Sept 20, 2015 – Parents Of 12-Year-old Girl, Rape Victim Who Committed Suicide In Mushin Lagos Nigeria Suspect Spiritual Invocation

Mushin Lagos residents have been thrown into mourning following the horrific death of a 12-year-old girl, who allegedly committed suicide.

The young girl identified as Mulikat Hassan, Daily Sun gath­ered, was found dead around 6pm, dangling from the ceiling of her parents’ one-room apartment located at 102, Mushin Road, Ikate, Lagos. Mr and Mrs Hassan came back from work on the fateful day to behold the heart-breaking sight. Both the parents and neighbours are still in shock and perplexed, wondering what drove the pre-teenage girl to take her life.

One of the neighbours told Sunday Sun on the condition of anonymity, that the act may have been instigated by remote spiritual invocation.

Her words: “I have never seen anything like it before. Yes, I have heard of adults committing suicide but never have I seen or heard of a 12-year old girl taking her own life. I think it is as a result of some sort of spiritual manipulation.”

Expressing pain over the death of Mulikat, another neighbour de­scribed the deceased as a very decent and responsible girl. “She was a very good, responsible and respectful girl. It remains a big surprise to me why she would choose to commit suicide. That morning, before her mother went to work, they both passed by my shop and I admired the fine hijab that she (Mulikat) wore, and I told her mother I liked it and she smiled.”

Claiming to have seen the remains of the deceased hanging from the ceiling,another said: “When her mother came back from work, she met her other children playing outside the compound and asked after Mulikat. They told her that she was in the house. On getting to the room, she met the door locked from inside and began to knock, thinking that she was asleep.

After banging on the door for some time and calling her name, Mama Mulikat became so worried that she had to scream for help. When we got there, we knocked for a while, still there was no response from inside. So, we broke down the door. The sight was gory. Mulikat had tied a rope to the ceiling fan of the room and hung herself. Her body was dan­gling. I feel she had been hanging there for hours since the saliva from her mouth was almost dried up,”he narrated.

In a bid to ensure the success of her suicidal act, Sunday Sun learnt that the deceased had, around 4pm, asked her young­er siblings to leave the room, claiming that she wanted to clean it. One of her siblings reportedly said she literally dragged him out of the room when he was reluctant to leave, and locked the door on herself. He said he tried going back inside after some time, knocked but his late sister refused to open the door.

Our correspondent tried to get the motive behind the incident. Some attributed it to poverty while another, speaking almost confidently, told our correspondent that it could be as a result of frustration.

Further checks revealed that the deceased may have been frustrated following sexual advances made towards her by an undisclosed neighbour. Suspicion has it that the man might have raped the girl who had always rejected his advances.

“There is a man in our compound who has been making advances to the young girl. She had complained several times and the issue had caused arguments between Mulikat’s parents and the man many times. I suspect that the man might have raped her and maybe due to the frustration, she committed suicide,” a source disclosed.

8 suspects have been arrested in connection with the suicide.

    Believe me that girl was raped. Nothing will make a little girl like that think of suicide if she was not molested and abused by a man. That man should be arrested and made to confess. Even if he is not arrested nemesis will catch up with him. Wonder wat men derive in abusing children. Evil men evil generation. God is watching!!!

    Autopsy should be conducted on her and if any semen is found in her, all the males in and around her neighborhood should submit for DNA testing to find out who raped her. The notion of spiritual attacks in Nigeria should be discounted. Nigerians should go for solutions ibstead of blaming anything they don’t know the cause on “spiritual attack”. That is a lazy way out of proper investigation.
