Another 14 Year Old, Lucy Ejeh, Kidnapped Converted to Islam in Zamfara

by on March 5, 2016

Mrs. Funmi Falana, a human rights activist and chairperson of Women Empowerment and Legal Aid (WELA), has called on the Federal Government to rescue a 14 year old girl, Lucy Ejeh, who was allegedly abducted in Zamfara State.

We have just received another report of the kidnap and conversion from Christianity to Islam of another 14-year old girl named Lucy Ejeh which occured in Zamfara State.

“Miss Ejeh was allegedly abducted by one Hajiya Zarau on the 31st day of October 2009 and taken to an Imam’s house for the purpose of conversion to Islam.

“All efforts made by her parents to secure her release have proved abortive. We use this opportunity to call on the government of Zamfara State to ensure that Miss Ejeh is reunited with her family without any further delay while her abductors are fished out and prosecuted”.

The WELA chairperson noted that the abduction saga of Ese has confirmed the level of insecurity of life and the inadequacy of legal protection for women and children throughout the nation.

She said her group has found that such gross infringement of the human rights of women and children are prevalent in the country due to the connivance of security agencies.

    This madness must stop! Last tym was Ese nw it’s Lucy, nt to talk about several others that had escaped public notice. This dastardly acts are putting Islam in a bad light. I call on Muslim brothers to condemn them. Let a person decide to serve Allah willingly, nt by compulsion pls.
