Wife of One Mr. Gabriel Ogba in Badagry, Lagos cries out as her husband allegedly sexually abused their 3 daughters. She revealed the ages of the daughters as 25, 20 and 13 years old respectively. She also revealed that this as been going on for quite a number of years without her knowledge.
The woman who identified herself as Tope Ogba filed a report to the Lagos State Special Offences Court in Ikeja. At the knowledge of the case being reported, Mr Gabriel Ogba attacked his wife almost setting her ablaze.
Tope Ogba said “I did not know what was going on; it was when he molested my third daughter that I got to know about what was going on and I later heard about the sexual act on my older daughters from people outside”
The mother of 3 gave a further explanation on how her husband attacked her thus:
“I ran to a trader’s kiosk and I noticed that I was soaked in blood; I attempted to call my children on the phone, but he approached me and poured petrol on my body. A bystander rescued me by preventing him from setting me ablaze; I was taken away in a car by the person who helped me who, unknown to me, is a human rights campaigner.We went to the Morogbo Police Station and my husband was arrested and transferred to the Agege Police Station. He was thereafter moved to the Kirikiri Prison. My daughters were taken to a hospital in Ikeja, where it was confirmed that they had been sexually abused.” this was after severely hitting her with a stick at her shop at Mope.
The husband of Tope, Gabriel Ogba is currently undergoing trial in the court. The c#case was however adjourned till 7th of March owing to the fact that the testimony against Mr. Gabriel was from his 13-year old daughter who is an underage.
