A few days ago, popular controversial Nigerian celebrity, Tonto Dikeh called out a man who raped a four-year-old girl in Abuja back in September 2016. Although the man simply identified as Idris Ebiloma was sent to prison for his crimes, he is now set to be released from Kuje prison on Friday, July 5.
Reacting to the sad story, veteran actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo has penned an open letter to the Commissioner of Police in the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Ciroma to ensure that the victim gets justice because raping a child is one of the most heinous crimes anyone can commit.
Read his open letter below;
AN OPEN LETTER TO FCT CP.
Dear CP Bala Ciroma,
I am hearing rumours that nearly 3 years ago, in your jurisdiction, a full grown man Mr IDRIS EBILOMA allegedly raped a 4-year-old child. All rapes are evil, damaging and unforgivable but the rape of a child? That in itself is not only the worst form of rape but one of the most heinous crimes anyone can commit but more disheartening than the crime itself is the allegation that the police is frustrating efforts to get this innocent child the justice she so badly deserves.
With the increased spate of insecurity, abuse of personal freedom (especially by SARS) and now rape. The police cannot play ostrich and pretend to be unaware of the mood of the nation. What better time and what better way to prove that the police is indeed our friend by ensuring that the investigation and evidence(s) presented to the court are thorough and an iron clad case made against the offender.
Sir, I have never met you but I hear that you’re a good man and I am going by that assumption which is why I am writing you this open letter, hoping that the power of social media will lead it to you and trusting that you will live up to your reputation and use your noble office to get KHLOE the justice she deserves, that way she grows up having great hopes in our law enforcement and judiciary.
Sir, CP Bala, we are rooting for you to write your name in gold in Nigeria’s history by being the one who made it happen.
