Family of Six on The Run Over Circumcision Of Her Female Children, Initiation


A family of six residing at Isale Abetu area of Abeokuta, Ogun State had complained of forceful attempt to engage their female children in genital mutilation and initiation.
Speaking on behalf of the family to Journalists recently Mrs Ajidele Rabiat ijeoma said the move was to fulfill family tradition.
According to Mrs Ajidele, she has been facing challenges with her family inlaw as they required herself and her daughters to be circumcised. Also, her sons would be initiated with the blood lost from her and her daughters during circumcision.
She cries for help as this is beyond her power.
Her words, “In a bid to escape painful and senseless female genital mutilation prevalent in my in law family, me and six of my children which include , Ajidele Ibrahim Oluwadamilola, Ajidele Qudroh Oluwabukola,Ajidele Zainab Gbemisola, Ajidele Fatima Yetunde, Ajidele Olanrewaju Mohammed,Ajidele Mazidah Oluwaseyi had to flee for the safety of our children”.
It was learnt that Rabiat who got married to Ajidele, ran away from her matrimonial home, with her children, when she was asked to bring her daughter for the painful and needless circumcision.
The woman ran away with the support of her husband having five children in her possession namely, Ajidele Ibrahim Oluwadamilola,Ajidele Zainab Gbemisola, Ajidele Fatima Yetunde, Ajidele Mohammed Olanrewaju and Ajidele Mazidah, while Ajidele Qudroh Oluwabukola is no where to be found, all efforts to know her whereabout prove abortive.
She is now worried due to the terrible and painful experience their daughter would pass through, if subjected to such mutilation,
