Yesterday, our attention was drawn to a case of a 15-year-old girl who was raped by seven able-bodied men in Issele-Uku.
The young girl had a problem with a woman in the neighborhood, and her son, one of the perpetrators whom she saw as a big uncle, called her to hear her side of the story. She arrived at about 7 p.m.
As she tried to explain what had happened to the man, he pulled her into a room where six of his friends were waiting, switched on the music, turned up the volume so that no one could hear their horrific act, and then turned on this young girl.
She had a 2° perineal tear, was bleeding profusely, and was in excruciating pain. Some locals took her to the community hospital, where she was diagnosed that hymen was torn jaggedly.
