In one of the most shocking sexual assault cases in Nigeria in recent times, reports say a ten year old female child has been caught having sex with four men in an uncompleted building at old Kwata of Suleja.
The minor, said to be sachet water seller meets men daily who in turn pay her a pitiable sum of N100 or N200 to have sex with them, police reports say.
This, she does to care of her parents and younger siblings.
In a chat with The Authority, the little girl disclosed that she started sleeping with men at age 8.
“I started sleeping with men when I was eight years old. I use the money they give me and the one I get from my pure water business to sustain my parents and two siblings,” she said.
When asked how often she meets the men, she said it was on daily basis and returns home at 10pm. “I don’t sleep outside my home,” she added.
The police source who said the matter is still under investigation said “the little girl chose to engage herself into such act.” – “She was not forced as we thought when we arrested them. It was during interrogation that it became clear to us that they had her based on her agreement with the four men.”
This is just so heartbreaking… What does a little child know? A minor having sex? certainly some sort of manipulation and influence come into the equation! Parents need to step up and let kids be kids, don’t take away their innocence. Step up to your responsibilities!
