Following the frustration, she reported to the Police and her 72-year old father, Ibrahim Danlami Yunusa, was arrested while her elder brother absconded and is now at large.
See her story (shared in Hausa):
My father and my brother have slept with me several times which led to this eight-month pregnancy. I informed them and they both declined
to take responsibility, therefore I decided to report them to the police.
My elder brother is now on the run but he had molested me repeatedly between December, 2018 and January, 2019.
My father started having sexual intercourse with me after I reported to him that my elder brother, Yusuf, was sneaking into my room at night to have carnal knowledge of me. I expected my dad to scold him and discipline him but instead he wanted to calm me down and comfort me then ended up sleeping with me there in his room.
Anytime I attempted to resist my father’s demand, he threatened to disown me and I was always scared of living on the street because my mom is late.
Actually, my father denied the allegation, saying a taxi driver that once had an affair with me should be held responsible for the pregnancy.
I know I may be loosed with men but at least they should accept the pregnancy and take care of their baby.
Though my Dad is in prison now and my elder brother is on the run but I wish he can be released so he can finish what he started. I don’t know how to abort and I won’t so both he and my brother must come and father their child.
