Nigerians Protest The Death Of 13-Year-Old Girl Who Was Serially Raped By Her Uncle and His Son For Five Years

The  heartbreaking death of a 13-year old girl, Elizabeth Ochanya Ogbaje, has taken Nigerians to the street demanding for justice.

According to online reports, Elizabeth died from serious health complications including Vesicovaginal Fistula, after she was raped for  five years by her Aunty’s husband, Andrew Ogbuja and his son, Victor Ogbuja.

Her Aunty claims she had no knowledge of what was happening.

Andrew is the Head of Department, Catering and Hotel Management at the Benue State Polytechnic, Benue State, and his son, Victor is a final year student of Animal Production at the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi.

While Victor is on the run, Andrew was remanded in prison by a court in Markurdi but has been released and is now on the run.

Some Nigerians, however, organised a protest to see that both Andrew and Victor are made to face the law. Tagged #JusticeForOchanya, the protest took place this morning in Abuja.

In a chat with Daily Post, human rights activist and Executive director, Cee-Hope Nigeria, Betty Abah said, “Rape by father and son, anal and vagina, started when she went to stay with the family at age 8 (wife is her aunt) in order to be able to go to school. She died October 18, 2018 at the General Hospital, Otukpo from the complications and was buried Oct. 21, 2018 in her village in Benue State, following an autopsy.”

Both men and women are also tweeting about the incidence to the attention of the government.

      Omoye Hajara Yakubu oh I’m very sure she knew. But she wants to be a “wise woman that builds hee home” so she kept quiet. They should arrest her too. There is a special place in hell waiting for that woman and her useless family.

      It’s not possible that she didn’t know. 5years is a long time. Tell tale signs psychologically on the girls part will show. Her aunt is very culpable.

      Namuyiga Dorcas As far as am concerned, a woman knows when something is wrong in the household. She knew, and am sure like some women they will keep quiet just to save their marriage, any woman that is like this, it’s only God that will punish them. She is an accomplice and will suffer the same consequences too

      #justiceforochanya The point is people should care more for those alive so they won’t have to lose another girl child the I don’t care attitude of Nigerians is tooo much prevention is better than cure, I love the fact that people wants justice but do they care to look out for other girls in the same problem example you have information s about NGOs looking after girls and other related stuffs you see a girl sleeping on the street and you drove pass or ignore if such girl dies are you telling me you did your part has a good citizen ,what about raising generations of child beggars people don’t really care I tell you…

      Chloe Hadiza Umar More than this walk for ochanya, I think there should be more sensitization in schools and communities concerning issues. Talk to children and parents about it. Make the children understand that they could speak out without any dangers. This case is happening everywhere everyday and needs to abolished. Parents should be educated on how to be more observant and take precautions at every sight. Many victims are still out there suffering. I really wish every paedophiles will just drop dead right now.😭😭😭😭

This is a wake up call for us all,not to entrust our children in anyone’s care. May we not encounter any setback that will make our children be at Mercy of people’s help. I pray justice is served for d girl and the culprits brought to book.
