Friends and family members have taken to Facebook in the last few days to demand justice for Esther who left secondary school in 2016.
She was ambushed, raped and killed by unknown assailants around Nwaniba road on Wednesday afternoon, October 28, 2020.
According to one of her friend, Edwin Edem, this is the third case of rape and murder going on in the community in the last six months.
It has also been alleged that many women and girls have been raped and murdered since crisis engulfed the community over power tussle between the village head and one Eyo Essien.
In his post, Edwin Edem described late Esther as a young lady with promising and bright future.
I am pained by the happenings around in the last 24 hours my heart knows. No joy Esther Ita Stephen, beloved friend turned sister was raped and murdered yesterday in broad-day. I am pained because the killers of this young lady with a promising Bright future. Still dwells among us uncut . I am pained because this numbers the third case of murder and countless numbers of rape ongoing within my community in the last six months and no one has been brought to book. Should we also let this fadeaway just like the former? We do not know who’s next. We seek #justiceforEsther”
