A US based model Identified as Mary Timms has called on the government and other human rights agencies to llok into the case of a 9 year old girl who was raped by a 31 year old man in Bayelsa. According to the story, the man lured the young girl with just N20 note and defiled her.
Read her message below.
”It breaks my heart to read over the Internet the several cases of Rape of minors and young ladies. Situations like these gave birth to my passion to fight against this inhumanity to man. Where are going to? Tears run down my eyes when I hear these sad stories and the pains these little girls tend to live with forever. Though, Rape can be either way, but cases of underaged ladies are becoming prevelent by the day.
It beats my imagination why a 31 year old man in Bayalsa state will Rape a young girl of 9 year? What a wicked world and diabolic act? The man was said to have lured the minor with N20 as reported yesterday. This act must be discouraged, it is not only babaric but also dehumanizing and trumatic to the victims.
I Mary Timms is calling on the Government to fight for its citizens by way of protecting them more with the help of security agencies. While our celebrities should lend their voices with their influence and platforms as we join hands to fight this stigmatic scourge. Our NGO – Mary Timms Foundation has launched out this fight against Rape, and I and my team will stop at noting to ensure we put a stop to it with much awareness campaign and fruitful working relationship with security agencies in different parts of the Nigeria and in diaspora.”
