A 27-year old lady, Miss Chinenyenwa Ozulumba, has cried out for justice following an alleged rape of her seven year old daughter.
The single mother who narrated her ordeal to reporters in Awka at the weekend accused one Chidimma Ezeokoli (aged 23) and his 11-year-old teenage brother (name withheld) of repeatedly having unlawful carnal knowledge of her seven-year-old doughter in Oko, in the Aguata Council of Anambra.
The two suspects were said to be two biological children of her landlady, Mrs Nnabuife Okoli who she lives her daughter in their custody, because of the nature of her work as a bar attendant until the dastardly act.
According to her, on Aug. 22, the day that she did not go to work, she overheard her children making jokes of their escapades whenever she was away and after a while, her daughter began to cry in guilt.
Ozulumba said when she asked her daughter what the matter was, she told her that she and the sons of the landlady used to have sex.
“A 23-year-old boy and an 11-year-old boy have allegedly been defiling my daughter; when I got to know about it, I reported to their mother and she did not show any form of amazement or remorse, making me feel that she was aware of it.
“At that point, I took my daughter inside and sent for the younger boy who confirmed to me that it was true that he was having sex with my daughter in front of his elder sister.
“The minor recalled that there was a day they were having sex with my daughter and she was crying but their mother did not react to her anguish.
“When Chidinma heard that I am now aware of the rape going on with my daughter, he started threatening to beat me up, asking if I did not do it while growing up.
At that point, their mother joined in threatening violence against me and my daughter.
“That was how they started threatening to beat my child and even take her to a shrine if she dares to include the name of the 23-year-old again, telling her to say that it was only the 11-year-old that slept with her” she said.
Ozulumba said that since she noticed the violation of her daughter, she had visited the Police severally, as well as the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital (COOUTH), Awka , which examined the victim for the first time.
