A Nigerian woman, Mercy Makinde, has shared shocking revelations about young girls that passed through sexual abuse right in their homes.
According to the CEO of IASPIRE RADIO, the underage girls opened up during the ‘Touch Me Not Campaign’ held in Lagos as she called on parents to listen to their children.
The woman took to her social media page to share the sexual abuse experiences as written down by the young girls. Read below;
It’s been another depressing day today as we embarked on the TOUCH ME NOT CAMPAIGN and listened to the woes of our dear children of this country!
They are going through so much and we can’t just keep watching some evil people destroy the lives of these innocent children.
Parents please listen to your children. Believe them if they report any case of abuse to you. Our children are dying in silence !
They live in fear. They are being threatened by Abusers right under your roof. No matter the high class school you put them… no matter the plenty school fees you are paying… these kids won’t thrive if they are dealing with this trauma.
Parents please keep an eagle eye on your child. If you can’t deal with the reality of them being abused, rather than sweep it under the carpet please seek help.
It was a sad tale to read as some of the girls were even abused by teenage boys of almost their age. A girl, according to her story, claimed she was constantly abused by her father’s friend’s son who was staying with them. She even went further to mention that the boy had an extra key for him to gain access into her room.
This is just an indication of how some parents have neglected their duties and left their children to the care of predators. Sexual abuse on underage girls needs to be stopped!
