A pastor of a Pentecostal church Christopher Tochukwu was arrested by the police force in Aba for allegedly raping girls and for allegedly operating a baby factory in no 252 Faulks road, Aba, Abia State.
A young lady who escaped being raped went ahead to tip the police of all that goes on in the said address.
Being a one time rape victim, I know the pain and trauma that comes with being a victim. Each time I read or hear stories as this, I am broken beyond words. I still pray and hope that one day rape and its siblings will become a thing of the past.

And more awareness should be made as it regards rape and sexual abuse/molestation as it is ravaging our nation, day by day.

She was having her bath when Continue reading “THE RAPIST’S PHILOSOPHY: Will Rape Ever End”

Everyday, while we feign ignorance at the rate of abuse that goes in the society, we are hit with tales of various victims.
Fathers are abusing their children, Brothers, Sisters, neighbours are not left out. Yet we try to justify rape and sexual abuse/molestation. A couple of days ago, social media knew no peace as shameless men and women tried so freaking hard to justify an act of sexual molestation.
