Imam marries a 14 yr old girl after raping and impregnating her
imam, 14 yr old girl, raping
An Imam of over 50 years old has reportedly married a 14 year old girl after he raped and impregnated. This report is coming from a twitter user who said the Imam even bragged that nothing can happen to him for his actions against the young girl. Tweets below.
I was told that it’s now a family issue and the parents have given their consent for the Imam to marry their daughter ! a 14 years old girl and that’s because she is pregnant. I tried to explain that she is a minor and that it is illegal for her to get married.
I tried to explain that rape has psychological effects but it all fell on deaf hears . Her parent do not want everyone talking about her. So tell me, how do we fight this menace ?
Same thing that happened once in Akoko-Edo LGA of Edo State when I was there for conference . The family wants justice this minute and there next minute they’re smiling with the perpetrator’s parents because they’ve settled them with a certain amount of money.
Hence you find yourself making fruitless effort to make them appear in court for their testimonies. It’s really sad.
I’ve informed the commisioner of police. Fixed appointment with the state ministry of women affairs. We are getting there. I will let you know how it goes”.
