In 2017, Gift was impregnated by her biological father, who forced her to have an abortion before impregnating her again in 2018. The case was reported and Gift’s father was charged to court.
Sadly, on the morning of the court sitting, Gift, her uncle, the advocacy officers in charge of her case and others died in a motor accident.
Joining the Brave Heart Initiative for Youth and Women (BHI) to call for the prosecution of Gift’s father, the Edo State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Mrs. Magdalene Ohenhen said that it is becoming normal for Edo men to sleep with their daughters while noting the case of another man who slept with his own daughter for over 10 years before it was reported.
“It’s a very sad situation. Edo State is becoming something else, and the earlier we stop it, the better for us. It is becoming a normal thing in Edo State for men to impregnate their own daughters. Men of Edo State, it’s time we stopped all this. Edo State forbids it, it is a taboo. We are begging Edo men to stop sleeping with their daughters, it is an abomination” Punch reported.
