[media-credit name=”forcechange.com” align=”aligncenter” width=”500″][/media-credit]It has been reported that a 9 year old girl was raped by a 41 year old man in Hadejia City, Jigawa State. The name of the man is said to be Zakiri Imam and he has currently been arraigned in Court.
But this is just too bad. This has almost become a weekly news report and we are angry. When are these rapes going to stop? What kind of sadistic, heartless, pedophile would pounce on a 9 year old girl and force himself on her? Somebody’s daughter…somebody’s sister! It is heartbreaking. This just has to STOP.
It is NOT okay to rape anybody and it is unforgivable to rape a child. We are thankful that the police have nabbed this man, but we don’t want it to stop there. We want the full weight of the law on his head; the maximum sentence available for this kind of crime should be his portion and that of every other rapist and would-be rapist out there.
