Ezekiel, who is married and has two children, both girls, was said to have threatened the survivors that he would kill them if they spoke up. One of the survivor’s, who cried that he didn’t want to die, said,
“He always used olive oil to rub my anus then put his manhood inside. I always cry because it is painful.”
