Reports suggest she was helped into a room around the drinking spot, but it was later found out that the suspects sneaked into the said room to rape her.

Terrified by the lifeless body of the woman, the two siblings whose room she was sleeping dumped the body on the streets, on the advice of their grandmother.

However, a search was mounted for the deceased after her fiancée, Awudu Bashiru, reported her disappearance to the Police.

The deceased’s body was later found the following morning at about 6 am in vicinity lying supine with phlegms oozing from her nose with her plantain chips in a tray beside her.

Meanwhile, the two siblings who dumped the body of the deceased on the streets have been arrested together with their grandmother.

Also, one of the suspects of the alleged rape has been arrested, but the others are currently at large.
