29-year-old farmer rapes 8-year-old child in Benue state


What is this world turning into? This is the chilling question members of Mkovur Ipav in Gboko Local Government Area of Benue State asked themselves as they witnessed yet another abomination on a state that has witnessed grief and pain for so long now. Sgt. Ato Godwin, the Prosecution Witness, recounted before a bewildered Magistrate Court how on the 17th of October, the accused, one Mr. Terzungwe Aende, a 29 years old local farmer shamelessly bounced on an innocent girl of 8 (her name withheld for obvious reasons) and forced his way into her! The accused then threatened the girl not to tell anyone or he will harm her! What a shame!

 This pathetic case was lodged at the B Division, Gboko by the relative of the girl, Mr. Ushahemba Aasegh who lamented the ordeal faced by his little niece. The Prosecution asked the Court for an adjournment to enhance proper investigation of the matter. The presiding Magistrate, Ajuma Igama ordered the case file to be returned to the Benue Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice and adjourned the case to November 30th.
