thrown into prison. I feel pained that a man I
called my father used me many times to satisfy
his sexual urge.”
The 12-year-old continued: “He started sleeping
with me in 2015. The first time he did it, I was in
my room reading when he came in. He asked me
the kind of school I would like to go. Then he
came close to me.
“When I stood up to go, he asked me to wait and
started touching me all over my body. I asked
him what he was doing but he told me to keep
quiet and immediately pushed me into the bed.
“He tied my hands backwards. When he saw
that I was shouting, he covered my mouth with
his hand, He started doing it increasingly from
that time. I always cried and begged him to leave

that day, I started bleeding because he didn’t
abort the pregnancy completely. I was taken
back to Otu-Aba on December 5 and from there,
we went to Otu-Asiga to flush the remaining
“I discovered later that my body system had been
messed up. I noticed I was no longer
menstruating. It was just recently that I was
taken to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC)
where an operation was done on me with
something like a container inserted into me.
They called it a minor operation. I went back to
FMC on Thursday to remove the container.
“I feel very bad. I want the police oga (police
boss) to put him in prison. He has been doing
similar things to many people,” Queen narrated.
