April 18, 2012 – 15-Year Old Rape Suspect Commits Suicide

Just one day after he was accused of rape and punished by residents in Lagos, a 15-year old boy was found hanging on a rope in an empty room.

The Togolese, Yao Donou, who was alleged to have raped a 5-old girl was Tuesday found dead in a room at Ipaja-Ayobo, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria.

The apparent suicide happened at Orebiyi compound behind Command Road, Ipaja.

The late Yao was found with a rope tied around his neck and hanging from a ceiling a day after the residents tortured him for raping the victim.

This resulted in suspicion that he might have committed suicide as a result of the rape incident.

It was gathered that Yao was severely punished by the residents after he raped a little girl in the neighbourhood. He was asked to lie down and bricks were piled on his back before his mother pleaded with the victim’s family and he was released later.

He went home dejected according to residents, who witnessed the beating.

His mother, Kehinde, who was still in shock over what happened, said she didn’t believe that he could commit suicide.

She said the late Yao was his only son out of her three children, adding that he was close to her.

She said that her son could not go to school and they decided he should learn mechanic which she said he was doing well before the incident happened.

Kehinde described Yao as a hardworking person who took his job seriously. She said the police have been contacted and they have visited the scene and left. Residents were shocked at what happened and they were seen discussing the matter and sympathising with the family.

According to the DPO in charge, “So far, no arrest has been made,” said a police source.
