15-Year-Old Boy Who Raped 4-Year-Old Girl In Ebonyi Freed Over Failure Of Family To Pay N4000


It has been learnt that a 15-year-old boy who raped a 4-year-old girl, named Jennifer Iteze, has been freed because the rape victim's family could not afford to pay the sum of N4,000 allegedly required to open the case file.

According to report, after the rape case of the 4-year-old girl was taken to the Ebonyi State’s Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, the Ministry’s Head of Department, Child Development, Godwin Igwe, revealed that Iteze was brought to his office, by the father alongside a consultant physician from the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, who confirmed the rape upon some medical examinations.

Jennifer’s father alleged that the rape act was perpetrated by one Ernest, the son of one of his co-tenants after he decided to look after the little girl and her two other siblings while he and their mother left for their different places of work, but on their return, they were shocked to discover that their daughter was having pains while urinating.

After asking her what happened, they were told by their daughter how Ernest came into their house while she was with her siblings and inserted his genital into her own. However following the inability of the family to pay N4,000 for a case file, the 15-year-old boy was freed by the police.

According to report, Iteze, who is a staff of the National Obstetric Fistula Centre, Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, has however called on the appropriate authorities to assist his family in bringing the culprit to justice, so as to serve as deterrent to others.
