Controversial Nigerian actress Tonto Dikeh has led some group of Nigerians to the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Apo was aimed at raising voices and a call for justice for the four-year-old girl, Khloe, who was allegedly raped by a 40-year-old man, Idris Ebiloma, in 2016.
The actress who first addressed the case of child molestation on social media also shared her concerns on Instagram, revealing that the man identified as Idris Ebiloma molested the little girl when she was four years old.
According to the actress, the man was sent to prison for his crimes, but he is now set to be released from Kuje prison on Friday. She asked Nigerians to join her at the court to make sure he remains in prison for his crime and at the court in Abuja on Friday, July 5, 2019 – some Nigerians joined the actress in the protest.
According to Tonto, the case was adjourned to Thursday, October 3, for hearing. This will give ample time for the prosecution to tender all evidence and witnesses to the case so as to prove that there was rape.
Nonetheless, the culprit was remanded in prison until the case is heard again in October. Tonto also revealed that the judge urged the prosecutor and defendant to tender more evidence and witnesses to the case, so justice can be served as swift as possible.
The protesters are demanding Idris be sentenced to life imprisonment when he is finally found guilty; that way he can serve as a scapegoat to others who perpetrate such heinous crimes like child molestation.
However, it is worthy to note that the time of writing this story, the actress has put her Instagram page on private. We believe that the reason for this action is due to the sensitivity of the case.
