Say No To Charles Ikeji (Take 2) PDF Print E-mail

Madam Kerosene as she is fondly called by the residents of the boisterous Angwan Gude town of Kuje Area Council in the outskirts of Abuja City, FCT is a totally confused lady as at this post. One would ask why a petty trader that sells the much needed kerosene commodity which in turn ensures that food is kept on the table for her family would close shop and be in a state of despair for weeks on end.
The above thoughts form the prelude to this post. Please share this to as many people as possible as we journey into a most painful part that showcases the peak of wickedness.

In the first quarter of the year 2009, a certain man named Charles Ikeji was caught red handed by his wife as he tried to have carnal knowledge of a little girl that has been brought to help his wife in doing domestic jobs in their home. The wife who was justifiably angry with her spouse simply packed up her belongings and left the home with her four children and the little domestic help.
On getting to her parents’ house in faraway Imo State, she was prevailed upon by her relations to return to her matrimonial home and give Charles a second chance. This she did on the condition that Charles must undergo a deliverance session at their local church. Charles gladly obliged and thing settled to normalcy once more in their home front. Unknown to her, during the tumultuous days of Charles apologizing and the Pastors laying hands on Charles, he finally had his way with the domestic maid aged 12 and his niece aged 9 who happened to live with his Mother in their hometown in Imo State.
Days turned to weeks and weeks became months and suddenly Charles felt an all knowing stir return to him as he watched his little girl become 4-years. Charles started having carnal knowledge of his little girl from time to time. This has been going on for the past 3 years as he was able to trick his wife into believing that he was a changed man. The little daughter had been warned by Charles that if she tells Mummy, then all will go sour for her.
This continued until one morning (12th of April, 2012) the baby of the house who is 3-years old woke up to complain to mummy that her “bombom” is paining her. On closer examination, Mummy discovered vaginal wounds on her yet to mature “bombom” to her utter amazement. It was a heart wrenching moment when baby girl told Mummy that Daddy had put in his something into her “bombom” two nights before.
Thankfully, Charles had travelled to the village that same day as such the coast was clear for Madam Kerosene to rush to a nearby Social Welfare Center. Baby girl was rushed to Kuje General Hospital for treatment by the Social Workers at the Center.
The next stage was now to get Charles Ikeji in for questioning. On his return from the village trip, he was approached by one of the social workers and he denied vehemently threatening to show his wife pepper for rubbing his name in the mud. Not deterred by his bravado, his wife formally reported the case to the Kuje Police Station and Mr. Charles was promptly arrested.
On further investigation by the Police, Charles Ikeji confessed to committing the crime, an offence that is contrary to the provisions of Section 282 of the Penal Code.
Charles Ikeji is now cooling off in prison custody after he formally confessed to an Upper Area Court in Gwagwalada on the 16th of April, 2012.
Investigations are over, now the case continues as Madam Kerosene is in a state of utter confusion, she needs all the advice and help she can get to be able to put her family in order and most importantly counsel her little girls properly.
What advice can you proffer? Do drop it in the comment box below and she would truly appreciate.

Evil is truly evil. May God have mercy.

Very sad and very hard to swallow but life must go on. My advice to her is to first and foremost, relocate. She must change environment and move to a new location. She must then link up with an expert that will help her and her kids through it. I send my prayers. Prayers still work wonders.

This is a very wicked act which sadly goes on in many families. I think mothers forming very close relationships with their daughters, building trust and confidence and encouraging their girls to confide in them, could help (though there are mothers who would rather not hear of such scandal from their daughters). The living environment and the way children dress or dance could also be sexual pointers so mothers - Beware!

This is evil. Let her change her environment, start life afresh by being closer to God. God will strengthen her and take charge.

She needs to relocate and then seek help with G & C experts/men of God for her and her children. It is well!

She should divorce him because he is an animal and does not deserve any kind of regard. God will definitely punish him and nemesis will catch up with him. May God continue to guide and protect her and her children.

One day at a time. Unlike other parents your workload just doubled. How that child turns out is entirely up to you. You can get through this. You will get through this. Just take what you have and make something off it. Hold this thought close to heart: "If life gives you lemon make lemonade"

Madam, you do not need to bother yourself on the issue of Charles as he is suffering under a curse. Just take your children and run for safety.

Madam,I shear in your pain as a mother and a wife. First you have to divorce that man because he is not worthy to be called a father and a husband, then relocate wth your kids and try to give them a good life. It is not going to be easy but I pray God strengthens you and give you wisdom to do the right thing. It is well with you and your kids.

Sadly, she's going to be haunted by this experience for the rest of her life. Her recovery will mostly depend on the recovery of the two little girls. Thank God there are social workers (and her church) on hand to assist because they all need to undergo emotional and spiritual counselling and therapy. She needs people around her to help her build her life back again. She needs A FRESH START!~!

Relocate and don't give up on having a
better life for your kids.

As sad as this is, it has happened. I hope the little girls get rehabilitated/counseled properly by social workers and the mother forgives herself for this mistake. Charles Ikeji should never be released. The lesson here is for other women. Do not accept this. A man trying to sleep with a 12yr old was the red flag. At this point, you should walk away. Women,say no to domestic and sexual abuse. If you see anyone going through this, help out. I wish this lady all the best.
