Two sisters aged 3 and 5 years old are currently receiving medical attention in a hospital in Imo state after they were allegedly raped on the same day by a 17-year-old neighbour in their compound on Oji roundabout on Wednesday, March 20th.
Activist and leader of the Behind Bar Initiative Harrison Gwamnishu, who shared the story online, said there was deep penetration as the 3years old can’t walk properly. According to him, the family members of the suspected rapist paid the victims parents ₦15,000 for hospital treatment and another ₦2000 for feeding. The victims’ parents accepted the money as a settlement.
Gwamnishu in a chat with LIB said
”The mother of the victims usually fries Akara while the father is a bricklayer. The mother of the girls usually drops them at her neighbour’s house. It was the neighbour’s 17-year-old son that had sex with the girls. The three-year-old was badly affected as she couldn’t walk properly after the sexual intercourse”.
He said the matter had not been reported to the police by the victims’ family. Gwamnishu said his team will make a formal report to the police today while the victims will be transferred to the Federal Medical Center in Owerri for proper medical care.
