A 9-year-old girl was raped to death recently at Bori, Lepne in Rivers State. The alleged rapist, Tombari Eedee was said to have committed the crime in the church premises while service was going on at night.
The minor, Happenings gathered was at the church programme with her mother when the rapist allegedly called her out to a secret place where he allegedly had forceful carnal knowledge of her until she died.
When he discovered the girl was dead, he quickly threw her corpse over the church fence.
The secret was blown open when the deceased’s mother could not find her daughter at a point in time.
She, however, called the attention of the church management and they began a search for the girl.
Surprisingly, her corpse was found on the other side of the fence of the church.
The church reported the incident to the Rivers State Police Command.
After the police investigation, Tombari has arrested as the prime suspect.
Though he has denied the allegation, he is still kept in police net while more investigations are still on.
