A thirteen-year-old girl, Felicia Agwagu is now in detention at the Homicide Unit of the Cross River State Police Command after she allegedly stoned a twenty five year old man to death in Ogoja, Northern Cross River State.
The girl, a student of Igoli Girls Secondary School, Ogoja was said to have picked offence and stoned the man whose name was given as Vincent for playing rough with her by fondling her beasts. “She has been warning the man not to play with her but he would not listen and each time he sees her he would want to touch her where she said he should not”. A sister of the girl who prefers anonymity told CrossRiverWatch.
The man, our source said visited Felicia’s compound in Ishibori Village, Ogoja on Sunday evening and after exchanging pleasantries with those in the compound, he went towards Felicia who was not in the mood for any play and after trying to touch her, she warned him not to, but he continued and she became angry and Vincent decided to leave her and took to his heels prompting the girl to pick a stone and throw at him. “She did not mean to hurt him talk less of killing him but the stone hit him on the head and he fell down”.
Our source said the man was rushed to the General Hospital Ogoja but before they got there he had lost so much blood and died at the Hospital before the doctors could do anything . “My father has been pleading that the matter should be handled at the village level without involving the police but the family of the man is insisting that the matter should go to court”.
The Officer in charge of the Homicide Unit , DSP Joe Ashiagene said the matter was under investigation to unravel the circumstance that led to the tragic incident while the spokesman of the Cross River State Police Command, Mr Hogan Bassey said the girl will be charged to court once investigations are completed.
