I Called Him Dad
To stop the molestation of the girl child that is now prevalent in our society, Fatima Ishiaku decided to speak out to tell her story, not for gains or popularity but to let people know that the girl child molestation and abuse are real.
She was sexually abused before the age of five, till she was fourteen years old. At age five he was using his finger on me, at seven that was when he started penetrating inside of me. How I almost killed myself, how I lived on alcohol, how my mother treated me so badly.
Now I’m using my story to help victims like me, to help them break their silence by speaking out and also to let the world know what sexually abused girls go through mostly in Nigeria and also to let people know that victims should not be bullied. I believe my book will help victims speak out and also open the eyes of society to see what victims go through that way people can help them and not bully them. Mothers in Africa believed victims should keep quiet because they see this act as a taboo while the victims die in silence. This book is about saving the girl child by breaking the silence.
Her name is Fatima Ishiaku and this is her story.
