12-Year-Old Nigerian Orphan And Rape Victim, Masenengen Targba, Welcomes Child

A 12-year-old orphan who was dumped at a hospital in Benue state while experiencing labour pains has now given birth after having to undergo a Caesarean Section due to the small size of her pelvis. According to Chigozie Effe who shared the news on Facebook and also runs an NGO, ‘thegoziebridge’, the child named Masenengen Targba was dumped at General Hospital Markurdi located at Northbank by an unknown person in the early hours of Sunday, August 4, 2019.

She was in so much pain as it was time to have her baby, but surgery needed to be carried out and she could not afford it.

Upon interrogation, it was discovered that she is an orphan from the Tiv ethnic group in Benue state, but has been living in an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp located in Benue State. It is in the camp that she was raped and impregnated.
