  1. An Army hero has bravely shared her incredible story of survival after being sex-trafficked as a teen. Amber Causey was just 16 when she was taken in by a manipulative pimp who forced her to sell sex. She was R@ped hundreds of times and spent a miserable existence sleeping between crack houses and buses just to say warm. Now aged 29, Amber is a celebrated US Army veteran and has completely transformed her life. A mum-of-two with two master’s degrees, she has devoted her life to ending the child trafficking trade. Amber told how her ordeal began one day when her pimp flirtatiously dropped a note with his number at her feet. The man, whom she believed was her boyfriend, lavished her with food, new clothes and a phone. But after a few weeks, he took her to his apartment and ordered her to walk the streets selling sex and threatened to beat her if she rebelled. Amber, who had already experienced abuse as a child, was forced to sleep with up to ten men-a-day and claims she was “severely beaten” if she made less than $500. For nine months in 2006 and 2007, Amber survived on a daily allowance of $20 for food and condoms. The former staff sergeant owes her life to a recruiter who came looking for her two years after she registered her interest at a school careers fair. The man who trafficked Amber, who she does not wish to name for safety reasons, was not convicted in her case but has served time for battery and drug offences. Meanwhile Amber, who has a criminal record after being convicted of prostitution in 2006 despite being just 16 at the time, has devoted her life to helping end human trafficking. She tours high schools educating young people on the topic and hopes to influence policy. Her aim is to create a world free of sexual exploitation for her daughter Aaliyah, eight, and son Armoni, two. “I still think about what happened and I live in a different reality because of it. I have PTSD and I’m afraid of the dark. “But the main thing is I’m scared for my children. “I want to be able to protect my kids – and other people’s – from the same thing happening to them.”
  2. “Please, let me see my son!” those were the words of singer Wandecoal’s babymama, Temitope Ogunnusi. According to NewsmakersNG, Tope dropped out of secondary school at the age of 16 after being impregnated by 23-year-old Wande, back in 2008. The love child, Joseph, is now 10 years old and Tope has not seen him for 8 years. Tope told NewsmakersNG that when she told Wande that he was going to be a father, the singer rejected the pregnancy. “Do you want to kill my career?” he allegedly asked Temitope. . He denied paternity of the baby and left the neighbourhood so Temitope would not see him again. After delivery, Wande’s mom, Mrs Omolara Oluwayemisi Ojosipe, arranged to see the baby. A DNA test was conducted in 2010 and it showed the singer as the father of Joseph. The baby was however abducted by the mom after cajoling Tope to allow him to come and spend some time with her. She thereafter blocked every means of communication between her son and Tope. Temitope said she told her: “My son cannot marry a low class woman.” The gateman was also instructed never to open the gate for her. . She called many times, but Mrs Ojosipe would not pick her call. Whenever she used a strange number, the woman would get angry and rain curses on her, telling her “never to call this line again”. . Tope revealed that she had spent the last 8 years waking up with tears on her pillow and pain in her heart. “Please just let me see my son,’ she begged while being interviewed. “He’s the only one I’ve got.” . When asked to speak on Temitope’s case, a human rights lawyer, Kayode Oyemakinde, said: “Temitope, should not only be allowed to see her son from time to time; she should also be compensated in cash. . She dropped out of secondary school in her final year to give birth to Wande’s son. She should be compensated for the trauma she suffered in the hands of Wande Coal and his mother.” . For over a month, NewsmakersNG tried to reach Wande Coal through several channels, but he was incommunicado.

  4. The Pope has admitted he made ‘grave errors’ in the Chile sex abuse scandal and begged for forgiveness as he invited victims to Rome. In an extraordinary letter, Francis also summoned Chile’s bishops to the Vatican for an emergency meeting in the coming weeks to discuss the scandal, which has badly tarnished his reputation and that of the Chilean church. Francis blamed a lack of ‘true and balanced information’ in his missteps in judging Bishop Juan Barros, a protege of Chile’s most notorious predator priest. He strongly defended Barros despite accusations by victims that the Chilean priest witnessed and ignored their abuse. Francis sent the Vatican’s most respected sex abuse investigator, Archbishop Charles Scicluna, to investigate the scandal. While the pope’s letter does not reveal Mr Scicluna’s conclusions, Francis made clear the bishops needed to ‘repair the scandal where possible and re-establish justice’. The Catholic Church in the South American country had been bracing for revelations in the letter. Francis sent Scicluna to investigate allegations of sex abuse cover-up by Bishop Juan Barros, a protege of the Rev Fernando Karadima. Karadima was a charismatic preacher who was removed from ministry by the Vatican for sexually abusing minors and sentenced in 2011 to a lifetime of penance and prayer. Karadima had long been a darling of the Catholic hierarchy, and his victims have accused church leaders of covering up his crimes to protect the church’s reputation. Scicluna and his colleague, the Rev. Jordi Bertomeu, spent nearly two weeks in Chile and New York earlier this year interviewing Karadima’s victims, who for years have denounced Barros’ silence and were stunned by Francis’ strong defense of him during his January visit to Chile. Many of Chile’s bishops, and members of Francis’ own sex abuse advisory board, had questioned Barros’ suitability to lead a diocese given claims by Karadima’s victims that Barros stood by and did nothing while Karadima groped them. Francis overrode their concerns and appointed Barros bishop of the southern Chilean diocese of Osorno in 2015, saying the church had investigated the claims against him and found them to be baseless.
  5. 47-year-old Thompson Agena from Nasarawa State, has been arrested for the murder of his six year old daughter and only child, Mercy. According to Sun newspaper, Thompson killed his own child on the request of his lover whom he wanted to marry as a second wife. The suspect who is a carpenter, had gotten married to his first wife, Cecilia in 2005 with whom he had their first child, Mercy in 2011. They waited for many years before Cecilia conceived for the second child in 2015. Sadly, Cecilia died during child birth in April 2016. She bled to death after giving birth to a baby boy. ”I got one of my younger sisters to help her at home when she returns back, and I painted the house in bright colours. I did all I could to make sure that it was comfortable for my wife and our new baby. At the hospital, Cecilia had a prolonged labour, finally giving birth to a 4.6kg baby boy, but she continued bleeding, suffering a postpartum hemorrhage, and at 1:23 am, had died of blood loss” Thompson said A few days after she passed on, the little boy also died. A devasted Thompson buried the little boy in his village and continued with his life, taking care of their daughter Cecilia. A year after his wife’s death, Thompson enrolled for a part-time diploma programme at the Nasarawa State Polytechnic where he met Joy Orkuma, a native of Guma Local Government Area, Benue State. They fell in love, and soon after, she became pregnant for him. When he asked her to marry him, Joy said the only condition would be if he eliminates his daughter, Cecilia. Joy accused Mercy of being a witch and that she might kill her baby after she gives birth. Joy told Thompson that Cecilia usually appears to her in her dream whenever she sleeps over at his house. Thompson carried out the dastard act on February 22nd. While she was sleeping, Thompson carried his six year old daughter and dumped her in a well. His dastard act was discovered by one of their neighbors. Upon his arrest, Thompson said he regrets doing Joy’s bidding. He attributed his heinous action to an overpowering love for Joy and the fear of losing her and the pregnancy she had for him. When contact, Joy who is currently on the run, sounded unrepentant. She said she only told Thompson to take his daughter away since she cannot live in the same house with her. According to her, what Thompson did was the best. “I told him that if I must marry him, Mercy will have to leave,” she asserted, “[because] she always appear in my dreams each time I pass a night in her father’s house. So when I became pregnant for him, I told him that I can’t deliver a baby in the house for Mercy to kill.” she said In the meantime, one of Thompson’s brothers, David Agena, said his elder brother was not the biological father of late Mercy. According to David, the late Cecilia Agena was two months pregnant when she married Thompson. He alleged that while they were dating, Cecilia was seeing two ther men and that when she got pregnant, she forced it on Thompson who took responsibility because he loved her. “We all knew what happened, but that is a long story. I don’t want to talk about that now. No sane human being will kill his daughter because of a girlfriend, [I mean] how can you do a thing like that? Cecilia was a nice woman, godly and hard working; she loved her husband so much, in fact, they both love themselves. I don’t know what came over him. “About three guys, including my elder brother, were dating Cecilia and when she got pregnant. It was confusing who actually was responsible. But she insisted it was my elder brother, who out of love, accepted it and got married to her. Later, we heard that he was not the one. So, there was that problem. But, my elder brother and his late wife were the best of friends. There is no reason for him to do what he has done because of a woman.” David said Thompson is currently in police custody and will be arraigned in court for murder.
  6. Most parents would refuse to entertain the notion they prefer one of their children over the others. But new research suggests that – while they might not openly admit to it – most really do have a favourite child. According to a survey of 1,000 mothers carried out by the online forums Mumsnet and Gransnet, as many as half prefer their youngest child. A quarter cited their firstborn as their favourite. Most who confessed to favouring their youngest child attributed it to older children being more ‘tricky or demanding’. But according to an expert, feeling differently about your children is not something that should cause guilt. ‘Favouritism is one of the last taboos and can provoke a lot of guilt, so it’s important to say that feeling a great affinity for a particular child – often, whichever one is willing to put their shoes on – is fairly common, and doesn’t have to be disastrous,’ Justine Roberts, the founder of Gransnet, told Good Housekeeping. ‘The distilled Mumsnet wisdom on this issue is that lots of parents like their children differently: the crucial thing is to love them all wholly.’ It follows research that indicated one in five mums admit their youngest children were the most likely to believe they are the favourite. The survey of 1,000 UK mothers of one or more children, carried out by One4all, the Post Office gift card, revealed that a fifth of their offspring believe favouritism does exist in families. The survey did, however, find that firstborns still stick closely to their mums, and even in adulthood are most likely to socialise with their mum, inviting them out with their friends and turning to them for advice. Mothers also reported believing that they have the most in common with their oldest child. Meanwhile, it appears that there is some truth in ‘middle children syndrome’ – the idea that middle children receive the least attention – however it could be that this is actually being driven by the children themselves. The research showed that they are the least reliant on mum, even in adulthood. They are the least likely to bring home their dirty laundry, to move back home after moving out, and to turn to the so-called ‘bank of mum and dad’ for handouts. Despite youngest children being in some ways the worst behaved – for example, they are least likely to listen to their mum – they are the most physically affectionate. Survey manager Aoife Davey commented: ‘Mums will worry about everything with their first-born child, but by the time the other children come along, it’s likely they have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood and will be able to relax a lot more. ‘Also, younger siblings will learn from the mistakes their older brothers or sisters will make, and so are likely to be less of a worry to mums.’

  9. Three women have been arrested by the Abia State police command, in connection with the trafficking of a set of twin baby boys in Aba. Ifeoma Ezeanodo was first arrested with the two babies and on interrogation, she could not give a satisfactory account of the babies. She later said she adopted the babies from one Ifeoma Nwogu. According to Punchng, her confession led to the arrest of the second and third suspects. Ezeanodo said she wanted to adopt baby boys since she had only girls. . She said, “I wanted to adopt baby boys to secure my family since I have only girls, but I didn’t know it was illegal people that I was dealing with.” . But Nwogu insisted that she gave the babies to Ezeanodo in order to ensure that they were raised in a good home. Nwogu said, “I have a motherless babies’ home that I registered with the Abia State Ministry of Women Affairs. . A volunteer brought a set of twin baby boys to my home and after asking her the source of the babies, she told me that they were abandoned babies and the best thing to do was to give the babies to a home. . I adopted the babies to a woman who paid me N1.5m and I gave the person that brought the babies to me N500,000 and handed over the baby to the woman.” However, police investigation revealed that Nwogu could not provide the certificate that empowers her to run a motherless babies’ home. A search on her alleged home revealed that there were no motherless children there. . The volunteer, one Onyinyechi Chinedu, who identified herself as a nurse with St. George Hospital in Aba, said one girl had approached her to help give her babies to a woman that could take care of them because she did not have money to take care of them.
