An 11-year-old girl who was impregnated by her aunt’s husband has been left to fend for herself and her unborn child in her community of Orokam, Ogbadibo Local Government Area, Benue state.
It should be noted that the suspect, Joseph Adoyi, a security guard at Benue State University, was apprehended by police a few months ago.
Since she was three years old, the victim was alleged to have lived with Adoyi and his wife in Makurdi’s North Bank neighborhood.
If the woman notified her aunt, Adoyi allegedly threatened to kill her.
Andrew Obeya Adaudu took to Facebook on Wednesday, December 29, to expose the minor’s dilemma and ask for assistance as she approaches her due date.
“Sometime this year, this little girl of 11 years (Victoria) was allegedly impregnated by her aunt’s husband in Makurdi and she was sent home to fend for herself and her unborn child
“She comes from a humble background and can barely feed herself or attend any antenatal services. She hasn’t been able to visit any clinic since all these started (except when it was initially detected in Makurdi)
“From the look of things, she will be due any time soon? There is just no way this girl can have a normal delivery since her features aren’t fully developed to go through that stress
“She is from Orokam, Ogbadibo local government of Benue state. I have resolved not to tow the path of the law, since they had gone through that route and it does not look like the Police and the relevant agencies are willing to cooperate with her parents, and I currently do not have the luxury of time to be whipping the law around.
“How do we support this little girl to have a safe delivery, rehabilitation and subsequently return to school.
