Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom is set to begin renovation works at a primary school in the state, which will also be named after late Elizabeth Ochanya.
According to reports, the governor gave the instruction to the Executive Secretary of the State Universal Basic Education Board, Philip Attachin, to give the school in the village of the late Ochanya a modernisation and then name it after her.
Recall that 13-year-old Elizabeth Ochanya died due to complications arising from the rape allegedly carried out by her uncle and his son.
“I have directed 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 further said.
On the release of the Ex-Livestock Guard Coordinator, Alhaji Aliyu Teshaku, who was arrested and detained by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), the governor said he had been vindicated.
“I inherited Teshaku from the preceding administration. I do not know why he was arrested and then released. I met with him and he told me he was released on bail,” Ortom added.
