Although, she claims to be an advocate for violence against women and girls, Ada Onyejike Ananaba has been arrested for a crime of violence.
A 10-year old girl was rescued in Ada’s home following a report of maltreatment and denying her education.
“She is up as early as 5am sweeping the house and even up till 11pm. You need to see all the marks on her body; horrible! She gets beaten up by Ananaba all the time; morning beatings are customary. This is a very serious case of human trafficking.”
Ananaba reportedly registered the girl in a private school when she brought her to Lagos from the eastern part of the country, but later stopped her and made her take her children to and from school everyday.
The founder of the Girl Child Art Foundation, Ada claims her NGO empowers more than 17,000 girls with skills. She also claims that her NGO have been used to improve the education and future of vulnerable girls in Nigerian communities.
