Parents Marry 14-Year-Old Daughter Off To Middle Aged Man Who Raped & Got Her Pregnant

By Chisimdi Nzotta

A 14-year-old girl has been allegedly married off by her parents to a man who raped and got her pregnant.

Narrating the story on Twitter, Fateemah wrote;

I am angry right now.

Yesterday, I heard a disturbing news that a fifty-something years old Imam raped a 14-year-old, accepted that he raped her and bragged that nothing will happen to him.

When I spoke with the mother around 5.0 clock yesterday, she was crying and asking for justice, that she needs help. I called people and we tried to fix an early appointment for her.

What was I told when I called back? He is now her husband.

I was told that it’s now a family issue and the parents have given their consent for the Imam to marry their daughter! a 14 years old girl and that’s because she is pregnant.

I tried to explain that she is a minor and that it is illegal for her to get married.

I tried to explain that rape has psychological effects but it all fell on deaf ears. Her parents do not want everyone talking about her.

So tell me, how do we fight this menace? @advocacy4humanv

Same thing that happened once in Akoko-Edo LGA of Edo State when I was there for a conference. The family wants justice this minute and there next minute they’re smiling with the perpetrator’s parents because they’ve settled them with a certain amount of money.

Hence you find yourself making fruitless effort to make them appear in court for their testimonies. It’s really sad.

I’ve informed the commissioner of police. Fixed appointment with the state ministry of women affairs. We are getting there. I will let you know how it goes.
