He would rape me and threaten to kill me if I should reveal it to anyone. His friend who is also our neighbor here in Yetunde Morgan Estate,Ojodu ,has also been having sex with me, even without my consent, since then.Whenever he discovers that my father has gone out either to workplace or somewhere else,Mr.Oha would dash into our apartment and forced me into sex too.He threatened to kill me if I should tell it to anybody . My father and his friend ,Mr.Oha have continued like this since I was six years old till date.
