10 year old rape victim dies port harcourt

Monday July 18, 2016 – 10-Year-old Rape Victim Dies In Port Harcourt Hospital, Alleged Rapist Arrested

A young girl allegedly defiled by a kiosk owner in PH, Rivers state has died of her injuries days.

The 10-year-old child allegedly rape by a man identified as Mallam Bashir in Rumuibekwe area of Port Harcourt earlier this week died in a private hospital after doctors battled to save her life for days.

Following the incident, the Rivers State chapter of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) and International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) have embarked on a campaign for Bashir not to be granted bail until he is tried.

The state chairperson of NAWOJ, Mrs. Lillian Okonkwo, alleged that friends and relatives of Bashir had been making efforts to get him out on bail. Okonkwo said that the police were initially reluctant to arrest Bashir until NAWOJ and FIDA mounted pressure on them.

She said:

“It is unfortunate that she died. But we are appealing that the bail being sought by the relatives of Bashir should not be granted.”

Okonkwo also appealed to Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. Ipalebo Banigo-Harry, and the governor’s wife, Justice Suzette Wike, to intervene in the matter as women.

  1. Bastard rape 10 ys gal and die from it, now familie and friends want to bail him and run away to north ,like yellow ko.but why cant u rape or marry ur own people, u do child marraige their,why other people kids.now the 10ys die plus rape, is nothing less than 60 ys in prison.

  2. They should bail him for what? For raping a minor with that his uncircumcised rod, never! He should remain in jail. All these Hausas no get shame at all! Just imagine the pain he subjected that little girl to before her death. Rest in peace little girl.

  3. A man engaging in raping a minor is not a man to me. He Is a coward. Thank God he was caught. Let him be tried in the court of law for “MURDER and RAPE of a minor” and sentence to life imprisonment or be killed so that this can serve as a deterrence to other sexual predators who only prey on the minor to satisfy their immoral sexual craving.

  4. What is dis country turning into, the govt needs to pass on death sentence to whomever dat rapes. Maybe by so doing dis useless people will av to stop d dastardly act.

    And parents especially mothers pls look after ur children, teach them sex education, let them knw were to go and were not to go, who they shouldn’t be talking to. When u send them on errands that shld be like 2mins, if they did not return on time go and look for them. Let’s not be careless bcos there are a lot of devourers out there.
    I wish dis baboon will be castrated immediately, no mercy.

  5. Imagine d family tryg to bail him, now its a murder case I want to believe murderers cannot be granted bail, if so then let him face trial and sentenced immediately.

    I am really angry now, d Nigeria system is so bad that rape is now on d rise and criminals are in full swing, what is our govt doing. Pls we need to knw what judgement will be passed here. Enough is enough.

  6. People are really wicked ooo. Why are the relatives appealing for his bail? Does it mean that they don’t know the gravity of his crime? To me, he should be sentenced to death by hanging. He’s an animal and as such needs to be treated like one.

  7. Why didn‘t they burn him to ashes the moment he committed the rape crime? And lets see how his dumb, senseless family will come justling for his bail.
    “I tire for my Naija people sef“

    Personally, I dont encourge Jungle Justice but at times, its really the best option. Its painful that when where and on whom they are surposed to met it out to, they will not and go ahead to met it out to innocent people.
    Otherwise, this NAMA won‘t have have access to oxygen anymore.

    Any body who come for his bail should be jailed himself, Nonesense!

    If it were a Christian man that did this to a muslim damsel, the muslims in that community would have gone to the skys and pull down the Moon and the Sun just to show their grievances. Let alone talking about bailing of the culprit. Chai….

    Smh…

  8. Haha this man should be given death sentence or face firing execution without any other alternatives.This is so barbaric behaviour and he needs to face the penalty

  9. This is so . sympathetic to hear this man should die in prison without any trial initially in any court, they should have taking the law in to their hand in the first instance but by reporting to police yu are taken it too long sooner or later they will release him and he will walk away only God can safe us in Nigeria of today Rip

  10. Castrate the bastardious baboon, cut away his manhood n feed it to d dogs.. Then let him go. its better than being in prison where you will be fed freely n make new friends… Rubbish!

    RIP to the deceased n condolences to d FAF!
