Crime Update: 11-year-old Girl Raped To Death In Lagos
An 11-year-old girl, Favour Okechukwu, was raped to death on Thursday.
The incident occurred between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. on Thursday at No. 4 Olarenwaju Road, Ejigbo, Lagos State.
The arrest of five suspects over the matter was confirmed by sources at the Ejigbo Police station where the incident was registered.
Mrs. Helen Ibeji, President of the International Child Initiative and Women ‘s Development Foundation (ICI-WODEF), told The Nation that the girl returned on Wednesday from school.
She was sent to buy a gala by her mother, and that was the last time she saw her. These agents of darkness have actually been following her for some time now.
She wasn’t back from buying the gala. She claimed she had found her body in the bed, lying starkly nude in the bed where she had been raped to death.
The Lagos State DNA & Forensic Center (LSD & FC) was invited by police who took the victim’s body away for forensic examination.
