A young shop assistant has been raped and murdered by a man presumed to be her ex-boyfriend.
According to the report, the girl was attacked inside the building material store where she worked in the area and many are suspecting her boyfriend whom she allegedly broke up with few days before she died.
The lifeless body of the girl was discovered at about 5p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, by her employer who had come to find out why the shop had not been opened for business all day, after many of his customers and fellow traders called him, only to discover her lifeless body.
A resident of the community and an eyewitness to the sordid sight, Efemena Omokaro, narrated that the lifeless body of the victim was discovered naked and mutilated inside the inner room of the shop.
“From what we saw on the corpse, she was attacked and killed in the morning by someone close to her. But the manner in which she was attacked calls for concern as such a thing has never happened in this community.”
Another resident said:
"Everyone is suspecting the victim's boyfriend because some days ago, it was gathered from her friends that they had a very bitter quarrel and she told him the relationship was over.
The man was heard saying she would not live to date another man. Now he is no where to be found."
