Founder Of Girl's Right NGO Arrested For Enslaving 10-year Old Girl

The Office of the Public Defender (OPD) in the Lagos State Ministry of Justice, has rescued a 10-year-old girl in the home of Ada Onyejike Ananaba, founder of the Girl Child Art Foundation (GCAF) — an NGO that claims to provide more than 17,000 girls with life skill programme opportunities.

Ananaba has been arrested and charged to court, for maltreating the girl and denying her education (She had not been attending school since the start of the current academic session in September.).

The victim was rescued on Tuesday afternoon by the OPD at Ananaba’s home in Omole, Ikeja. Sources revealed that although the girl had stopped schooling, she continued taking Ananaba’s two kids to and from school every day.

“She is up as early as 5am sweeping the house and even up till 11pm. You need to see all the marks on her body; horrible! She gets beaten up by Ananaba all the time; morning beatings are customary.

This is a very serious case of human trafficking," the source was quoted as saying.

Ananaba allegedly brought the girl to Lagos from the eastern part of the country about three years ago.

At the moment, OPD has taken custody of the victim.
