8-year-old girl raped to death in Akwa Ibom

Her corpse was found near an uncompleted building.

An eight-year-old primary school girl has been raped to death by unknown persons in Ikot Ekang, Etinan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom state.

The incident took place on Tuesday night when she was sent on errand by her grandfather at about 6.30 p.m.

It was learnt that the grandfather, Enobong Wilson, raised alarm when the girl did not return three hours after she left the house.

Her corpse was eventually found on Wednesday morning near an uncompleted building in the village.

The girl was a pupil of Christian Victory Nursery and Primary School in the village.

The school’s Head Teacher, Ufok Tommy, said that the deceased was registered in the school by her grandfather at the beginning of this academic year.

“We came to school this morning and discovered a crowd of women gathered in one uncompleted building along the school road discussing the incident.

“So one of my teachers rushed to find out what had happened and was shocked to see the corpse of the primary three pupil of this school.

“We saw her pant, two pairs of sandals and a can fish which she bought for her grandfather on the ground,” he said.

The village head, Ekere Akpan, said it was the first time such incident had happened in the community.

“When I heard of this incident, I reported the matter to the police who came to the scene and took the corpse away.

“The police are doing their investigation and as the village head I will give them all the necessary support to ensure that the culprit is brought to book.

“The blood of the innocent girl will not go in vain,” Mr. Akpan said.

The grandfather was not at home when a correspondent visited his residence.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Etim Dickson, confirmed the incident.

“It is true that a girl of about eight years old was raped to death in Ikot Ekang, in Etinan.

“We have made some arrests and investigation is on to unravel the culprits,” Mr. Dickson said.

He advised parents and guardians to always be cautious when they send their children and wards on errands to avoid such ugly incident.

    Its because of such shameless, ungodly acts that made George Berkely say: ‘I’d rather be an oyster than a man, the most stupid and senseless of animals.’ May God deliver this generation.

    Shame on our retarded investigative/forensic departments. In saner climes the assailant’s DNA would be retrieved from the girl and cross-matched with existing samples in a database of known offenders. Chances are that this individual has done this before and/or will do it again. Instead funds are diverted by NNPC, we’re stocking Aso Rock zoo and paying ‘private contractors’ to secure our pipelines that are being constantly vandalized.
    After more than half a century of discovering crude and making money from its export we are barely standing, naked and ashamed amongst nations of the world.
