Aisha Umar, a female Internally Displaced Person (IDP) in Borno State, has been reported dead after allegedly being raped by an official of an International Non-Governmental Organisation.
Although there were different versions of the incident which took place last Monday, some reports said, the deceased, who was into menial jobs for survival, was reportedly lured to the apartment of the suspect at 202 Housing Estate, near Dalori IDP camp, Maiduguri, under the guise of cleaning the place.
Executive Director of the New Nigeria and Youth Empowerment initiative, Comrade Lucy Yunana, yesterday expressed shock over the incident, and promised to mobilize peaceful protest, monitor the case to its logical conclusion with a view to ensure the suspect is punished accordingly.
The suspect identified as Huzaif Adam, 35, was said to have forcefully had sex with her when she came into his apartment.
According to sources, 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.
It was learnt that the deceased was rushed to the hospital for treatment before she died in the pool of her blood.
