A 20-year-old mother of one, Miss Chinasa Chukwu, has told policemen in Ebonyi State how her aunt would bring men to her apartment, sit down and watched as the men slept with her.
She was rescued by the combined effort of a hairstylist, the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) and the Police, while the aunt is on the run.
The state FIDA Chairman, Mrs Grace Chima, told newsmen that it would ensure that the culprit was made to face the law.
“We got a report on May 20, on a case of sexual exploitation. We were told that a young girl was kept in a rented apartment by a woman, whom the victim identified as her aunt.
“We were also informed that the woman always sent in two to three men in a day to have sex with Chukwu, while she watched and get paid at the end of the act.
“So, when we heard about this, we got there immediately on May 21, to rescue the victim from bondage,” Chima said.
She further stated that FIDA in collaboration with the United Nations was committed to ensuring that rights of women and children were protected in the state.
She promised to update the media as the development unfolded.
The victim, Miss Chukwu, while narrating her ordeal at the state ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, alleged that her aunt always claimed that the money from the act would be used to pay for her training.
The 20-years-old victim from Akaeze in Ivo Local Government Area of the state is currently pregnant and has a two-year-old son.
“My aunt always brought two to three men each day to have sex with me in a rented apartment she got for me while she watched the act,” Chukwu said.
Meanwhile, a hairstylist, Mrs Chizoba Okemiri, who enrolled Chukwu as an apprentice in her salon, alleged that the victim was subjected to a brutal sexual trade and exploitation by her aunt.
Okemiri, who corroborated the incident, noted that the victim’s aunt had allegedly continued to arrange both married and young men to sleep with Chukwu in her rented apartment.
She said that the victim revealed that her aunt had threatened to discipline her for disclosing her activities.
“Chinasa was brought to me on Easter day by her mother, aunt and aunt’s friend for the enrollment.
“After the bargaining for her training, her mother pleaded that she would be coming to the salon with her son because she might not cope with the child and her job.
“Another apprentice in my shop had reported to me that men always visited the victim which I discovered and tried to stop her from seeing them.
“When I confronted the victim about the men, she revealed that it was her aunt who arranged for those men.
“When the visit persisted, I called her mum and aunt to confirm the development, but the aunt told me that I will get to know why they visit her, one day.
“I became uncomfortable and had to report the matter to a staff of Nigeria Television Authority (NTA), who now facilitated her rescue.”
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Loveth Odah, said that the victim was brought to Kpirikpiri Police Division in Abakaliki, having been allegedly exploited sexually by her aunt, a suspect who is now at large.
“Investigation is still ongoing in the division and I have confirmed that the girl was brought to the division by FIDA,” Odah said.
My colleague stabbed my mother twice, raped her- Nigerian soldier narrates
Following the rape and unjust murder of a 100 level student of the University of Benin, a former Nigerian soldier has shared a heartrending story of how his mother was raped by his colleague in the barracks where he lived.
Narrating the sad incident via his Twitter handle @FestusNG, the former soldier disclosed that he was still serving in 146 Batallion and his mum had come to pay him a visit in the barracks.
According to the former soldier, a fellow soldier found his way into his house, stabbed his mum and raped her after he left for duty.
”Rape is a disgusting thing. When I was a soldier serving in 146 battalion. My mum visited me, brought foodstuffs, cooked all sorts of food and served my neighbours (soldiers).
At 6 pm, I left for my duty. My neighbour broke into the ceiling and gained entry into my apartment.
Stabbed my mum twice at the back and raped her. My mum was a mess and almost took her own life. I didn’t forgive myself until I left the army. When you plan of raping anyone, you plan to destroy them. Say No to Rape.” he tweeted.

Good for her, man rejoices over rape, murder of Uwa Omozuwa
Nigerians have called on the Nigerian Police to arrest and investigate a man, identified as Livinus Elem, over comments he made on the death of Uwa Omozuwa.
While the Nigerians mourn the brutal killing of the University of Benin [UNIBEN] undergraduate, who was raped and brutalised by four yet-to-be-identified men inside a Redeemed Christian Church of God [RCCG] church in Edo State, Elem took to Facebook to rejoice over her death.
Elem in a post suggested the undergrad got what she deserved.
Good for her why will she be dating two roommates at the same time.”
His comment has gone viral on Facebook and he was forced to delete it and deactivate his account.
Facebook users are asking for him to be probed since he made a claim about the deceased that is not known to the public.
Recall that 22-year-old Uwa Vera Omozuwa was brutally r*ped and murdered inside Redeemed Christian Church of God, where she was studying.
