I came across a disheartening news about Nkechi and her daughter. According to the reports by Amaka Okeagu, “last month, Nkechi came back home looking very healthy and cheerful, only for her to have met her daughter in her apartment with a man struggling.

Nkechi’s daughter who was then preparing for her SSCE exams struggled with this young man who shared a flat with her mother wanting to rape her . When he heard Nkechi’s voice, all he could think of was to picked a hammer and hit on the mother as well as the daughter then ran away.” Unfortunately, Nkechi died on the way to hospital while her daughter died two days ago leaving behind an aged mother, husband and two daughters.

Thank God the rapist confessed to the crime but the big question is, “how long will he serve the term?”, “will this be the last of rape cases?”

Few days ago, I shared my experience on how I was molested and the story about how Kenny Awujoola escaped being raped.

Interestingly, I feel it’s time we take a critical look at ways of putting this to an abrupt end by punishing rapists, pedophiles, and molesters. Should we have to wait for law to take its course in all these? Seriously, it’s so painful to see that most rapists and molesters usually go scot free after being apprehended. It’s about time we take actions. It’s not just to write or talk, let’s make a move to put this to an end.
