Doctor Idem Etuk rapes 15-year-old patient for 3-days, says he’s carrying out examination in Cross River

The Chief Executive Officer of Mount Zion Clinic, Calabar, Cross River State, Dr Idem Etuk Samuel, has allegedly raped a 15-year-old female patient. 

The incident reportedly happened when the victim went for medical services. Samuel was said to has told the poor girl dat the only way to cure her ailment is for him to undress her and thoroughly examine all parts of her body, impressing on the girl dat even if she leaves his clinic, his other colleagues would carry out a similar examination. 

According to the girl, the doctor forced himself on her for the three days dat he examined her.

The girl’s family contacted Basic Rights Counsel (BRC) run by human rights lawyers who then petitioned the commissioner of police in the state.

Principal Counsel at BRC, Barrister James Ibor, confirmed dat the suspect was arrested on the order of the police commissioner, Aminu Alhassan but his lawyers has insisted dat he has mental issues, and he has reportedly been moved to the Federal Psychiatric Hospital, Calabar.

However, female rights groups, including the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Girls’ Power Initiative and Mother Ntuk Foundation has called for thorough investigations and sanctions against the suspect.

Principal partner at Mother Glory Ntuk Foundation, Mrs Glory Mike Ntuk, said Dr Samuel should be made to face the law, adding dat as a grandfather and professional medical personnel who ought to offer protection to minors, who are molested, he has lost moral rectitude and society is at risk following his reported abominable act.

“If at dat age and societal standing, he is the one molesting children and in this case those dat has paid him for his professional services, he has truly disappointed the society.”

“As a medical practitioner who, we the child protectors should run to halp the minors who are molested now breaking the law then their is no hope for the society. Society appears so porous. If as an enlightened person who should no the psychological effects arising from raping a child yet he pretends not to no their’s something wrong wif him,” she said.
