She is beautiful and I was scared of someone else enjoying her’ – Man who impregnated 15-year-old daughter

A 48-year-old farmer and petty trader, Theddius Audu reportedly impregnated his 15-year-old daughter Justina in Wuyeya, a village under Assakio, Lafia Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

Audu took up the sole responsibility of his daughter’s upbringing after his marriage to Talatu Ayi from Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of the state ended 13 years ago due to irreconcilable differences.


The Nation reported that his younger sister who helped out in raising the little girl, died in a tragic accident in January 2019 on her way back from Lafia market. Audu decided to relocate to a three-bedroom apartment he had managed to build in the village after the incident, so his daughter could live comfortably in safety and without any fear. The decision resulted in a pregnancy as Justina is 4 months gone already.

Recounting how the sad incident occurred, Justina said;
“God has inflicted a permanent wound on me; there is absolutely no point keeping me alive. I think I should just commit suicide and die, rather than continue living to bear this shameful burden. God has not been fair to me and I don’t know my sin or offence. My mother left me when I was barely two years old; and up till now, hasn’t taken as much as a second look back. My late aunty Agnes, who brought me up died, recently and now I’m pregnant for my father. What could be worse than that,” she asked bursting into tears.
“When my aunty died in an accident, my father moved me into his three bedroom apartment to occupy one of the rooms. He used to check my private part to see if I had started menstruating or having sex with boys. One night, I was sleeping after a hectic day; he came into my room, removed my wrapper and inserted his finger in to my private part, asking if I had started menstruating. I woke up suddenly from sleep and asked, “Daddy why are you doing this to me?”
“He asked if I had had sex before and I said no. He then said he would use his penis to test my virginity. Before I could utter any word, he had climbed on top of me. I wanted to scream, but he held my mouth and penetrated into me. I struggled to wriggle free but he over-powered me and forcefully deflowered me. I bled throughout that night, crying uncontrollably till the following day. I was also in pains throughout.
“I felt very bad but he warned me that nobody must hear of what he did to me. He also threatened to slaughter me with a knife if he heard it from anybody. That was how he kept sleeping with me at night and eventually got me pregnant.
“How I wish my mother were around; this shameful thing would not have happened to me. It is incredible; my world and life has crumbled. How can I have a child for my father?
“The days that followed my Aunt’s death were both utterly full and completely empty; full of activities, yet empty of life because there was nobody to take care of me and guide me properly.
“Her absence gave my father the opportunity to ruin my life. I feel very ashamed that my own biological father is responsible. Now I think about death frequently because my father decided that I should leave the pregnancy and deliver a male child for him.”
She said her father has even threatened to kill her if she tried aborting the pregnancy. “So I don’t have any choice but to allow it grow; meanwhile, the pregnancy is just four months.”

On his own part, Audu said he always felt pain of someone “toasting” his beautiful daughter and enjoying, after he went through difficulties to raise her. He also described the pregnancy as a “secret arrangement”.

He said;
“She looks beautiful and I always feel the pains that one day, someone else will toast her and start enjoying what I suffered all these years to raise. When her mother left me, I took the pains to bring her up because I could not get married and was alone.
“It started like a joke. I don’t know what came over me; she tried to resist me but I was very harsh on her and she allowed me have my way. Thereafter, we continued unabated. I actually wanted to test her virginity status, to know whether she had started going out with boys but when she told me she missed her period, I decided that she should not abort it.
“She should deliver the baby for me since I don’t have any other child. Thereafter, she can get married to anybody of her choice. This was the secret arrangement we had and I don’t know why she is exposing it now.
“That is the much I can say about it.”

29-Year-Old Man Found Dead Inside APC Chieftain’s House (Photo)

A politician in Anambra state has found himself in serious trouble after a 29-year-old man was found dead in his house.

The man was found dead in the politician’s house


The death of one Ifeanyi Ikejemba, a cousin to Dozie Ikedife Jnr, has generated controversies in Nnewi, Anambra state, POLITICS NIGERIA learnt.
Dozie Ikedife Jnr was a deputy governorship aspirant under the All Progressive Congress (APC) in 2015. He is also the eldest son of late Anambra elder statesman and former President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr Dozie Ikedife.

The Ikedifes and the Ikejembas are from Otolo and Akammili villages respectively.
This paper gathered that Ifeanyi Ikejemba, who had lived with the Ikedifes for over 16 years was found dead on March 2, inside his room in the Ikedife’s family compound.
However, the death of Ifeanyi has caused a furore in the family as Ifeanyi’s elder sibling, Ebele Ikejemba, accused Dozie Jnr of killing her brother. Also on that fateful day, some youths in the community threatened to raze down Mr Dozie’s house and other properties.

Ebele, who had earlier made her stance known via a Facebook post dated March 3, called the attention of the police and human rights activists to the alleged murder. According to her, Dozie Jnr sent for her brother to come and see him at Otolo, a night before his death. “Ifeanyi left Akammili and never returned alive,” She narrated.
Dozie Jnr returned from the United States of America (USA) on that day and called in around 9:00 pm.

Nevertheless, when POLITICS NIGERIA contacted Ebele, she insisted that Dozie killed Ifeanyi saying that three holes were found on his corpse when she visited the morgue. She added that when Dozie Jnr came to announce the death of Ifeanyi, he claimed that the deceased had carnal knowledge of his daughter fourteen years ago.

Quoting Dozie Jnr, Ebele stated that the alleged assault took place when the girl was five years old.
“Dozie Ikedife Jnr apparently ordered his security, driver and chef to beat him up and the next morning being 02/03/20 he was told that Ifeanyi our brother didn’t wake up.”

“However, when we went to the police to determine where the body of our brother was, we saw several gunshot wounds inflicted on his body. But the gunshot wound inflicted on his body had been stitched up by Dozie’s younger brother, Dr Somadina Ikedife so that it would have seemed like he was beaten to death.”
 
“Instead our very quiet and helpful brother was rather shot in cold blood. Now Dozie Ikedife Jnr is reaching out to the powerful businessmen and military to hide away from the sins he has committed,” She said.

Rancour
Although the relationship between the Ikejemba’s and the Ikedife’s have been a smooth one in the last fifteen years, a disagreement occurred towards December 2019, POLITICS NIGERIA gathered.

Dozie Jnr sponsored the tiling apprenticeship training for Ifeanyi and the tertiary education of his younger sister.
Meanwhile, this correspondent was told that before the visit of March 1, Ifeanyi had a disagreement with Dozie jnr which led to him moving out of the house in December.
Ebele stated that Mr Dozie owns a bar called ‘Elders’ court’ in Otolo, where Ifeanyi once worked. “While he was working at the bar, Dozie was not paying him and Ifeanyi complained that if Dozie wants him to continue working, he deserves to be paid like other staff,” this was the basis of the disagreement, Ebele said.
She further explained that Ifeanyi protested because staying in the bar clashed with his tiling job.
 
Ikedife’s defence
When our correspondent reached out to Mr Dozie, he immediately claimed the telephone number dialled was not his and a follow-up SMS was sent to him, insisting that the line belongs to him.

Meanwhile, his media aide, Lotanna Okafor, contacted POLITICS NIGERIA the following day, saying Mr Dozie instructed him to respond to the allegations. In his response, Mr Dozie denied being culpable for Ifeanyi’s death.

“We were all asleep only for domestic staff to tell us that he was dead the following day,” Okafor said.
“It was a great loss because Ifeanyi is a good boy that the family likes. The late Dozie Snr loved him. In fact, when his grandmother died, Dozie gave her a befitting burial.”
 
When quizzed about the cause of Ifeanyi’s death, he told this correspondent that police are yet to ascertain the cause of the death. Although he denied any disagreement between Ifeanyi and Mr Dozie, he confirmed that the deceased stopped managing the bar some months ago.
However, Okafor said he was not privy to much information about what brought Ifeanyi to the house that night but he debunked allegations of any assault launched on the deceased.
 
“Ifeanyi’s room is still much intact. His clothes are there. He comes and leaves when he feels like,” He told POLITICS NIGERIA.

The cry for justice Ever since the death of Ifeanyi, all efforts by his family members to get justice have yielded no result.

POLITICS NIGERIA confirmed that Mr Dozie Jnr was invited by the police to the Area Command in Awka but he refused to honour the invitation.

Ebele earlier told POLITICS NIGERIA that when the police came to Dozie’s residence to arrest some suspects, no one was found in the house.

“We demand the Inspector General of police to set up a team to be headed by DCP kauri to investigate the whole situation. We are willing to involve the Human rights movement, the American Government (Since Dozie also has an American citizenship) and has the capability of running away, involving the government and every possible media outlet since now he is moving to threaten our families,” She disclosed to our correspondent.

Although POLITICS NIGERIA could not reach the Area Commander of police in that area, Haruna Mohammed, the Anambra state police spokesperson promised to look into the case.
 
“Just saw it. Let the complainants meet me in the office for discreet investigation please,” He informed our correspondent.
