A 13-year-old girl from Nasarawa state has just escaped death after being poisoned by her mother and left to die in General hospital, Nasarawa.
The teenager was reportedly raped and impregnated by her father, in a bid to get rid of the pregnancy and cover up the shame, the mother poisoned her with concocted potion.
Fortunately, she survived but lost the baby
Meanwhile, a good Samaritan, Raheema, who revealed that the girl’s criminal minded parents have been arrested, has gone on Twitter to seek the help of humanitarian legal practitioners in the prosecution of the girl’s parents.
Expressing fear that the teenager may not get justice as the case may be brushed aside as family issue, Raheema called on the good people of Nigeria to stand against rape and other social ills.
Although the general hospital refused to reveal the girl’s identity and details of her predicament on the grounds that individuals cannot be trusted, they are however willing to speak with a Non Governmental Organisation that will take up the case and see that justice is served
Alhamdulillah the girl survived but lost the baby. She is currently in our General hospital here and both parent of hers have been arrested. My fear is that this girl will not get justice as it will be looked at as family issue which is why I am reaching out.
Evil is human
