5-year-old Kadijah M. Saccoh and her 8-year-old sister were living with their aunt and her son in her home in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

Kadijah’s parents were living apart. The father, Saccoh, is living in the U.S. and had been trying to take Kadijah, a U.S. citizen, with him to the U.S. but couldn’t because a Judge prevented him from doing so as the mother was not in support.

Kadijah and her sister remained with their aunt, who is the elder sister of Kadijah’s mum.

Sadly, their cousin began raping Kadijah’s elder sister and Kadijah.

According to reports, when the aunt found out her son had raped Kadijah’s sister, she hid it from the children’s parents and treated the girl herself.

Her son then raped Kadijah and she hid that too and tried treating the girl. Unfortunately, Kadijah died and the aunt tried to bury her hurriedly.

According to reports, the aunt informed Kadijah’s father’s family about the death of the girl after which she asked for permission to bury the child, but the father insisted that he wanted to know the cause of the death.

The father urged his family to take the corpse for a postmortem. The postmortem result showed that the girl was raped multiple times. The father then asked that his older daughter be taken for a test too and it showed that she had been raped too.

The aunt and her son have both been arrested and people are seeking justice for Kadijah with the hashtags #JusticeForKadijahSaccoh and #JusticeForKadijah.
