A 14-year-old orphan girl has narrated in an emotional letter how master drugged and raped her serially.
According to Punch, Nathaniel who was arrested by policemen attached to the Ikotun Police Division, raped the girl at his residence on Ajisegiri Street, in the Egbe area, after he gave her a glass of juice laced with drugs.
The orphan girl identified as Chinwe, made her plight known in a tearful letter she wrote to Nathaniel's wife, narrating how her master defiled her after gave her the drugged drink.
The victim who was brought from a village in the south eastern part of Nigeria to work in Nathaniel’s house, said after she took the drink, she passed out only to wake up hours later naked, with semen dripping out of her private parts.
On realising what her master did to her, Chinwe allegedly fled the house, dropping the letter for the suspect’s wife to intimate her on the sexual abuse she had suffered in the hands of her husband.
The traumatized teenager also confided in a neighbour who is a pastor in the area who informed a child rights’ organisation, which in turn reported at the police station leading to the suspect's arrest.
In the letter, Chinwe wrote that she did not want to return to the house as she was fed up with sexual abuses by Nathaniel.
The letter reads:
“Dear aunty, I want to go. I am suffering here. Look at what your husband has been doing to me.
The last time that he did it, he gave me a drink and I did not know that he purposely gave me that drink so that I could fall asleep.
It was when I woke up that I now found myself naked. I now saw white thing on my laps. This is what he was doing to me the other time that I told you that I wanted to go.
I do not want to cause trouble for you. Please, call my brother to come and take me away. I want to go and I do not want to stay here again.”

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Dolapo Badmos, has confirmed Nathaniel’s arrest, adding that the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has directed that the case be charged to court.
