Heartbreaking Recount of a SS1 Student Subjected to Sexual Abuse Will Make You Sceptical of Pastors

A Senior Secondary School 1, SS1 student, has narrated how she has been subjected to sexual abuse since she was 10 years old, by a pastor at the Ikotun-Egbe branch of a popular new generation Pentecostal church in Lagos.

The 16-year-old victim, who spoke from the hospital bed alleged that the suspect, with the connivance of a medical doctor, had carried out four abortions on her without her consent.

According to Vanguard, trouble started for the teenager after the untimely death of her parents six years ago.

An uncle, she identified simply as George, took her to Delta State from where the suspect, who had just been separated from his wife, took her to Lagos to look after his child, with a promise to train her in school. That was when he allegedly started a sexual relationship with her in his three-bedroom flat at 6, Dolamo Street, Agodo-Egbe.

The teen alleged that whenever he wanted to have sexual intercourse with her, he would invite her to his bedroom and offer her some drugs after which she would lose her memory.

According to her:

”He usually invited me to bring water to his room at night. Thereafter, he would give me some drugs. But when I summoned courage to ask him one day, he said that the drugs was to make me sexually active.

I have waited for this day when I would be free from his claws. The first time I opened up to our branch’s Senior Pastor and his wife, I was hushed. They even said I wanted to tarnish my guardian’s image, despite all he had done to keep me in school.

Again, I reported the sexual molestation to some of my school teachers, but they said they did not know how to go about it and how to prove my claim. They were even afraid that I could be driven away from the house and that it would mean the end of my education.

This is my fourth pregnancy he has aborted. When he took me to the doctor that has been carrying out the abortion on me, the doctor refused, saying he had been doing it right from when I was 10 years.

The doctor opened up to me that there could be complications if the pregnancy was terminated. “He took me to another place that looked like a laboratory on Monday, where I was laid on a slab. I begged the doctor not to do anything, but they pinned me down and the doctor induced me to sleep.

When I woke up, I discovered that they had flushed out the pregnancy.”

She added that when they got home that night, the suspect attempted to sleep with her again, but she refused, adding that the next day (Tuesday), she packed her belongings out of the house and headed for school where she intended to be living.

” It was while heading to the school  that she slumped, bleeding from her private part. Sympathisers rushed her to a hospital along Isolo-Mushin Road, where it was discovered that the abortion was not properly done.

The hospital bed I laid on was soaked with blood. The attention of a church member, who is also a family friend of my guardian, was invited. When the result of the scan came out, it revealed that the abortion was not properly done.”

Speaking further, a nurse at the hospital, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that the teenager was in a stable condition. Meanwhile, her guardian, who she calls Daddy, has been arrested by policemen at Area ‘M’ and has admitted to the girl’s claims.

Investigations, according to police sources, are still ongoing.
