The life of Justina Erube, a young lady, has been cut short following the processes of abortion she went through. She was purported to have been impregnated by her uncle.
The uncle, Satur Erube also known as Satur Busher, was a former chairman of Amukpe motor park. The deceased was the only surviving child of his late elder brother. Busher had taken up her responsibility when she started living with him when she was 4 years old.
The uncle was said to have grown fond of her; on this note, he started sleeping with her and this led to her being pregnant.
Sapele Oghenek who had first hand information about the incident said Busher was trying to cover up the pregnancy by forcing her to commit an abortion. It was gathered that the uncle who got her pregnant sent her to secondary school and took care of her educational needs.
She was sent to the university after she completed her secondary education. However, he became extremely jealous of guys who approached her. He was so protective of her; people did not know he was having an affair with her.
The complications from the abortion set in and this made her sick. At some point, villagers tried finding out the cause of the sickness but she kept mum about it.
Oghenek said the uncle had threatened to kill her if she told anyone about it. Thus, she kept quiet until she died March 18. Erube's uncle organised members of his church to take her corpse to the village but she youths from the community chased them away. They asked him to bring her dead body home by himself.
A lot is indeed happening in our society. May God have mercy on us all.
