Aisha Umar, a female Internally Displaced Person (IDP) in Borno State, has taken her life after she was allegedly raped by an official of an International Non-Governmental Organisation (name withheld).

The deceased, who engages in menial jobs for survival was reportedly lured to the apartment of the suspect at 303 Housing Estate, near Dalori IDP camp, Maiduguri, under the guise of cleaning the place.

The suspect identified as Huzaif Adam (35) was said to have forcefully had sex with her when she came into his apartment.

According to a source, the victim’s cry for help attracted neighbours to Adam’s apartment, but he had already raped her by then.

The neighbours were said to have forced his door open.

The source said the victim, who was traumatised rushed to Adam’s kitchen where she picked up a knife that she used to stab herself. She died moments later at the hospital.

A police officer, who confirmed the incident said  the suspect was detained at Gwange Division of Borno Police Command after his arrest but he was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID).

“We arrested the perpetrator but he has now been transferred to the SCID. His case file is in Gwange Divisional of Police,” the officer said.

The Executive Director of Women in the New Nigeria and Youth Empowerment initiative, Comrade Lucy D Yunana,  said she visited both Gwange Police Station and University of Maiduguri to ascertain the incident.

“I was contacted via my office and I called Commissioner for Sports; the incident happened around our Area 303/202 EFCC area. I saw the perpetrator and interviewed him, and also saw the corpse of the innocent girl at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH). It’s a really sad incident; justice should be served.

“The girl was crying and quoted as saying, ‘Why would you do this to me?’ Instead of bringing shame to my parents after disflowering me, I rather die than go home,” she said.
