MEET FRANK OSHANUGOR
By Frank Oshanugor
The controversy trailing the death of Miss Keren Akpagher; a student of Premiere Academy, Abuja has assumed another dimension as
the Parents Teachers Association (PTA) of the school has now called on police authorities to make public the autopsy report. The student had passed on, in a controversial circumstance in June, 2021.
Rising from a joint meeting with the school’s Management, the Association said it had closely followed the clash of passions and positions in the public space with regards to the unfortunate death of Keren.
According to the Association’s chairman, Barrister Uche Anyanwu, the matter of the unfortunate death of Miss Keren Akagher in a clinic in Abuja last June was heart-rending adding that the Association would continue to pray for divine comfort, and justice for the bereaved family.
The PTA stated that it had closely monitored developments and was convinced that the circumstances leading to the student’s medical emergency while at home with her mother should also be looked into.
The Association said it resolved that as responsible parents, it could no longer fold its arms and watch agenda-driven people destroy the hard earned credibility and reputation of their children’s school.
It noted that the Association found it disturbing that this uncommon tragedy that binds the family, the Association and the school together may have been hijacked by some external, agenda-driven, public hate and hostile campaigners who now spread discontent and misinformation in the public space.
The PTA maintained that the Federal Capital Territory Police which had investigated the matter to the point of obtaining an autopsy owed members of the public the duty to publish its finding.
It noted that for as long as the Police continued to delay the release of its investigation report, so will mischief makers continue to take advantage of the vacuum to create hate and disharmony in the public space.
