Daddy Always Showed Me ‘Blue Film’ Then Rape Me – 13-year-old Girl Narrates Years of Sexual Abuse in Lagos

Wednesday, October 14, a thirteen-year-old girl alleged that her aunt’s husband, who she calls ‘Daddy,’ would play pornographic videos for her to watch and then rape her.

She claimed that in her shop and apartment on Surulere Lane, in the Ojo area of Lagos, she had sexually assaulted her with a threat to kill her if she told anyone.

The revelation followed the arrest by the Nigeria Securit’s Gender Unit of the 48-year-old suspect Charles Ekwe, who is known by the victim as ‘Daddy’.

Upon inquiry, the teen disclosed how she had allegedly been subjected to sexual abuse by her uncle.

Mrs Eke was said to have taken the teenager to the hospital, where a medical examination conducted on her confirmed her hymen broken.

During interrogation, the suspect told NSCDC operatives that he only fondled the girl’s genitals. He also admitted subjecting her to watching pornography on his phone.

The NSCDC Lagos State Commandant, Mr. Ayeni Paul, while addressing journalists, said: “The sexual abuse suspect will face the full wrath of the law and will be handed over to the appropriate agency for further investigation and prosecution.

“This is a heinous crime and all perpetrators of such, when caught, will be made to pay dearly.”

He also said the ”the gender-based unit of the Corps saddled with the responsibility of handling rape, domestic violence, sexual assault and defilement, as well as child abuse cases, has well-trained officers to handle such cases.”

Since she was nine years old, after her father’s death, the adolescent has been living with her aunt.

She alleged that when her aunt was out of sight, the perpetrator violently invaded her.

She said, “It is a blue film (pornography) in his phone that dad would show me each time he wanted to do it.

“Many times, he did it. I can’t say how many times he ‘s done it. I was afraid to tell my aunty because Papa was threatening to drive me out of the house and murder me if I did.

Mrs. blessing Ekwe, the girl’s aunt, figured out that the teenager was not doing well and asked the girl.

He, therefore, enjoined members of the public to report such cases to the command, for prosecution.
