Former Member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Omosedei Igbinedion has taken to her social media page to share the sad story of a 6-year-old orphan who was raped and is yet to get justice.
According to Omosedei, the family of the rapist offered the victim’s guardian the sum of Two Hundred Thousand Naira to drop the case and the police are advising the guardian to take it.
Sharing a photo of the victim, Hon. Omosedei wrote ;
This is the little 6 year old girl who was raped by a 22 year old guy, her biological father is nowhere to be found since her mother passed away. She has been adopted by her Mums sister and her husband.
Her Father is a Keke driver who complained to the Police about his daughter being raped and was basically told that he is just an “ordinary keke driver” and should take the N200,000 being offered to him and let the case end there. Which of course he refused to do.
I met with the young girl yesterday and she is such a delight, she has this really electrifying smile, that I had to share with you. She is a very intelligent child, full of happiness and laughter. Her Dad did mention however that in the immediate aftermath of the incident she was severely traumatised.
She is very much aware that something happened to her. I pray time and love will heal her and also I promise to ensure that justice is served.
