Police investigates 17-yr-old girl’s ‘suicide’

Policemen attached to Shasha division in Lagos have begun investigation into the discovery of the lifeless body of a 17-year-old girl, Peace Asukwo, dangling from the ceiling fan of an apartment in Shasha area of Lagos.

Already, the dead girl’s boyfriend, a 300 Level Law student of University of Lagos, Akoka, in whose apartment the lifeless body was found, has been arrested.

Controversy is however trailing the teenager’s death as her 23-year-old boyfriend, Fisayo Tifase, was alleged to have a hand in her death.

However, Police hinted yesterday that it was too early to form any opinion as investigation would at the end determine whether the case was that of homicide or suicidal.

Residents of 10 Kalejaye Street were thrown into pandemonium last Friday, following the starling discovery, as some of them have reportedly fled their homes for fear of being arrested in connection with the incident.

Although there was no suicide note found in the room by Policemen, a version of the report said deceased could have committed suicide because she was jilted by her boyfriend.

Versions of same story
The late Peace, an orphan, according to a version of the report, arrived her boyfriend’s apartment at about 7p.m. But another version claimed she had been living with her 23-year-old boyfriend, until the relationship turned sour following his refusal to continue with the relationship.

Trouble started at about 8p.m. when the door of the apartment was reportedly discovered to have been locked from inside with no one responding to knocks. Sensing danger, the door was reportedly forced opened, only to discover Peace’s body dangling from the the ceiling fan.

Spokesman for the Lagos State Police Command, Mr Frank Mba, said: “Detectives who visited the scene met the body stark naked. Investigations are being carried out by policemen at Shasha Police Division preparatory to the case being transferred to the Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID.”

Wonders never ends if 5years and 6years could be found hanging of what difference would it be for a 17years old. Without sentiments or tantalizing the story any further what could be more humiliating was finding her lifeless body naked and hung from a ceiling fan. There should be an autopsy conducted to find out if she was pregnant with a through investigation done as to the cause of her death. The law student is the first suspect,but i do believe their more hands in and all of them must be apprehended and prosecuted to the full extent of the law in the book. It's heinous to just take a life for whatever reason if the relationship is over doesn't meant a death sentence nor all hopes is lost for her in life. What a pity a single act such as this to reverberate and devastate the entire family or the community. May her soul rest in perfect peace and may God console her family!!!
