The rate at which Nigerian girls are being raped is appalling. When is this menace going to stop? When will our girls stop getting defiled? When will the justice system prompt into action to bring (deserved) justice on perpetrators? These are the questions I’m asking as I read the story of this innocent child.
She had left her father’s house to buy N100 garri to serve as dinner for her family only to never return.
Her corpse was later found as information emerged that she may have been raped by eight coffin makers in an uncompleted building at Odume-layout in Obosi, Idemili North council area of Anambra State.
Chekwube’s family hails from Ogboji community in Ezzagu, Ishielu council area of Anambra State.
She is believed to have met her untimely death on the fateful day when she was on her way back from where she had gone to buy garri for the family.
Obosi Police Division has already arrested two of the suspects in their effort to unravel the mystery surrounding the gruesome murder of the girl.
The teenage girl’s family remains in pains and is calling for justice for their daughter whose life was violently and painfully taken.
