Another Nigerian student raped, killed in Ibadan









An 18-year-old Nigerian student of the Federal College of Animal and Production Technology, Moore Plantation, Apata, Ibadan, Oyo State, has suffered the same fate.



The teenager, Barakat Bello, who was undertaking the National Diploma programme in Science Laboratory Technology, was reportedly attacked on Monday.



Also on Monday, three armed men allegedly gang-raped a 17-year-old street hawker at the Oja-Oba Market, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State.



It was gathered that the attack on Barakat took place at her home in the Akinyele area of Ibadan.



Initial reports had it that her corpse was found near the house.



The father of the deceased, Kasimu Elepo, told Sahara Reporters that he was not at home when the incident occurred.



He stated that the deceased’s sister was also out of the house when the tragic incident occurred.



According to him, the sister found Barakat’s body in a pool of her own blood at the back of the house when she returned from Quaranic lessons.









Elepo said, “I was not at home when the incident happened. The victim’s younger sister was not at home too; she went for Quaranic lessons, but when she returned home, she saw Barakat at the back of the house with deep cuts all over her body. She had been raped and killed.



“Somebody called me on the phone that I should come home, but he refused to tell me what happened. When I got home, I saw that my daughter had been raped and hacked to death.”



The murder of the teenager has sparked protest on Twitter with the hashtag, #JusticeforBarakat.



A United Kingdom-based medical doctor, Harvey Olufunmilayo, said the rape epidemic must be brought to an end.



He tweeted, “Barakat Bello was alone at home when some men attacked her. She was raped and killed. This was in Ibadan yesterday. She was only 18. Barakat was at home. She is a Muslim hijabi sister. You mad people that come up with excuses for rape, what is the excuse this time?”
