“We observed the boy’s attitudinal changes for two days. Upon closer observation, we discovered that he was unable to eat and moved from one place to another like he usually did. We then asked him what was happening and after sometime, he told us what really happened to him.”
Umar added that the rapist’s family begged to sweep the case under the carpet, but they didn’t yield to their demands due to the sensitivity of the case.
“The family of the rapist visited us and begged us to forgive their brother, but we looked at the critical situation the child is in, and then decided to forward the case to a human rights organisation to fight for the child’s right.”
Coordinator of the NGO, Hajiya Rabi Salihu, said the increasing report of rape at Maraban Jos in Kaduna was becoming worrisome because of the abject poverty in the area. He disclosed that the case had been filed in court and they would do everything possible to ensure justice prevails.
