The woman identified as Miss Deborah Bassey was said have been on her way to attend a night vigil at a Pentecostal Church before she met her untimely death in the hands of the rapists.
A large crowd of passers-by and sympathisers gathered to catch a glimpse of the lifeless body of the late Miss Bassey, which was found naked by a welder’s workshop.
A member of the Church who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told LEADERSHIP that, “somebody ran to the church early in the morning to inform us that our member’s body is lying dead by a welder’s workshop and we immediately rushed to scene only to discover that it was our member (Deborah).
“This is the most mindless act by a fellow human being, how could they have raped her and even killed her at the same time? We pray that God will accept her soul and avenge her death.”
At the time of filing in this report, the deceased’s body had been removed by men of the state police command to an undisclosed mortuary.
