There is an uneasy calm in Agbaharansu community in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State following the alleged rape of a young girl to death by a suspected internet fraudster, popularly called Yahoo boy.
SaharaReporters gathered that the girl, identified as one Amarach Iwunze, was invited over by one Ifeanyi Osuji a native of the same community on Saturday.
She was reportedly drugged by Osuji who then had carnal knowledge of her. Amarachi died early Sunday morning in Osuji’s house.
It was further gathered that immediately after the news got to the community, some youths burnt Osuji’s house after destroying his belongings.
A viral video seen by SaharaReporters on Monday shows the rampaging youths pulling down the gate of the house said to have belonged to Osuji. There was smoke coming from the main building, indicating that the house was on fire.
The suspect Osuji had reported fled before the arrival of irate youths in the community.
When SaharaReporters contacted the Imo State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Mike Abattam on the telephone, he said, “I have received calls about the incident. But presently I am not aware.”
