Benue State Governor Promises To Name School After Elizabeth Ochanya


The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, on Wednesday, stated that the Executive Secretary of the state’s Universal Basic Education Board, Philip Attachin, has been directed to give the school in the home of late Elizabeth Ochanya, a face-lift.

The Governor stated this during a discussion with newsmen in Makurdi, he further stated that the school would be named after the girl.

Recall that Naija News reported that the 13 year old Elizabeth Ochanya, died as a result of complications rising from rape allegedly carried out by a father and son.

I have instructed the SUBEB boss to give facelift to the LGEA primary school, Ogene Amejo in Okpokwu local government area where the late Ochanya who was allegedly raped by her uncle and son had her primary education.

We shall provide all instructional materials for the school and name it after her,” Ortom said.

On the release of the former livestock guard coordinator, Alhaji Aliyu Teshaku, who was arrested and detained by the Department of State Services, the governor said he had been vindicated.

I inherited Teshaku from the previous administration. I do not know why he was arrested and then released. I met with him and he told me that he was released on bail,” Ortom said.
