It's a known fact that child marriage has a negative impact and devastation on the lives of children - most especially on girls' lives. It has not only robbed from them their rights, but more especially stolen away their childhoods.
The girl of around 12-year-old from Delta, who was allegedly married off to an elderly man, was brought down to Ekpoma in Edo State, has been rescued by good samaritans and being handed over to the police.
Aside the video that was sent by the good samaritans that rescued the teenage girl from the claws of a wicked man to gossipmills, it apparently obvious that the little must have been sexually abused by the man before being apprehended and a report made to the police in Ekpoma.
In the video sent to gossipmills, the narrator, he said that the man in question alleged that the 12-year-old girl was married off to him by the girl's Dad, which he brought down to Edo State, in Ekpoma to show off his new wife.
Nevertheless, the case has already been brought before the table of the police, and the rescued teenage girl at present is in the custody of police at Ekpoma in Edo State.
