The family of 12 years old Keren-Happuch Aondodoo Akpagher, a boarding student of Premiere Academy Lugbe, Abuja who died on Tuesday, 22 June, 2021.
Network Against Domestic Violence Foundation has taken up the matter on behalf of the family.
Reports have it that the victim couldn’t walk from the hostel to class and had to be helped by her friends to write her test in tears on Wednesday, 16 June, 2021.
On Saturday 19/06/21, she complained that she had an eye infection and called her mother to be picked for medical attention.
The school would not release her but transported her to the clinic where her mother met her and facilitated her treatment.
Aondodoo was distraught when she learnt she would be going back to the school. Her mother called and texted the principal and the matron for over four hours asking for them to release her but they refused initially saying she will have to stay in isolation for seven days on her return. But they finally allowed her to follow her mother home.
Her mother who initially was not keen on taking her that Saturday, 19 June changed her mind when her school mother informed her that Aondodoo couldn’t walk to school on the the previous day and was supported by two friends to write her test in tears.
On getting home with her mother on that Saturday, she took ill on Sunday night, 20 June, 2021 and was rushed to Queens Clinic, Wuse, Abuja, on Monday, 21 June, 2021, a discharge was observed from her vagina and was found to be condom after a lab test.
Her urine test revealed dead spermatozoa and she died early hours of Tuesday, 22 June, 2021 from hyperglycemia triggered by sepsis resulting from the infection caused by the condom in her.
The family had to cry out for justice as the school is trying to cover up the matter.
