14-year-old girl raped, killed in Abeokuta
One Fathia Ojewoye has been raped and killed by yet-to-be identified persons in Ogun State.
The 14-year-old secondary school pupil, who was expected to resume school on Monday, was found dead in an uncompleted building on Saturday at Agbeloba-Oriyonrin area of Abeokuta, the State capital.
The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the ugly incident.
It was gathered that Fathia had been declared missing by her parents on Wednesday, three days before her lifeless body was found.
It was gathered that the teenager’s mother had sent her to refill their cooking gas cylinder around the area. She did not return home since then.
Her parents, who became apprehensive, began to search for her, but to no avail until her body was discovered on Saturday.
Sources said Faithia was last seen with a young man at the time she was going to the gas station. The young man had since fled the area.
The teenager was reportedly defiled in a brutal way and later murdered by the fleeing suspect(s).
The Ogun State Police Spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said investigation had commenced to unravel the mystery behind the brutal killing of the teenager.
He assured that the command would ensure that the perpetrators were apprehended soon.
