A teenager named Fathia Ojewoye has been raped and killed by unidentified persons in Abeokuta, Ogun State, the Police Command has stated.
The 14-year-old secondary school pupil had been found dead in an uncompleted building on Saturday at Agbeloba-Oriyonrin area of Abeokuta, the State capital, after failing to return from an errand.
The Ogun State Police Command has confirmed the ugly murder. The teenager Fathia had been reported missing by her parents in Abeokuta on Wednesday, three days before her corpse was found.
Reports also gathered showed that the teenager’s mother had sent her to refill their cooking gas cylinder around the area. She did not return home since then.
