A 10-year-old female orphan who was reportedly raped and impregnated at the IDP Camp, Benue State has been reportedly dumped at a hospital while in child labour.
According to a Facebook user, Chigozie Effe, who shared the news on Facebook, the child named Masenengen Targba was dumped at General Hospital Markurdi located at Northbank by an anonymous person in the early hours of Sunday, 4th August.
She was said to have a lot of complications and could not deliver her baby by herself. Her pelvis was too small, according to the doctors, so a Cesarean Section was to be performed on her. This, however, became difficult to do as there were no funds available to the dumped girl. A young man Mr. Ukan had taken her to Foundation Memorial Hospital, Makurdi, Benue State, where she got delivered of a baby girl in the early hours of today.
Masenengen is said to be from Tiv tribe of Benue state and has been living in an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp located in Benue State where she was raped and impregnated at 9 by anonymous rapist(s). Details of who raped her and dumped her at the hospital are still unknown though, a man claiming to be her Uncle showed up after she was delivered of her child. Investigations are still ongoing to ascertain who the man is.
