The police in Lagos have arrested an alleged pedophile, Chinedum Udeaba
for his failure to control his libido and eventual defilement of a
four-year old girl, (names with held) daughter of his co-tenant of 6,
Niyi close, Ojo, Lagos.
Udeaba, who was caught after having canal knowledge of the little girl,
feigned it was a mistake and was quick to blame Satan for leading him to
commit such heinous crime. He, however, admitted that he never
“penetrated through the young girl but ejaculated on her pubic zone.”
The shocking incident occurred penultimate Thursday when the little girl
“came to my room. I joined her in the process and suddenly I had an
erection. Then I carried her on my penis, but I did not penetrate her
virgina because it was tight. Rather, I ejaculated in the pubic area and
her laps. Thereafter, I gave her twenty Naira (N20.00) to buy biscuits.”
The N20 gift to the innocent girl after the illicit affair later
provided the lead and suspicion which exposed the harm. The money caught
her mother’s attention. She was shocked by what she saw and heard and
consequently alerted their neigbours.
“ When she came out of my room with the N20. In her hand and the semen
dripping down her lags, on enquiry, she explained to her mother what
transpired while she was in my room. The mother raised alarm that
attracted neighbour. It was indeed a great mistake, Devil pushed me to
RAPED BY HER FATHER - 17-year-old recounts her ordeal
By JULIANA FRANCIS
17-year-old girl stunned policemen at the Sabo Division in Lagos when
she walked into the station to claim that her father raped her on
Grace, 17, claimed her ordeal started last year, when her father accused
her of dating the leader of the youths section in her church. She simply
gave the name of her father as Mr. Mba.
"He said I was dating my church member. He stripped me naked and beat
me. He put pepper into my vagina. The next day, he took me to a house
with many rooms and beds. He asked me to undress, I refused.
“He slapped me. I removed my clothes. He pushed me down on the bed. I
tried to shout but he closed my mouth. He inserted a candlestick into my
private part. Later, he removed it and laid on me. He started doing it."
She said the father defiled her severally.
Tired of incessant rape by her father, Grace, 17, walked into the police
station and told policemen the horror she had been going through.
She said: "I have two sisters, Comfort, 9 and Mary, 2. I fear that when
they grow older, he would rape them. I have to stop him."
But being raped was nothing new to the Junior Secondary School (JSS 11)
student. She was 16-year-old when she was raped by her step-father’s
younger brother at Aba.
According to her, she was on a sickbed and on drip on the day the man
raped her. She complained to her mother, who told her husband and the
man was sent packing from the house.
Right from the time she was born, Grace had never had an easy life. She
revealed to Daily Sun how a love affair, which started in school between
her mother and father, resulted in her birth. According to her, her
mother started taking care of them after her father disappeared. The
woman later got married to one Mr. Obasi at Aba. She also explained that
she had a lovely life when Obasi came into their lives but that soon
changed when Mba stormed the house, harassed Obasi and demanded his
As soon as Grace got to Lagos and started attending a church, her father
accused her of dating a church member.
The last straw that broke the camel’s back and forced Grace to seek
solace at the Sabo police station happened on August 16, when the man
allegedly raped her again.
On that fateful day, Mba’s wife complained of missing money. According
to Grace, that was the second time money was missing in the house. The
first was N120 and the second one was N60. Mba had immediately suspected
Grace and vowed to teach her a lesson.
She recalled how he took her out that same night, telling her he was
taking her to be questioned by his brother, Paul. When Grace noticed the
route was not the usual one to Paul’s house, she protested but Mba told
her that Paul had moved to a new house.
She said: "We got to a house and met a woman. She gave him a key and
tissue. He took me into a room and asked me to undress, adding that I
stole the money. All my life, I have never stolen. I refused to pull off
my clothes. He ordered me to lie down, I refused and he slapped me. He
covered my mouth and pulled off his clothes. He laid on me and started
doing it! Later, he ordered me not to tell anybody."
On August 26, Grace wrote a letter, threatening her father that she was
going to the police. She ran away from home to Yaba and was taken home
by a pastor who she narrated her ordeal to. She spent the night with the
On August, 27, Grace walked into the police station and opened a can of
worms. Mba had since been on the run but detectives said they are on his
When Daily Sun asked Grace why she never told her mother and step-mother
of her father’s abuse, she said: "They would not believe me. Look, even
now, some of the policemen don’t believe me."
Grace’s step-mother was said to have told the police that most nights,
Mba used to take the girl out and returned late. And whenever he was
questioned, Mba would flare up, saying he could take his daughter
anywhere he chose.
