A thirty four-year- old widow and mother of four children in Egwudunagu village, Amachi community, in Abakaliki Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Mrs. Ogodo Egede, has been allegedly raped to death by one Alex Nwabu, a forty-year-old man in the area.
Nwabu, who committed the act at the residence of the deceased in the night, was said to have been having constant affair with the widow, with a threat to kill her if she dares disclose it to anybody.
The poor widow, who depended on artisan work to cater for her children, was seen with bruises all over her motionless body following the incident.
A family source disclosed that when the suspect continued the act, the widow’s daughter, a 13-year-old girl, was forced by Nwabu to leave the house for threatening to expose him.
‘’The girl ran to her grandparents in the night because Nwabu threatened to kill her. She came to greet her mother in the morning only to see that she was dead and was covered with a wrapper.
‘’The girl went and informed the grandfather that her mother is dead. She had told the grandfather the action of Nwabu in the night’’, the source added.
