Miss Chekwube Mbaka was yesterday allegedly raped to death by eight artisans at Odume Obosi in Idemili North Council Area, Anambra State.
A 20 year old male family friend suspected to be brain behind her abduction and rape with his friends is helping the Anambra Police Command in investigation as the police have already swung into action to unravel the circumstances surrounding her untimely death.
The boy went out with the late Chekwube for the errand sent her by her father even as one artisan has been arrested.
Chekwube was from Ogboji Ezzagu, Ishielu Loccal Government Area of Ebonyi State but was residing at MINAJ village, Odume Obosi.
Family sources said she was sent to buy a-hundred naira garri by her father who came back from work at about 9 pm, because there was no food for him in the house but she never came back.
The sources said a meter away to their entrance gate gate, the hoodlums allegedly dragged Chekwube to an uncompleted building where she was raped violently to death.
Narrating his daughters ordeal, Mr. Mbaka regretted that if he had known that sending his daughter out to buy food for his family could bring about people laying ambush for her, he should have preferred the entire family sleeping without dinner.
Mbaka said he is suspecting the artisans from Okposi also of Ebonyi State who are living close to their yard to have masterminded the barbaric act, following the alleged regular sexual demands they have made to his daughter in the past.
He appealed to Corporal Ibrahim Idris Aboki attached with Divisional Crime Bureau, DCB of Obosi Police Division to do a thorough investigation and bring the peperators to book.
The Nation learnt this was the fourth rape case Odume Obosi has recorded within the space of three months. Two deaths were also recorded in the barbaric acts of the hoodlums.
Divisional Police Officer of Obosi Division, CSP Dimale J.O confirmed the incident, stating that two people have been arrested in connection with the ugly story, adding that investigation is now on to unveil all that have hands in the death but declined further comment on the matter.
