Little Agnes NJOWE was found Sunday Morning, July 01st 2012, with a damaged anus at the backyard of a 72 year old man, considered the primary suspect of the atrocious act.
She disappeared 24 hours before, after an aged man collected her from her brothers, on their way home, claiming he was going to feed her.
‘The man took Njowe on our way home from our aunt’s place, to feed her. We were going back home because we felt lonely at our aunt’s place, after our mum left us there, for the market to sell some fish’ 7 year old Emmanuel NGOGANG, the elder brother of the victim, testified
When I asked if he could recognise the man.
Emmanuel said all he could remember was that, the man was dressed in black and went the opposite direction, and they never saw Njowe, until the newt day.
The Little girl is lying helpless in a Douala based Bonassama District hospital pending 3 surgical interventions. The parents are poor and helpless people who can barely put food on the table for the family.
Talking to Doctor Fogaing Dupleix the gynaecologist and paediatrician who has been in charge of the 18 Month rape case to know the girl’s chances of surviving the ordeal which befell her; The Doctor said 3 important surgical operations must be carried out on Little Njowe, if she must survive.
And while the parents of the little girl gnash their teeth in pain and misery over the fate of their daughter’s survival, the rapist is straying the streets somewhere in Dibombari, with no guilt on the damage caused.
