A 16-year-old girl identified as Alero Eyesan, has died days after being stabbed on her thigh at Urban Area, Sapele, Delta State, by a suspected rapist identified as Osama, who had been wooing her for long.
According to reports, the incident occurred on New Year’s Eve. The wound allegedly got infected as a result of her parents inability to raise funds for her prompt treatment.
She was later admitted at New Salvation Clinic, at Akpor Lane, Sapele, where the doctors said sepsis from the infected wound, had already spread to other parts of her body. She eventually lost the battle on Wednesday.
The suspected rapist has since been arrested.
