A school named after late Ochanya Elizabeth by the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, will have renovation works kicked off with immediate effect on the order of the governor.
According to reports, the governor gave the directive to the Executive Secretary of the State Universal Basic Education Board, Philip Attachin, to give the school in the village of the late Ochanya a face-lift and then name it after her.
Recall that the 13-year-old Elizabeth Ochanya died of complications arising from the rape allegedly carried out by a father and son.
“I have instructed the SUBEB boss to give facelift to the LGEA primary school, Ogene Amejo in Okpokwu local government area where the late Ochanya who was allegedly raped by her uncle and son had her primary education.
“We shall provide all instructional materials for the school and name it after her,” Ortom said.
On the release of the former Livestock Guard Coordinator, Alhaji Aliyu Teshaku, who was arrested and detained by the Department of State Services, the governor said he had been vindicated.
“I inherited Teshaku from the previous administration. I do not know why he was arrested and then released. I met with him and he told me that he was released on bail,” Ortom said.
