A young girl who was rescued by the Child Protection Network (CPN) team found laying on the road at U.J. Esuene Sport Stadium, Calabar, Cross River State, on Saturday, July 21 has died a week after.
Kebe Ikpi of Basic Rights Counsel Initiative (BRCI) said the unconscious girl, who was reportedly about 17 years old, was taken to UCTH and doctor’s report states that she was raped several times before going into coma.
The girl showed signs of regaining consciousness on Thursday, July 26, but eventually gave up the ghost on the 28.
Her corpse has since been deposited in the morgue.
