A middle-aged man has been allegedly caught molesting an 11-years old minor inside a tricycle, popularly known as Keke Napep.
An eyewitness report revealed that the minor was molested while onboard.
According to a popular Nigerian lawyer, Ali Fadeela who shared the report via her Instagram handle, the man was caught moving his hands around the tighs of the teenage girl.
She said she raised an alarm but had to let go off the man as passersby were pleading on his behalf.
While sharing the post on her handle, Ali Fadeela said in her words, Ali Fadeela wrote; “For the first time in a long time, I remembered why I studied law. my heart is so pained right now. I have always heard about adults sexually assaulting children but today I witness one that the thought of it still lingers and would for a long time.
The cruelty of human beings is crazy. I entered Keke today and saw this man whose picture u see, touching an 11-year-old girl on school uniform. At first, I noticed him adjusting himself every now and then and she had this look of disgust on her face so I observed more and saw this paedophile mistake of a man rubbing his hands on her lap and when she moves he quickly puts his hand back in his pocket.
So I asked her if he was disturbing her and she confirmed it, now I didn’t have to bcos I saw it with my eyes but I wanted to be sure she knew what was being done to her… I dragged him out, tried to drag his sorry ass to the police and he started begging but I am more pained that I couldn’t do more. People gathered and where begging to let him go and for some reason I did but I feel I owed it to the girl and others like her to do more… we are all responsible for the children in this world whether or not we are related by blood or religion or tribe.
Every girl child or even adult should know that they have the absolute right over their body. I saw a scared girl who couldn’t raise her voice and I know there are so many out there in her shoes. We should teach our children, sisters, friends, neighbours, wards to always raise an alarm when put in that position. We should be observant of what goes on around us especially where u have children involved.
And though I couldn’t do more but we should all endeavour to do more.. keeping quiet is never the answer to abuse… paedophiles are sick heartless creatures and should be treated as such..
p.s. i am sharing the picture of this man because I want anybody that sees him to give him a hot slap on behalf of that child and every other child he must have tried to assault. Let’s be our brother’s keepers.”
