Woman Who Reported Daughter's Rapist To Police Is Thrown Out By Husband

Ifeyinwa Ezukamma, a 40-year old mother of five has been chased out of her matrimonial home by her husband’s family, for insisting on justice for her 8-year-old daughter, raped by her tenant.

Ezukamma told newsmen that the incident took place in their country home, Ogidi, Idemili North Council Area of Anambra.

She said though she caught the suspect, who claimed to be 57 years old in the act on July 23, she claimed the man had been violating her daughter since March.

The woman, who had since packed to her relatives’ home, alleged that her husband had been compromised, and therefore warned her not to pursue the matter because it would bring disgrace to their family.

“I noticed an unusual noise and movement in the bathroom. So out of curiosity, I went to check if everything was normal, to my amazement, it was a tenant in our house, an old man was having sex with my daughter.

“I called my daughter and asked her what happened, she said the old man had been raping her for some months and had threatened to kill her if she told anybody about it, that was why she did not tell me,” she said.

Ezukamma alleged that her husband collected money and asked her to do the same, and her travail started when she refused, insisting that she would get justice for her daughter.

She said the family chased her and took away her teenage daughters from her for insisting on bringing disgrace to the family and reporting the matter to a child rights organisation, after the matter was reported at a police station.
“It was my insistence to pursue this matter that led to my husband and his family asking me to leave my matrimonial home, taking my children away from me.

“I said I will not collect money to stop pursuing justice for my little daughter that was raped,“ she said.

Preliminary reports from Iyi-Enu Mission Hospital, Ogidi, where the child was taken to on Aug. 4 and examined, showed that there was penetration, but noted that the private hospital where she was taken to on the date of the incident, did not carry out a physical examination of the child.
The document signed by Dr. Madubuike Chinelo said the history was sturdily suggestive of sexual abuse.

“The episode had happened up to five times prior to the most recent encounter.
“The examination done in the presence of a chaperon showed there was hyperemia of the vaginal mucosa, no obvious vaginal discharge, and a hymen, that had already been tampered with, the client was placed on some drugs for the vaginitis,” it stated.

Child Right Brigade International (CRIB), an NGO said the matter was reported to its office on Aug. 12.
CRIB vowed to resist any cover-up; and would ensure that the suspect was charged to court and prosecuted.

Obiora Nnaemeka, Coordinator of CRIB in Anambra, said the information the organisation gathered was that the father of the victim, Mr. Alex Ezukamma, collected some money to get strike out the case from the police.
Nnaemeka said CRIB had written the Divisional Police Officer at Ogidi Station to effect the arrest of the suspect and the father of the child, and bring up the matter for investigation and prosecution.

He said this would serve as a deterrent for other would-offenders and stem the tide of rising rape and pedophilia in the society
On his part, the father of the victim confirmed to newsmen that his daughter was raped and that the man had been arrested, detained, and granted bail.
He added that the suspect had also been warned not to return to the house.
Ezukamma denied collecting any form of gratification for his raped daughter, saying though he was a pagan, he would never touch such money but would prefer to do some cleansing.

He said his family was not in support of the wife’s push for prosecution because of the shame it would bring to the family and the stigma it would leave on his daughter.

“She disobeyed me, and my elders and junior ones order not to drag our family name into the mud, and the shame it will bring to us and our daughter, that is why I asked her to leave my house.
“My wife can go to any length she wishes, but our name must not be involved,” he said.

When contacted, CSP Remigus Ekuri, DPO, Ogidi, confirmed the incident and said the matter would be charged to court as soon as the medical report was available.

Madam you did the right thing,the problem now is that you have been thrown out and the kid will be exposed to more abuse...i weep for that child and for you!!!


  1. This is just heartbreaking.
    Useless archaic father.

  2. This is why so many women keep quiet, so that they do not loose both marriage and children.

    If it's only marriage that they will loose fine, but to lose children is unbearable.

    That rapist must be brought to book
    As for the husband, I leave him to God

  3. What is going on mbok? What is a 57 year old man doing with an 8yr old?/ why?

    Anyway, the Bible says in the end times, wickedness shall increase.

  4. Stupid foolish useless worthless sorry excuse for a father

  5. This broke my heart. Thank God she stood by her daughter. As for rapist, he has placed a curse on himself. It will never be well with him. The man that calls himself her father, shame on him.

  6. I'm proud of the woman for not keeping quiet. Her daughter will be grateful to her in future.

    I wish I could help out to ensure she gets justice and custody of her children. The husband is evil.

  7. The woman should leave that house of worms with her head held up high.
    The "teenage kids" taken away from her know whom their mother is and
    will seek her out.
    As long as she goes with the 8 year old and get justice if it is possible in
    Nigeria, that's fine.
    Shame on dudes and all who cover rape.

    1. Animal of a father, let the right authority take all the children from him and his yeye family.

  8. It’s situations like this that the public should raise money for NOT for evicted BBN participants.

      God Bless you for this comment .

    4. Spot on anon. The purpose for GoFundMe seems to have been defeated.

    5. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

      If you talk, they will say is it your money? Go and start one for those that need it. Smh

    6. Exactly anon. The Gofundme is now becoming a child's play

  9. The father is probably a rapist aswell

  10. Replies
    1. My husband is always mentioning how big our daughters breast is I hope he’s not having ideas oo I will over waste him o I don’t do police matter

    2. Please just do all you can to avoid him being left alone with her at any time. We must protect our girls

  11. What is this world turning to?

  12. This woman needs justice! Every woman in Nigeria should bond together and demand justice for this innocent child. Imagine a whole father turning a blind eye to such gross violation of his young daughter, the father should also be investigated for molesting the child. Every charity, women's guild, NGO, politician, minister, everybody need to come together. What kind of madness is this?

    1. He is concerned about shame to their useless family name instead of ensuring his child gets justice. This man should be sent to prison alongside the rapist.

  13. Oh my God! 57yrs man on top of small 8yrs old ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™
    May God get justice for the woman

    1. Very sad....I wonder what shame they're trying to avoid. Very useless set of people ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„

  14. Wicked father

    Madam the Good Lord is your Strength..
    You must surely get justice for your daughter..

  15. The father is probably a rapist as well

  16. Useless father!

    This woman needs justice and custody of all her children. They shouldn't be allowed to stay with their father.

    Family name indeed! Mtchewww

  17. She can file for custody of the kids to avoid further story since the father and his family are enablers
