Broadcaster, Hammid Bakare, who met and interacted with the young lady, Grace Nkanueko, shared her story. According to him, he is on a mission to get justice for her. Read what he wrote below…
‘A case was brought to my attention. There is this lady (aged between 19 and 21) that was a patient, from stories told, her step brother impregnated her (she was raped) and she was sent out of the village. A catholic evangelist brought her to Lagos and was having his way with her while she was still pregnant under his roof. She delivered through ceacerian section on Tuesday last week. The Church priest and some other people are trying to convince this young lady to give out her child for a price. She is really shattered because of all she has gone through. I believe that she should be assisted and not be deceived to give out her child.
I am taking it upon myself to investigate this matter and help this young lady. From her story, her step mum and even the village has sent her away, which means she is basically on her own.
I am currently waiting for the welfare office Lagos with a view to ensure that the young girl and take her new baby aren’t separated. The name of the hospital where she is based at is MOTHER MARY CATHOLIC HOSPITAL on KAMORU ADEYEMI and OLUDEGUN STREETS, ire-akari estate Isolo, Lagos. She is in the female ward. Her name is GRACE Nkanueko.
The culprits are Mr Jekpon-oghene Dukuye (evangelist), the doctors are Dr Chidinma Ejiofor and Dr Jane. I have alerted the Lagos state authority on abuse and child rape. Presently the hospital officials are trying to take the girl and her child to an unknown destination. I will also see to it that the culprits ( Evangelist Dukuye and Dr. Chidinma Ejiofor, and Dr. Jane) get apprehended. Meanwhile, anyone out there who can help the mother and child with toiletries and stuffs to help her nurture her child can contact me directly.
Please help this mother and child with your prayers. Don’t forget to share this post for maximum publicity.
Thank you and God bless.
