Family Sacks Mother Of Eight-year-old Rape Victim For Seeking Justice by dre11(m): 9:21am On Sep 08
Ifeyinwa Ezukamma, a 40-year-old mother of five, was chased out of her matrimonial home by her husband’s family for insisting on justice for her eight-year-old daughter, raped by her tenant.

Ezukamma told newsmen that the incident took place in their country home, Ogidi, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State. She said though she caught the suspect, aged 57, in the act on July 23, she claimed the man had been violating her daughter since March.

The woman, who had since packed to her relatives’ home, alleged that her husband had been compromised, and therefore, warned her not to pursue the matter because it would bring disgrace to their family.

“I noticed an unusual noise and movement in the bathroom. So out of curiosity, I went to check if everything was normal. To my amazement, it was a tenant in our house, an old man, having sex with my daughter. I asked my daughter what happened, she said the old man had been raping her for some months and had threatened to kill her if she told anybody about it, that was why she did not tell me,” she said.

Ezukamma alleged that her husband collected money and asked her to do the same, and her travail started when she refused, insisting that she would get justice for her daughter. She said the family chased her and took away her teenage daughters from her for insisting on bringing disgrace to the family and reporting the matter to a child rights organisation, after the matter was reported at a police station.

Preliminary reports from Iyi-Enu Mission Hospital, Ogidi, where the child was taken to on August 4 and examined, showed that there was penetration. The document signed by Dr Madubuike Chinelo said the history was sturdily suggestive of sexual abuse.

“The episode had happened up to five times prior to the most recent encounter. The examination done in the presence of a chaperon showed there was hyperemia of the vaginal mucosa, no obvious vaginal discharge, and a hymen that had already been tampered with, the client was placed on some drugs for the vaginitis,” it stated.

Child Right Brigade International (CRIB), an NGO, said the matter was reported to its office on August 12. CRIB vowed to resist any cover-up and would ensure that the suspect was charged to court and prosecuted.

Obiora Nnaemeka, coordinator of CRIB in Anambra, said the information the organisation gathered was that the father of the victim, Mr Alex Ezukamma, collected some money to strike out the case from the police.

Nnaemeka said CRIB had written the Divisional Police Officer at Ogidi station to effect the arrest of the suspect and the father of the child, and bring up the matter for investigation and prosecution. He said this would serve as a deterrent to other would-be offenders and stem the tide of rising rape and pedophilia in society.

On his part, the father of the victim confirmed to newsmen that his daughter was raped and that the man had been arrested, detained, and granted bail. He added that the suspect had also been warned not to return to the house.

Ezukamma denied collecting any form of gratification for his raped daughter, saying though he was a pagan, he would never touch such money but would prefer to do some cleansing.

He said his family was not in support of the wife’s push for prosecution because of the shame it would bring to the family and the stigma it would leave on his daughter.

“She disobeyed me, and my elders and junior ones’ order not to drag our family name into the mud, and the shame it will bring to us and our daughter. That is why I asked her to leave my house. My wife can go to any length she wishes, but our name must not be involved,” he said.

When contacted, CSP Remigus Ekuri, DPO, Ogidi, confirmed the incident and said the matter would be charged to court as soon as the medical report was available.

This is one of the reasons most rape victims and their families don't open up to rape cases in Nigeria.

It is the duty of the government to help in this scenario. Provide shelter and assistant for this family.

That man must be arrested, including the husband and his family, I know of a case whereby a girl was raped, he was pardoned and just last year, the man raped 1 of his daughters.

The girl he previously raped life was tarnished, she went to the streets and became a sex worker

Wow, I haven't seen such a naive husband like this guy in awhile, how can u evict your own wife from your home because she is determined to pursue justice for her daughter that was molested by a he goat, no no this man can't be from our Anambra state, maybe his great grandparents migrated from Zimbabwea... There is no other way to aid this rapist then to keep secret of thier activities and there is no sane way of getting justice without involvement of government, even if the man wanted to kill the idiot that reap his daughter, he will still get himself into a bigger problem with the law, we are in 21 century and so most be civil in pursuit of justice.. He even said she disrespected his elderly and family members by going public. As if they went through labor pains with her...

Try to reason from the husbands angle.
Remember there are three sides to a story, I don't believe the woman's accusation that the husband took bribe from the rapist ( especially an allegation from Christians that are known Liars than a statement from a traditional worshipper that knows the implications of lies and injustice). The man is just trying to safe guard his daughters image and future and avoid making life a living hell for her. I believe he has his own way of getting justice because if not I'll say he is a slowpoke, a big fool and a fellow pedophile.
The woman is just a disobedient and stubborn wife, now the whole world has known that her daughter of 8 years old likes having sex with an old pedophile, though it's constitutionally rape but the way it's reported it sounds as if the girl was coerced and she enjoys the act.
She should have been smart and meet the necessary authorities to get justice without her name, family or that of daughter appearing in news like this. Now, the innocent girl will have to live with the stigma for the rest of her life.
This is why I advise women that no matter the anger, I know we are humans and sometimes our emotions get ahead of us not to publicize it to irrelevant people, meet the necessary authorities and remind them to handle it without publicizing your family or daughters name to avoid stigma.
