Story from Yakubu VENTIM, Jos
Mr Yohanna Danladi, 60, of Mangu Local Government Area Council of Plateau State has been accused by his younger sister, Queen Danladi, of having carnal knowledge of her 4-year-old daughter.
Queen, the mother of little Esther Danladi Kwashi reported the incident to security personnel on how her brother, Yohanna Danladi forcefully had sex with her daughter, causing internal injuries on the little girls private part.
Queen told Neptune Prime’s correspondent in an interview that she coached female footballers which kept her very busy and she was afraid of leaving her daughter with the neighbours to travel outside the state.
She explained that her daughter was sent to stay with the grandmother in Mangu LGA in a family compound. On 13th March 2021, her brother Yohanna took little Esther Danladi into the room and he started forcing himself on her.
However, after the incident, her mum called her to come down home that Esther is very sick and she needs urgent attention, after which she rushed to Mangu LGA to inquire of the cause of her sickness.
She narrated how the mother wanted to bathe the little girl when she started crying and shouting, which attracted the mother’s eye to her private part. It was then that the little girl exposed that her uncle, Yohanna Danladi used his manhood to touch her buttocks and the place is paining her.
We reported the incident to Mangu Police on the 16th of March 2021 where they came and arrested him and he confessed to having carnal knowledge of the little girl but pleaded for leniency.
The accused person, Yohanna Danladi was alleged to be under the influence of dangerous drugs.
Queen Danladi’s mother, Rhoda Danladi told our correspondent that the little girl was complaining of pains with blood-stained at the private part and sperm.
She decried that the family are now threatening her life that she exposed them before the general public instead of settling the incident amicably with the family.
She told our correspondent that she found it very difficult to let go of the rape by her own brother who is supposed to be a protector and guardian.
Queen vowed that she is ready to seek justice in court in order to stop the reoccurrence of the act by her own brother who has been known for committing the act against minors.
She alleged that Yohanna Danladi committed a similar offence with their neighbour’s daughter which was secretly resolved within the family.
He the accused was scheduled to be arraigned before justice Nafisatu Mohammed on the 4th of October 2021 for a rape-related case of a minor.
