My heart bleeds each time I hear and read about stories of little kids who should be on the path to life’s discovery but are now hooked on sex. In case you don’t know the age for sexual initiation in Nigeria is now 6 years old. There are under aged kids who have become more exposed to sexual adventures than adults. Child pornography is on the increase. I will bring you one of such stories that occurred a few weeks ago here in Nigeria in our subsequent posts. The question is: “How sure are you that your child or sibling is not hooked already?” Alot happen in schools.. Alot happen when you are out on the streets striving to make ends meet? This is not to make you suspicious towards anyone but to awaken your discernment. NEVER EVER ASSUME!
“An 11-year old girl who was a victim of sexual abuse (name withheld) stunned the police in Lagos State, southwest Nigeria, when she confessed that she enjoyed having sex with their neighbour, Adams Oliyide, who allegedly defiled her on many occasions. The victim told the police that she did not tell anyone, including her parents, because she enjoyed having sex with the suspect. The victim, who opened up to the police, when she was asked why she did not report the sexual assault to her parents, said whenever Oliyide invited her to his one room apartment, she always sneaked in and allowed him to have sex with her because she enjoyed it.
The incident happened in Iyana Ipaja Lagos State Southwest Nigeria. The suspect from Ogun State, Southwest Nigeria, used to sneak back home from work in the afternoon when the parents of the victim had gone to work to have carnal knowledge of the victim. It was alleged that after having sex with her, he would give her money to buy food, sweets or biscuits and warned her not to tell anybody. This went on for months until they were caught by their neighbour who raised an alarm and contacted the victim’s parents. When the suspect was arrested, he was taken to Oke Odo Police Division, where he allegedly confessed that he had sex with the girl on many occasions.
The victim also confessed to the police that the 20-year old suspect had sex with her on many occasions but did not to tell her parents because she loved him. But the police insisted that Oliyide committed rape because the victim was an under age.
He was therefore charged with rape at Ikeja Magistrate’s Court sitting in Abule Egba under Section 137 Of the Criminal Code Law of Lagos State of Nigeria 2011. The suspect pleaded not guilty to the charge and the presiding magistrate, Mr. A.O. Komolafe, granted him bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.
The court also ordered that one of the sureties must be a blood relation and the sureties must show evidence of payment of taxes. The matter has been adjourned till 3 September, 2012.”
QUESTION: HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR CHILD OR SIBLING?
It’s high time you started getting friendly with your kids, that’s the only way they can start telling you the secrets they tell only to their friends.
