ASABA—ERA Gate Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, has urged the Federal Government to ensure that justice was done for late Elizabeth Ochanya, stressing the need to take proactive steps to tackle the problem of child abuse in the country.
Miss Elizabeth Ochanya, a 13-year-old student of Federal Government Girls College, FGGC, in Gboko, Benue State, died of medical complications after she was sexually violated by a father and son.
The founder of the organisation, Mrs Eseoghene Atie, told newsmen the foundation was set to launch this week in Benin City, Edo State with the mandate to eradicate child abuse in Nigeria.
At the launch which was themed Say No and Speak Out, the organisation would be in memory of Elizabeth Ochanya, and is aimed at advocating zero tolerance for child abuse in the country. She also said that the NGO was being flagged off after several laudable achievements that it had recorded since it was created last year.
