Governor Ortom Names School After 13-Year-Old Rape Victim, Ochanya

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has directed the immediate renaming of the LGEA Primary School, Ogene -Amejo in Edumoga, Okpokwu local government area of the state after 13-year old Miss Ochanya Ogbanje who was reportedly raped to death by her uncle and his son.

The Governor who announced the decision while briefing newsmen at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi, said the action was to immortalize the late Miss Ochanya considering the circumstances that led to her death.

He also directed the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, to carry out massive renovation work on the primary school to accord it a befitting standard.

Governor Ortom expressed the hope that when the Universal Basic Education Commission, UBEC, eventually releases its counterpart contribution to march the state government counterpart funding of N3.3 billion already deducted at source from the last tranche of Paris Club refund to the state, it would help to further improve infrastructure at the primary education level.
