Precious Iwezoa, a thirteen-year-old girl has allegedly committed suicide at her grandmother’s residence on Number 6 Osagie Street, Off Lucky Way Road, Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of Edo state.
It was gathered that the teenager’s dead body was found hanging with a rope inside the compound. An alarm was raised and her grandmother was immediately alerted.
Precious had been living with her paternal grandmother since 2017 when she lost her mum at the age of two
The Edo State Police Command Officers who visited the scene assured that the incident will be investigated, however the possibility of it being a foul play was ruled out.
Bello Kontongs the spokesperson of the state police command, said “The police has removed the body and deposited for preservation at our clinic at Ikpoba Hill while investigation is on to unravel the cause of her hanging herself.
It is sad for me reporting that a thirteen-year-old who has not even started life, is hanging herself for reasons only known to her because there was no suicide note and observing the body, for now, I can say there was no foul play. She actually hanged herself.”
