9-year-old girl raped and killed in Rivers State

16 January 2016, 16:00

Lagos - In a tragic incident in Elele Community in Rivers State, a 9-year-old girl was raped and murdered by an unknown assailant. 

PM Times reported that the girl, Miracle, was abducted while she was running an errand for her mother. 

When she had not returned after some time, her mother alerted neighbours to keep a lookout if they see her. They then organised a search party among themselves but did not find her.

The next morning, her body was found near her home. She was declared dead and there was blood around her nose, mouth and private parts.

The Rivers Police have not commented about the murder yet, but neighbours have suggested that her rape and murder could have been part of a cult ritual. 

It was also revealed that Miracle’s older brother belongs to a cult group, and some believe that her abduction and murder could be part of a revenge plot by a rival cult group.
