One of two girls allegedly gang raped by six boys in Ezebe village Umubo community, Onicha Igboeze in Onicha Local Government Area of Ebonyi State has reportedly died from injuries she suffered in the incident.
Already, four of the suspects have been remanded at the federal prison, Abakaliki; while the other two were granted bail at the behest of one Chief Ogbonnaya Okereke.
However, the community, in anger, took the corpse of the deceased to Okereke for arranging bail for the suspects.

The boys were eventually rounded up by the police and charged to court early this month of which two were granted bail while four others are awaiting trial.
“We also got information that one of the raped girls died while receiving treatment.”
