Few days after the country woke up to the shocking news of the rape and gruesome murder in a church of Vera Uwa, a 22 year-old microbiology student of the University of Benin, Benin-City, a similar script has played out in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

There, a 19- year old Barakat Bello, student of  the Institute of Agriculture, Research and Training in Ibadan , was found dead at the back yard of her family compound after she had been raped and killed by a yet to be identified assailant.

Her father, Kasimu Elepo, who reportedly confirmed the incident, said Barakat whose mutilated body was found at the back of the family house was raped and killed on June 2, adding that she had been buried according to Islamic rites.

Meanwhile, the hashtag #JusticeforBarakat is trending on social media platform Twitter.
