A 12-year-old, primary four, deaf-and-dumb pupil has accused the 62-year-old landlord of her parents of raping her continuously leading to her impregnation. Narrating her ordeal, the teenage pupil (name withheld) of Project Chailove, a school for the physically challenged operated by a non-governmental organisation in Benin City, who spoke through a sign language interpreter, said the landlord, Victor Idahosa had sex with her 11 times in his apartment. "The man had sex with me 10 times in the day and once in the night, giving me N500 each time. I became pregnant six months ago," said the girl, adding that whenever the landlord knocked on their door, her younger sister would tell her the man was at the door.
The mother of the teenager, Mrs Sanyaolu who confirmed that her daughter became pregnant six months ago, said her findings revealed that her landlord was responsible for the pregnancy. She said Mr Idahose initially admitted to being responsible for the pregnancy when confronted and promised to take care of all expenses. She said the man, however suddenly changed his attitude towards the girl and denied being responsible for the pregnancy.
Worse still, the mother of seven said, the man has issued her with a quit notice in order to avoid taking responsibility for the pregnancy. Denying responsibility
Mrs Sanyaolu, who expressed shock and disappointment at the attitude of her landlord, said she had always regarded the man as her father.
"I am a widow and I am the only person taking care of my seven children and I take our landlord as my own father. I expected him to see my children as his children.
When he later denied responsibility for the pregnancy, I asked him if he could swear with ‘aiyelala' that he worships, and he could no longer talk," she said. When confronted, Mr Idahosa denied responsibility for the pregnancy, describing the claim as baseless. He said that his earlier position was taken under duress. He, however, said he would accept the pregnancy if it could be medically proved that he was the one who impregnated the child. Efforts to speak with the spokesperson of the Edo State police command was unsuccessful, as he could not be reached on his mobile phone. But a police source confirmed that the matter was being investigated by the Evbotubu police division.
