Nasarawa’s ‘Acid-Bath Girl’ still abandoned…‘One year on, I’m still waiting for help’

Daily Trust "About a year ago, Comfort Sunday, 14, was introduced to relevant authorities including the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and other related matters (NAPTIP), and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).
The two agencies were holding a conference on child abuse at the Kini Country Lodge in Akwanga, Nasarawa State in August, 2010, when Better Leven Advancement Centre (BLAC), working to empower the poor, walked in with her. She had a veil over her face while officials of the NGO introduced her to the officials. By the time the veil was removed, participants abandoned their conference kits and held themselves in panic."
