A 12-year-old girl allegedly raped by 42-year-old Eddy Ojah at Otada community in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue state has revealed what she told her assaulter.

Reports of the dastardly act last week had drawn furious reactions from Nigerians, many of whom called for severe punishment for the alleged rapist.

But the victim said she told Ojah that God would punish him if he did not turn a new leaf.

Narrating her ordeal, the teenage girl, who was in tears, said, “I was coming back from where we grind garri in the engine at about 10 am on Tuesday and was going home to pack firewood to fry our garri when a man named Eddy Ojah grabbed me from the road.

“Because the road is connected and near his house so he was coming outside, he saw me and grabbed me and kicked me into his room.

“He locked the door and started beating me. After that, he went to the back door and locked it, switched on his phone music and connected it to the loudspeaker, he made it so loud and when I was shouting nobody could hear me.

“After beating me, he dragged me to his bedroom and raped me. So, I now told him that if he does not repent, God is going to judge him and God will show him because he has been doing it to others.

“Before I came out, he called his friend who is outside, to help him to check if there is anyone around and let him know. So his friend checked and told him that there was nobody outside. So, he opened the door for me and told me to go home. He warned me that if I tell anybody, he would kill me.

“I am in the hospital, I was admitted since then.”
