Rita-EdochieAt a seminar on violence against the girl child held in Abuja, Wednesday, Veteran actress, Rita Edochie  revealed how she was raped as a child by the son of her mother’s friend.

She was only in Primary six when this happened.

“I was a victim of sexual abuse; that was when I was in primary six; I was going to the hospital and somebody called me,” she said, “The boy used some diabolic means and sexually violated me; when I could not see my period, I refuse to tell my mother, because she was very strict.”

The actress who is an in-law to the legend Pete Edochie, went further to reveal the horror she went through afterwards, how her brother attempted to stab her after the pregnancy was made known, and also her mother’s plan to get the pregnancy aborted.

“I love sharing my experience because at the end of the day I succeeded,” Edochie said, adding, “If I had not succeed, I would not have been able to be saying it.”

 

My mother asked how it happened and I told her everything; my brother picked a knife and wanted to kill me, but my mother stopped him.

It happened that the mother of the boy that violated me was my mother’s friend; the boy’s mother was surprise but the boy denied. My mother took me to hospital to abort the pregnancy with a plan of taking me to my grandmother’s place at ‘Ogede’ to stay for one week before returning home.

I told her I may lose my life in the process; and because she loved me, she then aborted the planned abortion; I feel it was God that spoke through me.

My mother took care of the baby while I went to school; if not for my mother I would not be where I am today.

Parents should always listen to their children’s complaints on happenings both in and outside the home.”
