Would You see Rape?


Nnamdi is one of those busy fathers who gets home mostly in the dead of the night, after the rigours of Lagos traffic.On one of the days he comes home early, he comes upon his son Timothy crying in the dark in his room. For days, he refuses to say what is wrong, whilst complaining of pains and aches in an attempt it seems to avoid school. Nnamdi wonders if this silent treatment is because he warned him about being too friendly with Damilola, the neighbours daughter and other female classmates and also went ahead to reduce his allowance.Two weeks later, Timothy’s principal calls with a request for a meeting. In the meeting, Nnamdi is informed that Timothy was raped by a set of older male students, who have been arrested. Timothy says they threatened to kill him with a knife and had been living in fear. What should Nnamdi do?
