“She suddenly became calm when her friends asked her to swear.
That was what drew the attention of the counsellor, who asked her what the problem was. The victim opened up to her on how their neighbour had been having marathon sex with her for over a year.
Medical test later confirmed she had been abused. The suspect confessed at the police station that whenever he does not go to work, he would defile the minor. .
Adigun’s family had been threatening the victim’s parents, which was why I took up the case. I want them to get justice. The suspect also claimed that the girl used to come to his room to seek assistance, that he didn’t force her. .
