International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Plateau State chapter in collaboration with the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) on Friday June 08, 2018 protested the alleged sexual molestation of orphans by a director of an orphanage, Stephen Centre International in Abeokuta, Ogun State. 

During the protest, the women presented a letter of complaint to the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Peter Azi, urging the legislators to investigate the charges against the director, Isaac Oluwole. According to the letter, the official had ‘severally’ molested orphans put in his care, following the deaths of their parents from the protracted civil unrest in North-east Nigeria.

“The immoral events became possible through the nefarious activities of the director in the school, Rev Isaac Oluwole Newton-Wusu, who at a point derailed and decided to take undue advantage of the children of the centre,” the letter said in part.

The letter alleged that over 20 female students were sexually molested by the director, while the male students on the other hand were subjected to dehumanising and excruciating labour.

Part of the demands by FIDA and NAWOJ include setting up of a committee by the lawmakers to investigate the allegations.

It also demanded the relocation of the children from the centre to”a more secured place were proper and close watch would be available.”

While receiving the letter, the speaker, Peter Azi, said the legislature will send a delegation to the said orphanage to ascertain the true condition of the orphans. Mr Azi said the lawmakers would work with their Ogun counterparts to rescue the orphans.
