The death of a 13 years old girl identified as Ochanya Elizabeth Ogbanje, who was allegedly raped by a father and son in the Gboko area of Benue state, has led to a protest by some Nigerians on Thursday.
Andrew Ugbokolo, a staff at Benue State Polytechnic, and his son, Victor, a final-year student of Animal Production at the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, were said to have serially abused the 13-year-old since she was eight.Medical examination showed that Ochanya developed vesicovaginal fistula, a condition in which she continuously dripped urine, following damage to her bladder.
Some protesters, consisted of human rights activists, civil society organisations and students, who were clad in black t-shirts, marched to the Ministry of Justice in Abuja, to demand that those who perpetrated the act are brought to book.
