Lady raped, murdered, corpse dumped on Valentine's Day
A young lady has been raped, murdered and her body dumped by unknown men in a community in Imo State.
The ungodly find was made in the morning of Sunday, February 15, 2015, a day after the world celebrated the last Valentine's Day.
According to an eyewitness who spoke to Vanguard Newspaper, the corpse of the unidentified lady had several bruises especially around the breasts and private part region.
An eyewitness, who spoke on grounds of anonymity, told Vanguard that a close look at the lady’s corpse revealed bruises, especially around the breasts and private parts, lending credence to the fact that she must have put up some struggle before her demise.
The witness also ruled out ritual killing as no part of the corpse was missing.
"I am not too sure that it was a case of ritual killing because no part of the girl, on the face value, was missing.
It is, to me, a case of brutal gang-raping to death of the unfortunate girl."
The traditional ruler of the community, Eze Leo Nwokocha, also expressed concern at the dastardly act, saying that the identity of the dead lady was still unknown.
