Why I Collected N370k Settlement From My Daughter’s HIV+ Rapist - Dad by GistMore4: 10:33am On Aug 29
The police in Rivers State have released a 75-year-old man, Shedrack Ejinwo, arrested last week for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl at Kendox Medical Services, where he received treatment as an HIV patient.

A Delta-based human rights activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, who confirmed the release of the suspect in a telephone interview with our correspondent, said Ejinwo entered into an out-of-court settlement with the father of the victim, Rufus Felix, to pay N370,000 monthly until February 2020.

Gwamnishu, who is the Director-General, Behind Bars Rights Foundation, claimed the victim was persuaded by the wife of the medical director of the clinic, where she worked as a salesgirl, to keep the rape a secret and placed on treatment.

He said, “When that (rape) happened, they placed the girl on drugs for prevention of the virus. So, they opened a card for the girl at the hospital. The man has been released from custody based on a settlement agreement.”

A copy of the settlement seen by our correspondent showed that the signatories included Ejinwo, counsel for the suspect, Amaechi Enere, counsel for the victim, Ibe Ukagha, State PRO, Behind Bars Initiative, Mr Emmanuel Wokoma, Mr Ogbonna Asonye and the victim’s father.

It read in part, “That Chief Shedrack N. Ejinwo will be totally responsible for cost of all medical treatment of Miss Gift Felix from now till February 10, 2020, when there will be a final check on her.

“That upon the final check of Miss Gift Felix on February 10, 2020, if/and having been certified medically fit, Miss Gift and her family will withdraw the petition against Chief Shedrack Ejinwo.”

Gwamnishu told our correspondent that upon Ejinwo’s arrest, he returned to Delta and assigned Ukagha to follow up on the case and make sure the suspect was charged.

The activist said, “He (Ukagha) called me two days ago and said the people wanted to settle the matter. I said, ‘No settlement, please. Take this suspect to court. I will foot the medical bills of the girl.’ We got a place for the girl through the Doctors without Borders in Port Harcourt.

“I was surprised to see the agreement signed by the person I told to monitor the process and make sure the suspect is charged to court.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Nnamdi Omoni, did not respond to calls or a text message.

OP first things d 370k is for d period of d duration of d treatment, not monthly. It is d medical check dat has being scheduled for monthly.. D law in dis country is for d poor man.. Imagine d Nigerian Police instead of prosecuting a rapist and d hospital dat covered it up, dey allowed an out of court settlement with d victims father... Is d 370k going to cover for d trauma and physical injuries d gal suffered?

Poverty is the worst disease on earth because it affects every area of a man's life. How is this man going to explain to the daughter what has just transpired when the child gets matured?

It is very sad but considering the situation of our judiciary i can say the father thinks he has a good deal

So many cases drag for long before conclusion in the court of law and with a team of 'SAN' and knowing some 'wrong' people justice can be bought.
Recall the case of the lawyer in Ibadan who gruesomely killed her husband in cold blood she was given only seven years and pardoned less than two years after. The deceased is gone forever.

so the poor father will think taking upkeep and ensuring proper medical care is acceptable as the deed as been done. After 4 months some of these agencies wont be there to follow up on cases.

The thief that burgled my friends shop was caught on second attempt and given 18months. nothing was recovered from him, my friend is regretting rushing him to the police.


So sad the society we are in.
May our wards never be a victim of cradle snatchers

Well, that can only happen in a lawless clime like Nigeria...


Not in a decent country with regards for the rule of law because if I am right, rape is a criminal offense and not a civil one..

But, what do I know?

Poverty is indeed a disease. At times I don't pity these poor people because they don't pity themselves.

An organisation is ready to assist you fight the battle legally but you kowtow to the rapist because of 370k.


That man would have been jailed and still pay for the girl medical expenses.

I can't just work my head around how these people with poverty mentality thinks,you give them job because they can't feed their two kids and before you know it they start having more kids and claim it was a mistake.


Very anyhowness.
