The death of a 14-year-old schoolgirl earlier this year has sparked outrage as the #JusticeForKaren trends on Twitter.
Nigerian Journalist, David Hundeyin has revealed that a 14-year-old female boarding student in Premier College, Lugbe, Abuja, Miss Karen-Happuch Aondodoo Akpagher was raped inside school premises, leading to her excruciatingly painful death by sepsis earlier this year.
A used condom was found inside her before her death. She is yet to get justice.
Read Hundeyin’s Twitter post below.
This is Keren-Happuch Aondodoo Akpagher, a 14 year-old student of Premiere Academy, Lugbe, Abuja who died of sepsis earlier this year. A used condom was found inside her. The school has successfully stonewalled and prevented all information from emerging. I know because I tried.
Her mom is on my WhatsApp and I lose the will to live everytime she puts up a story, because it’s always about her daughter. This is her current profile picture where she is pleading with fellow parents and other students to speak up. So far, nothing.
This is what Nigeria is in 2021. A school that costs N750,000+ per term has had a 14 year-old female boarding student raped on its premises, leading to her excruciatingly painful death by sepsis. But because it is linked to power, her mom is left to fight alone.
If you’re wondering why this school has been able to keep this scandal contained, a peek behind the curtain at who owns it provides an answer.
