”We are a human rights group and we are seeking for nothing but justice for the poor girl. This a copy of a petition we addressed to the Imo state Commissioner of Police, urging him to help us and the society get justice for this poor, voiceless and helpless girl who was defiled and impregnated by her madam’s two grown-up sons.
“The two grown up sons are, Chigozie Emegha who is married with three daughters and Promise Emegha, who just finished his secondary school education. They hail from Imerienwe in Ngor Okpala Local Government Area of Imo state.
“The defilement has left the girl who has no father but a poor mother and seven siblings with a set of twins. She was delivered of a set of twins (a boy and a girl) on April 19, 2021, at a health Centre in Ubomiri in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo state.
“The poor girl was sent packing by her madam immediately she realized that the girl had become pregnant as a result of defilement by her two sons. The girl and her newly born twins are helpless except the little our organization is doing to assist them.
“We passionately appeal to the Imo CP in the interest of the welfare of these newly born twins to give them and their little mother justice. We are ready to provide this girl anything the office of the CP needs, in the course of the investigation.
“As a human rights movement that believes in justice, we are also ready to help the CP’s office to ensure that the poor girl and her twins get justice.”
The defiled girl told journalists, that her madam’s two grown-up sons defiled her separately within 48 hours in 2020 and her madam sent her packing after she realized that her body shape had changed and her breasts were becoming bigger. ”She knows that her sons slept with me; I told her, and her eldest son who is a pastor caught Chigozie, the first day he was forcefully sleeping with me.”
When contacted, the police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, said that the command would swiftly act on the petition once it is received.
The police spokesperson said “the state Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, had zero tolerance for crimes. But be rest assured that the CP will expediently work on the petition once it is received. Defilement is a serious crime in our laws and be assured again that the CP will do justice to the petition once it is received.”
