Politician/Businessman Nze Chidi Duru, others vows to seek justice, rehabilitate victim
A bizarre incident happened in the sleepy village of Wumba on the outskirts of Abuja metropolis last year when a 13 year old girl, Ngozi Nwosu went out to hawk banana on behalf of her mother. Ngozi and her 3 other siblings had been abandoned by their father to their mother and had to survive through menial jobs.
On this fateful day towards the third quarter of 2019, Ngozi went to hawk her banana wares and was beckoned by the 50 Year old man she simply described as “Uncle Double”. The FCT Police has now discovered his name to be Okezie Okoro. She got to him and under the pretext that he wanted to buy banana, forced and raped Ngozi, who was 13 years old at the time.
After his wicked act, “Uncle Double” Okoro warned Ngozi never to mention it to anyone or she dies.
The poor girl kept the incident to herself!
Shortly after that, she went hawking again and “Uncle Double” again accosted her, raped her again, this time with two other men.
Ngozi got pregnant after that and delivered a baby boy at Fidelity Hospital, Wumba this week.
Outraged by this development, Nze Chidi Duru, politician and businessman took up the issue by approaching the FCT Police Commissioner, CP Bala Ciroma who immediately dispatched a 6-member strong team from the FCT Police CID to take up the case.
Ngozi was this morning discharged from the hospital while the Police had vowed to fish out the alleged rapists and prosecute them.
Meanwhile, as public outrage continues over the unfortunate incident, Nze Duru has commenced moves to rally local and international support for the girl who hails from a very poor home and would not be able to cater for her baby except she receives helping hands from public spirited individuals.
Speaking exclusively with DgovScoops, Nze Duru vowed to not only ensure justice for the young girl, but rally necessary support for her sustenance.
” This is a very wicked act and it must not go unpunished. I have not been myself since I heard about the issue this morning. How can anyone be this callous to a girl of 13? Thank God CP Ciroma has taken up the gauntlet by ordering an immediate investigation into the case and bring the culprits to book.
In the meantime, I have reached out to my ALUMNI at Lagos Business School to raise funds for the rehabilitation of the girl and care for her baby boy. I have also appealed to my colleagues in the National Assembly both former and present to come to the aid of Ngozi.
Efforts are also underway to contact relevant international organizations towards ensuring justice for the poor girl”, he declared.
