We reported on Tuesday that an 18-year-old girl identified as Miss Faith Pius, was stabbed to death by her 26-year-old lover in a hotel room located at Biogbolo area of Yenagoa in Bayelsa state.
The man took to his heels when the cry of the victim attracted the attention of other guests in the hotel who came to her rescue on Friday night, though the young girl who was rushed to a private clinic where she was treated, developed complications on Saturday and died on Sunday morning.
In a latest development over the gruesome murder, youths from Biogbolo Epie, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, went berserk on Monday following the murder of a young girl in De New Wapo Hotel located in their area.
It was gathered that tension caused by the activities of the group of aggrieved indigenes forced traders to close their business premises on the affected street and other adjoining streets of Ebis and Green Villa.
The angry protesters, who were reportedly carrying weapons, chased suspected non-indigenes and vowed to avenge the killing of their kinswoman. It was gathered that the suspect identified as a former tenant to the victim’s father, lured the girl into his hotel room on Friday.
There were, however, different versions of what transpired in the hotel room where the suspect inflicted injuries on the victim. One of the narrative said on getting to the room, the deceased girl resisted all the attempts by the fleeing man to have s*x with her.
Provoked by the girl’s behaviour, the suspect reportedly went violent, stabbed the victim three times on her chest and fled.
According to another version, the suspect drugged his victim and cut off her br**sts in a desperate attempt to use her for ritual. It was, however, learnt that a police van took the victim to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), where she later died.
