12 year old allegedly raped by 40-year-old man gives birth in Edo (photo)
A 12 year old girl, Ilobekeme Omije, who was allegedly raped by her 40-year-old neighbor in Edo state has welcomed a baby.
The little girl is currently at the Irrua Specialist Hospital where she gave birth to her baby girl through CS yesterday Friday, October 11th.
In a chat with LIB, activist Harrison Gwamnishu said the little girl lost her dad years ago and was sent to live with a Pastor of a renowned church by her mother who died recently and is still in the mortuary. At age 6, she was raped by the pastor and was later sent to live with a traditional healer who continued to rape her.
She currently lives with her aunt where a 40-year-old neighbour raped her and got her pregnant. She welcomed her baby and is still in the hospital where doctors are monitoring her condition.
Harrison who visited the girl today, said the pastor, the herbalist and the 40 year old man were all arrested in September by officials of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons but released after they all agreed to pay N5000 monthly.
