BIZARRE: RAPED, PREGNANT BUT STILL A VIRGIN...

This story was obtained from Vanguard newspaper, I've decided to share via copy and paste method so you LV readers would get everything undiluted. I call it December 31st wonder....Pls read on

By Ishola Balogun
A teenage lady whose virginity was said to be intact after being tested positive of pregnancy is in a dilemma. Her story though far from the Biblical narrative of the Virgin Mary, strikes the mind on the possibility of remaining a virgin after she was raped by her own cousin, leaving her hymen intact but resulted in a pregnancy.

Chinelo, a fair-complexioned young lady, darting nervously between the floor and her hands narrated to Saturday Vanguard how her second cousin, Onyeka, put her in the family way. She had gone to her mother's cousin's house in Ihiala, Anambra state for her UME exams and had slept on the same bed with her second cousin, Onyeka.

According to her, she woke up late that fateful morning and found herself wet with semen. She asked Onyeka what it meant but he was said to have waved it off as nothing important. Chinelo, naive, accepted his excuse and moved on.

"I woke very late, very dizzy even his mother noticed and asked me whether I was feeling alright that morning. I told her I was okay but when I went to the bathroom, I discovered I was wet but did not feel any pain. I asked him but he smiled and waved it off. I did not disclose to anybody. I just cleaned up.

"I finished my mensuration five days before then. I also wrote my NECO there but left after a week I finished my exams. I went back to Onitsha, and on the 27th of July, I came to Lagos to my sister's house. There I missed my period. I told her and she advised that we should wait for some days, saying it might be a shift," Chinelo said.

Chinelo began to notice symptoms of pregnancy after a month. "A month later, I felt sick. My sister and I thought it was malaria. But what later convinced my sister was when I started vomitting. Our neighbour advised we should go to the hospital. My sister obliged and we went to General Hospital, Aguda. They even gave me money for the test.

"It was on Sunday, so the lab personnel did not come. We returned home and went back the following day. A test was conducted and we waited for about 30 minutes. When the result came out, they wrote 'malaria not seen and pregnancy positive'.

"While waiting, my sister had also taken her sick daughter to see a doctor. I approached a woman sitting close to me to explain the result to me and she looked at me and asked whose result was it, saying it indicates pregnancy. When my sister came, I gave it to her and she asked how come I became pregnant.

"I told her I didn't know that I didn't have a boyfriend. She took me to their head nurse who also is a counsellor. She tried to convince me but I maintained my position knowing it was the truth. They decided to take a virginity test on me with the aid of a machine. The result came out and it was confirmed that I am still virgin," she narrated.

Then the pressure came. The medical team and her sister probed further and Chinelo broke the ice saying: "I remembered the incident in my aunty's house and I asked whether if someone was wet without making love could result into pregnancy? They asked me who was with me and I told them how I saw myself wet that morning when I woke up. I further told them how I drank the juice and slept off. I did not know what happened again.

The medical team and her sister concluded that pregnancy could occur without a penetrative intercourse since her virginity was intact. But Chinelo maintained she had no idea of how it happened as she suspected she must have been drugged with the juice she was served after dinner.

In a raspy voice pausing briefly and looking down again, she continued, "They asked me to call him (my cousin) and tell him the situation to know his reaction. I did and I threathend I was going to tell everybody what he did if he did not tell me the truth. He pleaded that he would call me back.


Miss Chinelo
He immediately sent a text massage to me, recommending some drugs to terminate the pregancy, asking me to go get it and take it immediately. I called him back asking him if he did not know anything about why he sent such message to me? I later got to know that everybody in the family took him on and he confessed to have done it.

Since then, he stopped picking my calls until last two weeks when I called him accusing him of causing my problem."

She stated that it was not the first time she would sleep on the same bed with Onyeka but insisted she did not know how he did it.

Chinelo has already gained admission to study Mass communication at Delta State University, Abraka, Delta State but she would have to suspend her quest for further studies pending the delivery of the baby sometime in March 2012, all things being equal.

She however explained that the incident was too painful to contemplate but she had forgiven him, and would relate with him well anytime they meet again. Her words: "Forgiveness is of the Lord. I have already forgiven him. Recently, some people were of the view that I should call him with another number and reign curses on him but I said no.

"So also, when some of my brothers decided to involve the police, my mother objected, saying they should allow the sleeping dog to lie. Even if I see him anywhere I will relate with him well, I have forgiven him," she said as her words fall over each other in a bid to assemble.

The overwhelmed lady is currently taking refuge at the Tamar Rescue Foundation, Lagos, a non-governmental organisation that sensitizes young girls on the menace of sexual abuse and rape and offers advice to victims and mentors them through lectures, seminars and empowerment programs.

Mrs Ugo Onwuraokoye the founder of the foundation, an Igbo also from Anambra state, said: "In Igboland, such incest is termed as alu (abomination) and I understand the young man who did this is having problems with his business and his whole life, just because this is an abomination. This is incest and because it is an abomination. It has its own curses."

She disclosed that Chinelo would have to be with her pending the delivery of the baby. "They brought her to me and I have to accept the challenge because that is what my ministry Tamar Rescue Foundation is all about. Her story will teach others some lessons because some don't know that playing around even without penetration can result into pregnancy because sperm swims.

It is one of the miracles of becoming a pregnant virgin. Her admission is through but she cannot go back to school now untill she delivers the baby. She will be here with us and after the delivery, Tamar Rescue will adopt the baby and she will continue with her studies," Onwuraokoye said.

According to her: "Everyday a child is being raped. Since I started I have only been able to go 80 schools to sensitize them. Like the case of this girl, it is as a result of sheer ignorance, she didnt know and it occured five days after her menstrual period.

Again, granted that it happened, there is a drug you can take immediately to prevent pregnance and of course sexual transmited diseases within 24 hours. If she had been aware, she would have talked to an adult and immediately, something would have been done would have been done to prevent this situation.

"Right now, she may not understand the full implication, she can't go to school, her admission is out but she cant go until after she delivers the baby and other distractions that will follow it. By January 10, she will be six months gone in this pregnancy and yet she has not started anti-natal classes because there is no money, they just brought her to me.

And as it is, the parents are trying to be careful because in Igboland, this is an abomination. This is a shame. You see, everyday my heart aches because parents and children are acting in ignorance. I cannot allow my daughter to go to my sister's house where I know my sister has a grown up son and sleep in the same room. I cant allow that because I am aware."

She adviced that parents should always teach their children ways of avoiding this vices, adding that some parents want their daughters to look trendy allowing them to wear cloths that expose their bodies, noting that the heart evil men around is thinking a different thing; they are not looking at the young girl as a child but as a woman.

Doctors speak

It's not possible!— Dr. Akeem Agboola of Life Fountain Clinic, Lagos

We only have one virgin Mary and I don't know about any other. Girls come here with such claim and by the time you test them, you will discover that it is all lies. For me, until you confirm from the doctor who tested her virginity, I can't believe the story. If she's pregnant and claims to have been raped, it means that there was penetration.

I also don't believe that pregnancy can occur by merely playing around the virgina without penetration because there must have been a penetration before an ejaculation and the sperm will locate where the cervica opening is and locate where the egg is before there can be pregnancy. In the absence of this, sombody claiming that sperm was splashed on the virgin or something, and resulted in preganacy, I won't accept that.

Yes! It's possible — Prof. Oladapo Ashiru of Medical Art Centre, Maryland, Lagos

It is possible. The virgina is not a big passage, it is like a hole and anything can go through, sperm can also go through. If she is at the peak, it is possible without penetration though it requires a little bit of penetration and that also can still leave the hymen unbroken. So, it is possible the hymen is still there.

Dr. Odiboh, an Obsterician said it is possible without penetration but advised that the days of the incident be confirmed and that the tests should conducted again.

One of the doctors at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital who prefered said: "You do not have to have sexual intercourse to be impregnated. Sperm can swim up the vagina if they are strong enough. The chances are, of course, much less likely but it's still possible.

Any time sperm comes into contact with the vagina, there is a chance of pregnancy. However, the chance is obviously much larger when the semen is shot into the vagina, as opposed to just rubbed on the outside of it. The chances of a girl getting pregnant from a minimal amount of sperm touching the outside of her vagina is very slim."

A further research on the issue revealed that one does not have to get involved into a sexual activity or intercourse, to be precise, for getting pregnant. All that is required is for impregnation is the sperms of a male partner that swim up to the vaginal opening and seek entry.

Most sperms are not capable of doing this, since they cannot survive in the atmospheric temperature. But some viable and strong ones do it. Such chances are, of course, slim, yet possible is everything. Also, if there is intentional sexual activity, but without penetration, then the released sperms can find some medium to reach up the female vagina and begin to act.

Since, signs of pregnancy are seen in later months after having the impregnating intercourse, there is no way of recognizing that a female has become pregnant without losing her virginity. It is simple. If the ejaculation of a female's male sexually partner reaches her vagina, though there had no penetration taken place, then she can get pregnant and remain a virgin.

One more reason for appearance of cases of females getting pregnant, without losing their virginity, is the artificial insemination technique. Many females try artificial insemination when their sexual attempts to give birth to a baby are unsuccessful.

Some do it before even trying the intercourse because of fear and pain. If artificial insemination can resut in pregnancy, then it is possible that pregnancy can occur without penetration. Artificial insemination is nothing but injecting a sperm into a female vagina.

A sperm can live up to 24 hours after it is ejaculated out of the male body and before it begins its action of hatching the female egg. If, within these 24 hours it reaches inside a female vagina and begins its job, then there are quite favorable chances that she would get pregnant, though her virginity is intact. Thus, just being virgin does not guarantee one of a 'no' on pregnancy reports. But rather than that, follow the simple rule of never bringing the male genital organs near a female's, if you really do not want to face an unwanted pregnancy, especially a virgin.

THIERRY HENRY TO REJOIN ARSENAL

34 year old french footballer, Henry Thienry is fully set to rejoin his former club, Arsenal football club. The striker who after leaving Arsenal in 2007 went to Spain's Barcelona football club and then New York Red Bull has started training with the rest of the arsenal team.
Speaking on his return, Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger stated that the club is happy to have him back adding that his reputation is not on the line.
"You can never take away from people what they have done, that will remain forever. Nobody expects him to be what he was 10 years ago, we just want him to help out."
"I think it is just credit to him to want to be helpful to a club that has given him so much. Therefore I feel there is no special pressure to be the player he was before."
"I believe our fans are happy that players who have done well for the club want to help out again. That is very positive," he said.
"We had that before and it shows that Arsenal have a special link with our players because we had Sol Campbell and Jens Lehmann who helped out for a while and did very well. Now we have Thierry. It is a continuity of the special link with our former players and they are all happy that Thierry is coming back, too. You can always learn in life from people who have the knowledge he has. That was one of the reasons why we brought Jens Lehmann and Sol Campbell back. They have a weight in the dressing room." He affirmed.

FUNNY, OLD PICTURES OF NIGERIAN CELEBRITIES

Okies. This is different and I hope u find it hilarious. See how our stars looked when they were young. Let's analyze one by one:

1) Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie-Senior Mercy's(3rd from left) baggy trousers, poise, haircut point to the fact that she was an authentic senior, who would have thought that the well-endowed actress once looked like this (well, I refuse to judge her by her 'past'.lol)

2) Musician, Susan Harvey a.k.a Goldie- So, Sisto Goldie once suffered hair-drought. The few ones on her head shouting Halleluyah together with her shimmering forehead makes this picture look funny.

3)Musician Timaya-The self-acclaimed Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa's mouth and ears in this picture is something to 'text home about'.

4)Musician Panshak Zamani, known as Ice Prince obviously got the folder and school uniform from a senior in SS3 and if I may ask, ow many ladies fell in love with him after seeing him on shades?

5)On Air Personality, Tosin Bucknor looked like a strict health prefect in this picture. Sure some juniors avoided her wahala.lol

6)Nollywood actor-Segun Arinze-only his size has changed, he still an 'overSEEer'.

7)Presenter Denrele Edun-so Denrele has been like this since he was 2, I'm sure he personally requested for socks instead of clothes and I'm sure he graced birthday occassions like this.smh (Now I know better)

8)Ex Beauty Queen and rapper Munachi Abii- this was supposed to be a birthday party or something, I understand Munachi was dancing but was she thinking she could 'uproot' the dance floor by doing this. You are outstanding joor.

9)Rapper Jude Abaga a.k.a MI-looked so much like a 10/10 boy. He looked like somebody who doesn't look for other people's trouble and would sit on a spot for 5hours without uttering a word but now??sigh

10) Musician Bankole Wellington a.k.a Banky W must have nursed the idea of being a footballer, this one that he was dribbling nobody, that must be the fifth time he 'escaped' from his sitting position.

11) Comedia Teju Oyelakun a.k.a Teju Babyface- take a look at this picture well, something tells me Teju looked like a piece of puff-puff or a drowned Agege bread. I will follow my mind.

12)Musician- Prince shared some of MI's attributes, gentle or quite but maybe uncomfortable with the dreads.

CHINESE TO MAKE DROGBA WORLD'S RICHEST PLAYER.

A chinese named eGuangzhou Evergrande is fully set to make 33 year-old chelsea striker, Didier Drogba the world's richest player beating Samuel Eto's £350,000 a week record if he joins the club.
Though the Ivorian's contract expires at the end of the season, he wants a longer deal than the one-year offer on the table at Stamford Bridge.
Interested in Drogba include Tottenham, AC Milan, Shanghai Shenhua, Dalian Aerbin. Dalian Aerbin is offering a three-year deal worth £30million Or £200,000 a week - but Super League champions Evergrande is prepared to pay more than Eto'o £350,000 a week.
Speaking about the offers, Drogba's agent, Thierno Seydi stated that 'he's had the offer of a one-year extension from Chelsea, but that does not suit us. At his age, he has nothing left to prove as a player. Once you are well into your thirties, you have to go to a club where you can be certain you'll be able to pay your bills.
He will go where he is offered the most money. It could be the United States, Qatar, Russia or somewhere in Asia.
He'll go wherever he feels good from a financial point of view.'

The offers aint bad at all, why am I not related to either Drogba or Eto'o?

NIGERIAN CHILDREN WRITE PRES. GOODLUCK JONATHAN

I know President Goodluck has a lot of photographs but I purposely selected this. And to some extent, this was exactly the way we felt yesterday.
Following yesterday's bombings, association of concerned Nigerian children penned their feelings to the President, let's just hope he gets this.


Dear Mr. President,

We should say Merry Christmas but we are not your goverment, we are not in the business of deception. After almost ten hours of gathering your thoughts to speak on the bomb blasts that rocked the nation yesterday, you still fell short of your own very low standards. What did you intend to say when you said Bomb Blasts are a burden we must live with? Why do you bother to budget over a trillion for security if we must live the burden of insecurity? How come you are still a president? We do not blame you, we blame our older ones who were stupid enough to think that where you come from and your religion was all you needed to be a competent president.

They are crying now. We all cried yesterday on the darkest Christmas day of our short lives. While we cried and left Christmas postponed for another year, we watched as you danced your life away like there was no tomorrow. Is it true that all you care about is the fact that you are the president so whatever can happen should happen. Last night we prayed for you. We prayed that the white men should be able to make common sense so that we can budget for it and then you will have it in abundance. As it is, it is obvious sir that you are grossly lacking in common sense. If you weren't, you would never come out to tell a mourning nation that it should get ready to live with the burden of destruction and insecurity. That was utterly insensitive and even the dumbest of our mates, fellow Nigerian children would never descend that low to an unprecedented level of cluelessness.

We understand this is not a sane country, if this was a sane country, your ilk will not be in a job. Your security chiefs, yourself and your cabinet would have been throwing resignation letters left right and centre.

But then, here is a place where people are satisfied with just being in positions, that they are clueless about what to do in such positions does not matter.

Mr. President, Boko Haram defeated you in 2011. What plans are you making for 2012? Do you realise they have since improved while your security tactics remain stop and search? Do you realise they are far more coordinated than ever before? Have you thought of engaging more intelligence in curbing this menace instead of just mere brute? Yes, you have issues with concentrating for long, why not budget for a concentrator? That way you are conditioned to at least focus on being the president of Nigeria instead of our national chief chef? You are wondering where that came from? It came from cassava bread sir. You chose the menu for 2012 but we hope you realise that Boko Haram certainly has a menu.

Please Mr. President, they will look to attack again in the New Year, do what you have never done before, get your security chiefs to pretend that by all means. Contrary to your assertion, we are not prepared to live with the burden of bomb blasts. Get yourself to work as stop excusing your inability to deal with Boko Haram on the premise that they are a necessity. What is that? If you cannot lead and be a president, help yourself and resign. Please take your vice-president along. You are a twin set of incompetence.

This letter has been written with kind words, not because we are in the mood to be nice to you but because we are children and respect is a value we want to live with but our lack of it sometimes is a burden you must live with as long as you force us to live with your Boko Haram burden.

We wrote you a letter on subsidy yesterday but we figured it would be better to send this before you get our other letter. As long as your cluelessness reigns supreme in this country, we will always remind you of our angst and stake in this nation. It is not by force to live in Aso Rock. So if you must, do the right things, say the right things and learn to get the basic things right.

The Bomb Blasts darkened our Christmas but your response dampened our mood even further. This is not the way to lead a people. If you need help, we will nominate one of us to offer you words of wisdom for free. As it is, you look overwhelmed by the mere job of providing security for Nigeria let alone the other duties you swore to carry out for Nigeria.

Action point: Sack yourself sir, and take Arc. Namadi Sambo along. It is a good place to start.

Signed:

Association of Conscious Nigerian Children (ACNC)

15-MATCH BAN: "I WILL NOT APPEAL"- SAMUEL ETO'O

Samuel Eto'O
Samuel Eto'O doesn't look like someone who could hurt a fly right? Was equally shocked when I read this. Anyways, the Camerounian was accused of instigating the indomitable lions (of Cameroun) to boycot an international friendly match against Algeria in November. And in view of that, the Disciplinary Committee of Cameroun's Football Federation have decreed that for contravening Articles 8 and 10 of the body which demands compliance with the rule of unalloyed loyalty to Cameroun as far as international duty is concerned, the 30 year-old captain would be banned from participating in 15 international matches.
The world's highest paid footballer who was however given 10 days to appeal said he has no intention of appealing the decision of his nation's FA committee.

Ladies who are intent on giving their hair a first-class treatment should look no further. Hair by Hair, the newest and perhaps one of the funkiest hair studios in the country was launched on 10th December, 2011 at Victoria Island, Lagos. Cited close to the Bar Beach, the classy Hair by Hair Studio boasts of departments like braids centre, a cove with the state of art facilities mainly for fixing braids and stuffs, the retail centre which offers virtually everything a lady might need as far as hair, cosmetics and other accessories are concerned, a make-up studio as well as a photo studio. There are also hair clinics, manicure and pedicure centre, VIP lounge/bar overlooking the ocean.
