Father rapes, impregnates 12-year-old daughter, forces her to abort

A 12-year-old girl, Queen (surname withheld) is currently in an hospital in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. after being raped, impregnated, and her pregnancy aborted by her father, Bamekpa.

Bamekpa, who’s from Imiringi, Ogbia Local Government Area, Bayelsa State, is believed to have started raping her at the age of 11.

After molesting her repeatedly, she got pregnant but she did not know that she was with child.

Her stepmother discovered she was pregnant and informed the father, who handed her over to a lady who took her to a quack doctor for an abortion.

After the abortion, she was bleeding from her private part and the father took her back to the same lady who then took her to other places.

Speaking to Operation Rescue (OPER), a human rights group, Queen said she ran away from home when she could no longer stand her father’s carnal desires.

“There was nobody to help me. He kept doing it despite my efforts to stop him. It was a painful and violent experience. I ran away from home because there was a time I bled so much from my private part.”

“When I became pregnant and he heard about it, he handed me over to a lady who took me through an unsuccessful process of abortion. I have been suffering series of health issues after the abortion.”

Queen’s uncle, David Apigi, while expressing shock at her state, said: “My niece told me the trauma she has been passing through in father’s house and how her father has been using her, turning her to his second wife.”

“She said he had sex with her to the extent that he aborted her four-month-old pregnancy. She ran to me and begged me not to allow her to return to her father’s house because she was tired. I decided to accommodate her. The father started looking for her without knowing she was with me.”

Apigi revealed that his cousin, Rex Ogboku, in Abuja, reported the matter to the Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA).

“My cousin, Rex Ogboku, in Abuja called FIDA to inform them about the situation. But the way FIDA was going about the issue was too sluggish for my liking. I decided to contact the Operation Rescue.”

“We went back to the police and the Otuasiga Police Station arrested the man. The process through which the Otuasiga Police Station was handling the case was not satisfactory.”

“Imagine a situation where somebody was arrested and while in detention he was still having access to his phone, making calls. He even called me. He called my uncle, trying to plead with him for settlement. I moved the case to Kolo Police Station.”

He also revealed that Queen’s father was known for sexual perversion, claiming that he also had intercourse with his biological sisters and also took advantage of his cousin’s daughter and forced her to commit abortion five times.
