The Nigerian police in Bayelsa has confirmed that an 18-year-old girl committed suicide after a gang rape by three unidentified men last week.
One of the young girl’s family members, who pleaded for anonymity, said the girl was gangmolested last week in Amarata, Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
“She was on an errand for her elder sister and was allegedly molested at gun point by three boys who forced her into an uncompleted building.
“The girl was devastated after the incident.
“After some days she told her sister and the husband her experience. Her sister’s husband who is a Pastor, asked her to describe any of her attackers.
“She described one of the boys, but the boy could not be found; I believe Pastor counselled her (the victim).
“The pastor has promised to pursue the matter in court.
“She swallowed a poisonous substance known as Sniper and she was discovered while groaning in pains and rushed to GloryLand Hospital.
“The victim’s suicide plot was discovered through the note she dropped before taking the poisonous substance,” .
The Spokesman of the state Police Command, Mr Alex Akhigbe, told newsmen in Yenagoa that he believes the deceased decided to kill herself due to the attendant shame and stigmatisation she experienced after the rape incident.
He said that the command has launched an investigation into the alleged rape charges filed by the deceased’s family.
