BAUCHI – A 23-year-old woman named Comfort Peter is demanding justice over how she was de­filed by a sergeant with the Nigerian Army serving in Biu Regiment at age of 18 and put in the family way

Narrating her ordeal to newsmen at NUJ Secretar­iat, Bauchi, on Thursday, Comfort said that she met Sergeant Julius Simon in 2017 in Bauchi State when he came for a special operation.

Comfort said that Julius approached her with love advances, but the woman she was working with dis­approved of it, saying that if Julius actually loves her, then he should go to her house and make his intentions known to the family.

Comfort who was 19 and Julius 30 at the time, said when she told Julius, he agreed and starting coming to her house.

“One day, my father saw Julius in army uniform and asked him if he wanted to marry his daughter. Julius agreed but my father said he desired that I further my stud­ies because I had just finished secondary school but Julius promised to marry me.


“When my father asked me to choose between mar­rying and going to school, I said that I preferred to get married. We started court­ship and one day, Julius in­vited me to his house, but I protested. He told me that he has finished his assignment in Bauchi State and will re­turn to Biu in Maiduguri, that was why he wanted to see me before his departure.

“I went to his house and he prevented me from going back to my father’s house that day. I told him that if he does not want me to return to my father’s house, then he should marry me and I will stay with him. He agreed and seized my phone, he forced me to have sex with him that day, Comfort said sobbing bitterly.

Comfort who said that she never knew any man before meeting Julius, added that the next day he asked her to leave, but she told him that was not their agreement.

“He promised to get back to me and take me to live with him. When I came back to my father’s house, he almost killed me that l slept outside. Few days later I stated vom­iting, my father noticed and asked my mother.

“My mother said it was just Malaria, but when I no­ticed that I was pregnant, I ran out of the house to my aunt’s house in Tafawa be­cause my father use to warn his female children that anybody that brought preg­nancy to the house, will be disowned,” She said.

Comfort said that her father was admitted in hospital and when she went to visit him, he burst into tears, adding that she visited Julius twice in Biu but each time she went, he be­came furious and threatened not to marry her again.

She said she has not set her eyes on Julius’ since she gave birth to a baby boy in June 2019 as his number has been switched off.

” I communicated with one of his friends who told me they have been posted to Maiduguri . The friend told me that Julius said he would not marry me again. I could not stop crying because I re­gret going out with Julius’.

‘How can you treat some­one that you said you love like this? Julius has cheated me.I want justice, let him come and be a father to his son because the boy is two years now and is already asking for his father.

“Julius was the one that disvirgined me, he promised to marry me but deceived me. I will never love or trust any man again but he must take care of his son,” Comfort added

Comfort, who came in company with her father, a retired Assistant Superinten­dent of Police Amity, called on the military authority to fish him out and make him responsible to his son, say­ing,”As for me, l no longer love him, I have forgiven him but will not marry him again”
