Teenager In Enugu State Strangled And Raped To Death

An 18-year-old girl identified with the name Ngozi Eze, has been raped to death by unknown persons in Enugu Ezike, Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Ngozi Eze’s dead body was discovered in a bush behind Community Secondary School, Imufu, several hours after her family went to the police to report a case of a missing person.

Father of the dead teenager identified as Jonathan Eze-Eze, who could not hold back tears after he saw his daughters dead body in the bush, made it clear that he took her on his motorcycle to the Township School, Ogrute, Enugu Ezike, where she went for JAMB lessons on Tuesday evening and went back later to pick her only to be told that somebody had given her a lift and which later resulted to her death.

The father of the deceased said in a statement:

“I left Township School, Ogrute and went home straight, hoping to see her but she wasn’t there. We waited till 8 pm and started looking for her. “She was not the type that normally socialises. We did not sleep as her telephone number was switched off. It was only this morning (Wednesday) that we got information that her corpse was found here.

“She was to enter the university last year when she completed her secondary education but we prevailed on her to exercise patience for her elder brother to graduate because we cannot afford to train two persons in the university. Since then, she has been working hard to gain admission this year, but this is what has now happened.”

Operatives of the Police command in Enugu state who arrived at the scene in order to remove her corpse, said that close observation showed lacerations around her neck and ankles, meaning that she must have been strangulated by her rapists, even as some of her books, pens, handkerchief and shreds of her clothing were scattered around the scene of where she was found dead.
