The deceased student was raped on Friday 29th May near Ikpoba Hill in Benin City, at her church, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
According to reports the deceased had gone to the church to read as usual, in preparation for the lifting of the coronavirus-imposed shutdown of schools.
The perpetrators were said to have attacked her at the RCCG Ohovbe road branch, raped and smashed her head with a fire extinguisher, leaving her for dead.
She was rushed to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), where she battled for her dear life at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
The victim died on Saturday midnight, May 30, following excess loss of blood and deep cut on her head.
A family source, who confirmed the development, described the deceased as “an easy-going somebody (sic).”
Nigerians have since taken to Twitter to demand for justice for the fallen student and one of the numerous victims of rape in the country.
