After she was allegedly raped several times in Lagos, a 13-year-old girl known as Favour Okechukwu was gruesomely murdered.
It was also confirmed that on Wednesday, September 30, a 13-year-old girl was murdered by her rapists in the Ejigbo region of Lagos State.
According to a statement released by the State Police Command Spokesman, SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, at approximately 8.30 pm, Favour was sent on an errand by her mother to go and buy a Gala carton for her at Olanrewaju Lane, Ejigbo.
search party was raised to look for her when Favor did not return on time; before her father returned from work; and he himself began to look for the child, too.
They were later told that a girl had been raped to death at No. 4, Ejigbo Road, Olanrewaju.
Upon arrival, Favor Okechukwu’s body was found dead in a room belonging to one Ajom Brimcewil Tabi, at 4 Olanrewaju Lane, Ejigbo, Lagos.
The body was discovered strong naked with blood flowing from her private part.
Meanwhile, actress Hilda Dokubu has taken to social media to demanded justice for Favour.
A post also shared by her on her IG page reads;
”On the 30th Sept 2020, about 3pm, Favour was gang-raped to death around Ejigbo area, Lagos State.
She would have been 12 years on the 21st of October.
On the day Favour was raped, she was running errands for her nursing mother.
Upon gang-raping her to a state of unconsciousness the boys also engaged a quack nurse to check her.
@wrahpnigeria led @actionaidnigeria to meet with her parents today.
Whilst we cannot confirm if the nurse administered any treatment on her, @ActionAidNigeria will ensure the quack nurse; the young men and all others involved in this dastard act are brought to book. We will ensure #Justice4Favour.”
