It was gathered that Ngozi’s father, Jonathan, took her to the Township Primary School 1, Ogrute in the morning of March 26, 2019, on his motorcycle for the extra-mural studies as he usually did on a daily basis but on that day, she did not come back alive.
Her half naked body was found in the morning of March 27, 2019 by early risers in a bush behind the Community Secondary School, Imufu where she was allegedly raped and murdered by miscreants.
Her mother, as Juliet Eze ugly experiences, said she was pained when she saw some of the suspects walking freely and still challenging the family even before her daughter was buried.
She said three suspects were arrested in connection with her daughter’s rape and eventual murder.
She alleged that the suspects have been release from police custody and they have been threatening her.
