18-Year-Old Gang-Rape Victim Commits Suicide
An 18-year-old rape victim, identified as Janet, has committed suicide in the Amarata area of Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
The deceased, a native of Oduali community in Abus/Odua Local Government Area of Rivers State, was allegedly raped by three unidentified boys in the area.
Janet reportedly hanged herself due to the stigmatisation she allegedly experienced after the incident.
A family source, who craved anonymity, said Janet was gang-raped last week at gunpoint, while on errand for her elder sister. She was said to have been
forced into an uncompleted building by her assailants, who were three in number before the act.
The source said, “Janet was visibly sad and devastated after the incident; she narrated her experience to her sister and sister’s husband. The sister’s
husband, who is a pastor, asked her to describe any of her attackers and she described a certain boy.
