Police invites a group of gender activists planning to protest the death of Keren Akpagher for ‘inciting public disturbance’
The Police of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has invited some activists planning to protest the death of Keren Akpagher.
Keren Akpagher, who was a senior secondary school student of Premiere Academy in Lugbe, Abuja, was allegedly raped by persons yet to be identified.
She died on June 22, 2021, after suffering hyperglycemia triggered by sepsis, an infection caused by the condom found in her.
Her story angered Nigerians and activists planned a protest for Friday, July 9, to call attention to the incident and demand justice.
However, on Thursday, July 8, the Police, in a memo with Ref. No. 3000/FCT/X/D9/ VoL 62/38, invited the persons organizing the demonstration.
The Police letter was signed by Pam Joseph, a Deputy Commissioner of Police at the Criminal Investigation Department, FCT Command.
Lemmy Ugbhegbe, head of Coalition Against Gender-Based Violence and Convener, Men Against Rape Foundation was asked to appear for “inciting public disturbance.”
