Protesters of the death of Keren Akpagher, a Secondary School student, summoned by police for “inciting public disorder.”
The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Department has issued an invitation to activists preparing to protest Keren Akpagher’s death.
Keren Akpagher, an SS1 student at Premiere Academy in Lugbe, Abuja, was allegedly raped by unknown individuals.
She died on June 22, 2021, from hyperglycemia-induced sepsis, an illness brought on by the condom found inside her dead corpse.
Nigerians were outraged by her testimony, and organizers organised a rally for July 9 to bring attention to the tragedy and demand justice.
However, on Thursday, July 8, the Police issued a memo with the reference number 3000/FCT/X/D9/ VoL 62/38 inviting the demonstrators.
Keren Akpagher was reportedly raped at school, although her parents were unaware of the occurrence.
Premiere’s management has denied that the autopsy that led to Keren’s death indicted the school.
According to ASP Mariam Yusuf, Public Relations Officer for the FCT Police, an investigation is underway.
Bala Ciroma, the Commissioner of Police, assured the people that the inquiry will be professional, fair, and thorough. The CP urged everyone involved to be calm, let the law take its course, and wait for more information.
Pam Joseph, a Detention Officer, signed the Police letter.
