The Foundation for Aiding Children's Empowerment Face has categorically condemned the gruesome rapping of a 12-year-old girl to death recently in Paynesville outside Monrovia. On Friday, January 11, 2013, a local daily here reported the rape of a teenager to death allegedly by her adopted brother Abraham Sensee.
FACE executive director, Momolu Johnson described the act as barbaric, crude, uncivilized, calling on all civilized and peace loving Liberians to condemn the act. He said it was unfortunate for innocent girls to fall victim to rape in such modern times while little or nothing is done to the perpetrators.
At the same time, FACE is encouraging the Government and all child protection/advocacy groups to do more than mere talks about these barbaric acts meted out against children. The child rights advocacy group called for perpetrators to face justice.
Johnson reminded concern Liberians and stakeholders about the significant role women and child protection groups played in directing an important amount of resources to ensuring justice in the case involving murder convicts Hans Williams and his wife in the death of little Angel Togba. He also noted that it was disheartening for two rape incidents resulting to the untimely death of two innocent children to occur in less than a month.
