Premiere Academy: Activists Hold Rally, Demand Justice For Girl Raped In School

Published

on

A rally has been staged in Abuja by members of the Coalition Against Gender-Based Violence over the death of a Senior Secondary School One student of Premiere Academy, Keren Akpagher.

The SS1 student of the school located in Lugbe died after she was allegedly raped by an unknown person with a condom left in her private part.

To seek justice for the deceased, the coalition gathered at the Unity Fountain on Friday brandishing placards and banners with various inscriptions while dressed in black.

This is despite a letter issued by the Nigeria Police to the leader of the coalition and Convener, Men Against Rape Foundation, Lemmy Ugbhegbe, accusing him of “inciting public disturbance.”

Addressing newsmen, Ugbhegbe stated that his life is under threat and that he has vacated his house after it was visited by people he failed to mention.

He, however, vowed that the movement seeking justice for the deceased cannot be suppressed.

He said, “The letter they sent to me inviting me to the police, they wrote my name very wrongly and they addressed it to Babylove School in Lugbe. I am not addressing you or the police in the capacity of Babylove. All the statements I have issued on behalf of the coalition were at the instance of Men Against Rape Foundation.

“The fact that they have gone to my house… and as I talk to you hoodlums are all around the environment now. I feel unsafe and if anything happens to me or any member of my family, please hold the Deputy Commissioner of Police, FCT, Mr. Fom Pam Joseph responsible. This movement cannot be quenched, we must seek justice for Keren and that is our determination.

“All we are interested in is that the school be thoroughly investigated, not just for crime against Keren but also there are a series of crimes that have occurred.”
