The Story of Acid Bath Victim, Franca Ogbu

On May 5 2011, 22yr old 100 level Economics student of Federal University of Technology, Yola, Adamawa State, Franca Ogbu, was bathed with acid and permanently disfigured by people who are yet to be fully identified. There are two or more versions of what actually happened to Franca. Some students in the school claim that Franca was in a relationship with a lecturer in the school and the man's wife sent thugs to bath her with acid. The school authority is claiming that another male student of the school whom she rejected romantically arranged with some of his friends to disfigure the once pretty girl. Six student of the school have since been expelled. You can read more of the story here.

Please continue reading...but viewer's discretion is advised. There's a disturbing pic when you continue...



Franca now desperately needs N12 million for surgery at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital where she has been lying for over six months. So sad! Please say a prayer for Franca...

    It shall not be well with whoever inflicted this on her. What was her offence that warrant this? I doubt there's any surgery that can restore her normal look. Some people are just wicked. I pray that God in His infinite mercy will do the impossible in her life.

    But why are people so evil and despicable? This inhumanity. Praying for her, hopefully the perpetrators are brought to book.

    Read the full story on vanguard's site and though i sympathize greatly with the girl, i also feel that the people who have been labelled the culprits are innocent. The girl knows more than she is letting on and it doesnt seem fair. I hope she clears the air and helps to bring the ACTUAL culprit to book.

    God help her.

    Beatrice, that'll be a VERY WRONG MOVE & our Creator will NOT BE HAPPY should you go ahead with that plan.

    Don't fight this battle; let HIM fight it for you.

    Think our legal system is faulty. We have access to all the technology the world yet we can't use any of these to solve a simple crime case. Imagine in the developed world, they would have gone through the database of the conversations that might have happened between Franca and the porported lecturer and may be a link would have been found between them. Moreso, isn't it obvious to everyone, a girl is dating a Chemistry department lecturer and acid was pured on her. Can we see a link there?

    whoever did ds has finished ds chiq. no matter d surgery she can never be restored back to her original beautiful self.
    but no matter her crime..it shouldnt have been an acid bath. if it was d lecturer's wife that did ds, has she not dated someone's husband before???truthfully!
    if it was a male student she rejected, are there not other girls???
    ds is just so sad

    I just pray that if these young men did not do this, since this fella's case, as he stated it, sounds pretty convincing, they will release them. This young lady should know who must have done this and I really hope that she is being totally honest. I hope that she is not at this point trying to protect anyone or worse trying to salvage and spare her own image, thinking that if people knew she was dating a married man, there would be no sympathy for her situation and thus, no help. If that is the case, I want her to know that although many people will think her involvement with a married man a bad thing, I don't believe that they will agree with this type of retribution. However you look at it, whatever the case, it is a horrible thing to put someone through. I really hope a woman could not do this to another woman for such a stupid reason, because if her man is a philanderer, if he is inclined to cheat, she will have to stockpile on acid, if this is the way she chooses to deal with it.

    This crime, just like rape, is constantly being ignored and overlooked in Nigeria. We need to insist on the death sentence for perpetrators of these sorts of crimes. This really sick!
    God please shower your healing mercies on this poor girl.
    Ladies stop jumping into relationships with mentally unstable men. take your time to study a guy before you commit to him.
