A 5-year-old girl named Kadijah M. Saccoh have died after she and her elder sister were raped by their cousin in Sierra Leone.
Kadijah and her 8-year-old sister were living with their aunt who is an elder sister to their mum in freetown, Sierra Leone.
Kadijah’s parents seperated and her father, Congolese Saccoh, is living in the United States of America which she is a citizen. Her dad tried to take custody of his two kids but their mother refused.
Kadijah and her elder sister lived with their aunt whose son was also living with her.
According to reports, the aunt found out that her son had raped Kadijah’s sister, kept it to herself and treated the girl herself.
Her son thereafter raped 5-year-old Kadijah which their aunt also discovered and tried to treat her secretly, but unfortunately, the girl died.
It was alleged that the aunt told Kadijah’s father’s family about kadijah’s death, and tried to convince them that she should bury her immediately, but Kadijah’s dad insisted on knowing the cause of her death before she is buried.
Kadijah’s father instructed his family to take Kadijah’s corpse for a post-mortem and when the result came, they discovered that 5-year-old Kadijah was raped multiple times.
The father thereafter requested that his older daughter should be taken for a test too and when the results came, they discovered that she had also been raped.
The aunt and her son have been arrested by the police.
The incident has however led to a very for justice on social media with the hashtags #JusticeForKadijahSaccoh and #JusticeForKadijah.
