Doctor sedates married woman, rapes and sews tight her womb in Sokoto

Published

A medical doctor at a public hospital in Sokoto State, Tijjani Faruk, has confessed to raping a married woman after administering sedative injection on her.

According to reports, Mr Faruk had invited his patient on the pretext of further medical examination but ended up raping her.

The husband of the patient, simply identified as Alhaji Shehu, said he was referred to the doctor by a family friend when his wife was diagnosed of fibroids late 2018.

A couple of months after the operation, he said the doctor called him on phone, requesting that he send his wife for “further medical examination” the next day.

“He called me one Friday afternoon requesting me to send my wife to him for further medical examination on Saturday 10am. Unknown to me that the doctor had evil plan to rape my wife, I did as requested,” he said.

“When she woke up at 7pm on that Saturday, she discovered that Dr Tijjani Ahmad Faruq (TJ) had sexual intercourse with her while she was unconscious.

“When she asked him why he did that to her, he gave no reason, but only apologized and pleaded with her to forgive him.

“When she asked Dr Tijjani about the family planning pills she was supposed to use in order to prevent immediate conception after the fibroid operation, he said she won’t be able to conceive again.

“A series of womb ultrasounds carried out at Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital (UDUTH) and Zafafi Hospital of Bello Way Sokoto showed that Dr Tijjani has instead of only removing the fibroid complained of, negligently sewed and blocked my wife’s womb, thereby rendering her permanently sterile.

“But since that fateful day, I noticed that my wife had refused to visit his hospital whenever I directed her to do so.

“When she finally revealed the shocking news to me that her doctor raped her and everything that transpired on that day, I instructed her to go once again in order to have his confessions on tape.

“During the sting operation I arranged with my wife to get a proof, my wife confronted him again on why he raped her, the doctor was heard on tape saying ‘this will be the end of your marriage if you tell your husband’.

“Even on that very day she went to secretly have his confessions on tape, he struggled to rape her but she refused,” Mr Shehu said.

In a petition written to the Commissioner for Health, Sokoto State, the lawyer of the victim, Muhammad Mansur-Aliyu, demanded justice for his client, saying the doctor should appropriately be sanctioned.

According to Code of Medical Ethics in Nigeria, the doctor risks delisting from medical register and prosecution.

“Any registered practitioner who abuses his professional position, for example by committing adultery or indulging in any improper conduct or by maintaining an improper association with a patient, is liable to have his name erased from the Register.

“In this connection, any finding of fact which has been made in proceedings in the High Court of an appeal from a decision in such proceedings shall be conclusive evidence of the fact in any trial held by the Medical and Dental Practitioners Disciplinary Tribunal,” a provision in the Code of Medical Ethics in Nigeria said.

It was also gathered that the doctor had initially denied the allegations, but when the tape of his conversation with his patient was played to him by the investigative panel, he confessed to having sex with her.

The state commissioner of Health, Ali Inname, on Thursday confirmed the incident, saying the ministry had constituted a panel to investigate the matter.

The permanent secretary of the ministry, Almustapha Othman, explained further that the doctor has been invited to the investigative panel and queried.

“In the interim, he was queried. And when we receive his reply within 48 hours, the ministry may interdict, suspend or take whatever action appropriate pending the outcome of the investigation,” he said.

Mr Othman said the outcome of the investigation will be available in the first week of April.

My wife lied, incest is a taboo in Yorubaland, says man accused of raping his nine and seven-year-old daughters

Published

“I cannot sleep with my children. The rape could have been from an outsider and not me. I didn’t know about it.” These were the words of 48-year-old Femi Onifade, who stands accused of defiling his nine and seven-year-old daughters.

Onifade, a welder, was arrested by the personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps [NSCDC] in Ondo State after his wife, Tope, filed a complaint that he committed the act at his residence, No 27 Liberty Hospital Road, Oluwatuyi area of Akure.

But when he was paraded at the NSCDC headquarters in Alagbaka, Akure, on Monday, the suspect said it was not possible for him to have carnal knowledge of his children because such was a taboo in Yoruba land.

He suggested the crime might have been committed by an outsider, alleging his wife of 11 years raised a false alarm on him.

Femi said,

“I used to have quarrels with my wife. We had a clash around 11pm on that day and she left the house and because of the curfew in town, I didn’t want her to take the children with her. I insisted that the children must remain with me. My wife left and did not come back.

“I went to her family to report and her family begged me. My wife came back two days later and asked me what happened to the children when she examined their private parts.

“My wife accused me of sleeping with our daughters and I said I could not have done it, because it was a taboo in Yoruba land. I am not happy because I was accused of what I did not do. I went to the palace of the Deji of Akure to take an oath for people to believe me.

“I don’t drink and I don’t smoke. It is a lie. I cannot sleep with my children. The rape could have been from an outsider and not me. I didn’t know about it

“The children were crying because they did not see their mother that night. My children used to cry whenever my wife and I were fighting. It was a neighbour, who told my wife that one of the girls cried till daybreak.”

However, his wife, Tope, who vowed to quit the 11-year-old marriage, said Femi told her that what she noticed in their daughters’ private parts was evidence of dysentery when she raised the alarm over her discovery.

Tope said the children informed her that their father inserted something in their private parts and also used his mouth.

She stated,

“The day we had a quarrel, my husband did not allow me to sleep in the house. I asked neighbours to beg him on my behalf, but he said I should go. He did not allow me take any of my daughters along. I had to find somewhere to sleep. The next day, a neighbour called me to say one of our daughters cried all through the night.

“The neighbour begged me to come back home. I came back and in the night, I noticed something in one of the children’s private parts. I asked my husband and he told me it was dysentery.

“I woke up the eldest daughter and asked her and she pointed at their father. The children said their father used to put something in their private parts.”

Tope added that tests carried out on the children revealed that both had been deflowered.
