Mirabel Ezinne, a lady from Ebonyi State, was discovered dead in a motel with her private parts removed.
The young lady was said to have arrived at the hotel with a man whose identity has yet to be confirmed.
According to sources “Her two hands were tied to the back, her legs were also tied and her face was blindfolded. Her private part cut off. The culprit is nowhere to be found but the police are on the matter.”
They said preliminary investigations showed that she may have been raped to death or killed for ritual purposes as her hands were tied.
Speaking during a press conference on Wednesday in Abakaliki, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Loveth Odah, said investigations are on to uncover the immediate and remote circumstances that led to the untimely death of the young lady.
