Sad… Six Year-Old Girl Dies from Complications after Being Raped by her Teenage Brothers in Delta State



Just two days after the House of Representatives recommended life imprisonment for rapists in Nigeiria, two teenage brothers have been arrested in Delta state for allegedly raping their six year-old sister who died from complications from the sexual abuse.

The sad incident occurred at Ogbe-Ijoh community, Warri South Local Government Area of the state. Sun News reports that the brothers, 19-year-old Felix Inia and 16-year-old Stanley Inia have been arrested by the Delta State Police Command, Asaba, for allegedly defiling their six-year-old step sister, {Name Redacted}.

Here is an excerpt from the Sun News report:

The suspects were said to have had carnal knowledge of the minor by forcefully penetrating her, which led to severe injuries in the victim’s private part.

Besides the injuries sustained after the alleged sexual abuse, little Miss later developed protruding stomach, leading to medical complications that eventually cut short the life of the victim. Investigation revealed that the suspects’ mother got married to the father of the deceased after her first marriage ended with the death of Mr. Inia. The now embattled mother moved into her new marriage with her teenage sons, who unsuspecting, had eyes on little Miss  immediately they stepped into their new home.

They allegedly carried out their ignoble mission last month when they were left with the victim at home while others had gone out for the day’s activities. According to a police source, the younger Inia, Stanley, allegedly lured his elder brother, Felix, into the act. “The younger brother said he sold the idea to his elder brother. He (Stanley) assured his brother that there was nothing to be afraid of and that he (Stanley) had been doing it with other children in the area,” the source told Daily Sun.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, ASP Famous Ajieh, confirmed the arrest of the suspects to Sun News, adding that they would be charged to court as soon as investigation was concluded.

This is so sad. Stanley’s confession of “doing it with other children in the area” is very shocking and re-emphasizes the need for mothers to pay more attention to teenage children.

Rest in peace.
