An 18-year-old girl, Miss Ngozi Eze, has been r*ped to death by unknown persons in Enugu Ezike, Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The deceased’s body was found in a bush behind Community Secondary School, Imufu. She had gone for her JAMB lessons in preparation for the forthcoming UTME.

The body was found several hours after her family declared her missing. The deceased’s father, Jonathan Eze, had earlier dropped her with his motorbike at the lesson centre.

Eze told the crowd that gathered in the bush where his daughter’s corpse was found that he took her on his motorcycle to the Township School, Ogrute, Enugu Ezike, where she went for JAMB lessons in the evening of Tuesday.

According to him, he went back later to pick her only to be informed that somebody had given her a lift.

“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 socialise. 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.”

Rev Father Johnson Nwanonenyi, the parish priest of the area, who said a short prayer for the repose of her soul at the scene, amid wailing and sobbing by sympathisers, shortly before a team of police detectives took the body away for further investigations, said that human beings would always reap the bad seeds they sowed while on earth.

“The perpetrators of this heinous crime will be exposed. God will not allow His creation to be humiliated this way, without punishing them adequately,” the priest said.

The police who arrived the scene said a close observation of her corpse showed lacerations around her neck and ankles, suggesting she must have been strangled by her rapists.

Her books and writing materials, handkerchief and shreds of her clothings were scattered around the scene. Spokesman of Enugu state command of the Nigeria police, Superintendent Ebere Amaraizu said they were yet to receive full report of the incident.
