“Promise me you will stay out of any more trouble. We were only saved by stroke of luck”.
He said nothing and got up to leave instead. I walked with him to the car.
“You don’t have to worry”, he assured me as he opened the door to the car. “I’m fine. I heard you loud and clear. There’s nothing to be agitated about. … More Part 2: The Recovery
Ada is a sixteen year old enthusiast who wanted to be a soloist with one of the big Nigerian record labels. She often gathered the other children together and make everyone join in on her singing competitions, knowing full well that none of the other children had the kind of sensational talents that she had. Onome, though a year younger than Ada, had her unique talent too which often confused even her parents. Onome is a good actress. She often dramatized her way out of any unwanted situation she found herself and her parents couldn’t tell it was all an act for years.
A conman had approached them individually, having watched them from afar for months. Different in talent they may be but they both had the same trait which is common to his other victims – desperate for fame. … More Protect me passionately
“My mother trusted too much. She trusted a pastor with alone with me when I was just 7 and the pastor molested me. I wanted to tell my mother but I hoped she would notice on her own that sometime was different about me but she couldn’t tell. When I told eventually told her, she only got angry that I could even think of such a lie and she shut me up without ever verifying my story”, she said to me. … More Child Prostitution & Internet Child Pornography
With a heavy heart, I write this every time. The other day, it was the issue of domestic violence that caught my attention on social media, today it is the issue of child rape. A daughter is the most precious, most delicate gift God ever gave the world. I don’t understand why evil minded perverted men will want to defy God’s precious gifts. Yesterday, it was the issue of a man in Adamawa state in Nigeria raping a 4 year old girl to death. The day before it was the issue of a so-called pastor defiling a 7 year old girl on the altar of a church in Oyo state? The day before that it was a man in Kano state raping and even, unbelievably, impregnating a 5 year old girl. However possible it is for a 5 year old to even get pregnant, I need a doctor to explain this to me because this has gone way beyond scary. What?! Seriously, what is wrong with the society now or should I just ask what the world is coming to.
I’m sure there are females your age who are willing to give you satisfaction in exchange for whatever. Why not approach those instead? Anything at all but not raping a small innocent child. Please, for God’s sake STOP IT! Forget the stigma even, the trauma, the health implications for that child, the psychological effect and a host of others is more than enough to truncate the progressive development of that child. They might never even survive it. Then the parents have to face the stigma.
Mothers, I know it is unending the teachings of having to take extra care of your girl child but please, help them to be watchful, to be mindful at all times. I know it’s not easy, especially for the child who just wants to play and let loose, but unknowingly there’s a perverted man around the corner looking at her in an ungodly way. So how do you tell them to play like this or sit like that or be conscious like this? Too much to take in but that’s what the world has come to now. We need to teach them these things and help them be reminded of them always. Early sex education has automatically now become a necessity. Of course, there are levels to exposure and awareness per age group but you can seek a counselor’s help in knowing the right amount of sex education for your child’s age.
I am raising an awareness, calling on mothers, fathers, teachers, civil adults, responsible adults and the government to help us preserve our daughters. Save the daughters so we can benefit of a better tomorrow. … More Save the daughters
I have wanted to write on this subject since Tuesday but it’s not as pleasant to write about as it is to get the campaign against this out there.
A friend of mine sent me a video sometime in 2013. I love her but I couldn’t restrict myself from letting her know never to send me such videos ever again. She said she only meant to keep me informed and aware of the possible evils in the society. Don’t get me wrong, I never assumed we live in a sane world where everyone is considerate and human. But you see, I have a daughter and it became a nightmare to have watched that video, despising the effect of the content of that video on a little baby girl. I couldn’t sleep with my eyes closed for nights, watching over my daughter like an overprotective mother-hen, suspecting every move towards my daughter. God forbid I have to suspect my husband or her older brother. It was that worrisome. But I guess I was able to come out of that hole.
Such evil, no doubt has always been in the society. Mind you, there’s nothing new under the sun. But I suppose the effrontery and viral spread of this vile act has become even more rampant these days. Child abuse is nothing compare to this newness of low in our society. Men no longer find pleasure in the opposite site. Heck, not even with same sex. Now, they turn to children? Innocent little ones whom the Lord gifts us from the directly from His Throne of mercy.
I have a father, a husband and a son whom I love and adore so I won’t generalize men. There are others too who are sane and full of the fear of God.
This is a call to STOP CHILD RAPE. Please, give these babies a chance to grow and live normal, even extraordinary lives so they can be free to do exploits like the Bible say they are for.
I have said my piece.

Going through the Daily today, one of the things that caught my eyes was the issue of the man Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT) is tackling over 25-year wife abuse.
