“My father wanted to kill me ”: 14-Year-Old Cries Out after 7 Years of Abuse

Published

on

An Ekiti State-born bricklayer, 45-year-old Elijah Olusesi, was apprehended by members of the O’odua Peoples Congress (OPC) for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his 14-year old daughter since she was seven. This took place at Adiyan, a community in Ifo Local Government, Ogun State.

Elijah’s wife (Shade) had reportedly fled to Adiyan when the purported act between her husband and their daughter started. He was subsequently banished from the community, after he allegedly confessed to the crime, and he was paraded for all members of the community by the OPC.

Shade claimed to have reported the incident to her in-laws when she caught her husband in the act with their daughter, but was begged. She also told the community that her husband equally begged her and promised that he will not repeat the shameful act again, noting that to her surprise, she found out that whenever she was not at home, her husband would continue the act with their daughter.

Elijah had been exposed when his daughter ran out naked in the middle of the night and was held by security men protecting the community. After interrogation, the 14-year old girl confessed she ran out naked because her father wanted to kill her with sex.

According to her “I ran out when my father wanted to kill me with sex. He has been having sexual intercourse with me since I was seven years old and my mother knew about it. My mother and I ran away from him to come and hide here but we don’t know how he was able to trace us down here.”

    The mother is partly to blame. If after reporting to her in-laws and nothing changed,she should have gone to the community elders or police. May God wipe out evil people like him. Such people should be killed or they’ll stain our generation!

    Nigerians are coming. If we don’t repent soon there will be holy wedluck between fathers and daughters or between mothers and sons. Yet it is not a crime in nigeria constitution even to sleep with a 7 year old girl or daughter and the parliament have no time for that but for the monies they will steal into their pockets. OPC is now DPP. (director of public prosecution) Wonders will not end yet. Inspite of all the religious messages bombing on radios,tv, buses and everywhere yet,evil is still at the peak. May God deliver His people.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example

Published

on

Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.

Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.

The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.

With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.

Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.

Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.

Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’

To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.

With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
