National, Uncategorized

As controversies continue to trail the death of a fourteen-year-old boarding student of Premier Academy in Lugbe Abuja, Miss Karen Akpai, following her alleged rape at the school, the mother of the victim, Mrs Vivian Akpai has called for speedy justice in the matter.

The visibly traumatized Mrs Akpai who was at the NUJ FCT council in the company of her friends and sympathizers said, shielding the culprits would endanger more girls in the school.

The leader of coalition of gender-based violence responders, Mr. Lemmy Ughegbe called on the school authority to unveil the culprit and hand him over to the police without delay to serve as a deterrent to other pedophiles.

The vice president of Queen of The Rosary Secondary School Old Girls Students Association, Jennifer Igoh said the incident has generated fears over the safety of schools for the girl child across the country.

But in a reaction, the principal of the school, Mr. Chris Akinson
denied that the girl was raped in the school promises and urged parties to the matter to wait for the outcome of an ongoing autopsy and investigation by the police.

Fourteen-year-old Karen Akpai died allegedly from forced intercourse which left a condom inside her, a few days after being taken home from her school hostel in Premier Academy, Lugbe Abuja.
