17-year-old Ogechukwu, pictured right, accused her sister's boyfriend of raping her and getting her pregnant sometime in April this year. Ogechukwu's plight was brought to the public by the president of Behind Bars Initiative, Prince Harrison Gwamnishu. LIB reached out to Gwamnishu for details of the case and here is what he told us.
Ogechukwu moved to Lagos last year to live with her sister in the Ojo
area of the state. Ogechukwu's sister sells clothes but also pimps
girls for some men in the area. The sister allegedly always wanted to
introduce her into her line of business but she couldn't because
Ogechukwu was a virgin.
While celebrating her birthday in April this
year, Ogechukwu said her sister gave her a glass of soft drink to take.
She did not know that the drink had been mixed with a substance that
would make her sleep. The next day, she woke up to see blood on her
private part with her sister and her boyfriend around her. Ogechukwu
said her sister told her that there is no big deal in her losing her
Ogechukwu, who is an indigene of Anambra state, left the sister's
place in anger and went to her brother's home in Asaba where she
informed him of what her older sister and boyfriend had done to her.
Weeks later, Ogechuku discovered she was pregnant. She picked up a job
as a teacher to support herself. Last Thursday, October 12th, her
employer complained that over N60,000 was missing. Ogechukwu and two
other persons were arrested. The other persons were able to bail
themselves but Ogechukwu who couldn't afford the N15, 000 bail was
remanded in the cell.
Prince Harrison was at the station yesterday for another matter when
he met the pregnant teenager. After hearing her story, he facilitated
her release from police custody. Ogechukwu and her brother would be in
Lagos soon to report the matter to the police and take legal action
against her sister and her boyfriend.
