Christabel Omoremime Buoro, a 300-level student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) who was found dead in her room, was raped before she committed suicide, her friend and uncle have said.
An earlier report had said she committed suicide because of a strained relationship with her boyfriend.
She was said to have locked herself indoors after her roommate had left the hostel, increased the volume of her music player, left a note and committed the act.
Her roommate, identified simply as Folakemi, as well as a man who identified himself as the deceased’s uncle, Ben Bamiyi, said Christabel was an introvert.
“She had never had a boyfriend in her entire life. Christabel was exceptionally brilliant,” Bamiyi said.
Sources said the late Christabel was a virgin before her encounter with the rapist.
Police spokesman Chidi Nwabuzor, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said no arrest had been made though investigation into the incident had begun.
“Investigators said the suicide note was incoherent. Professionals will examine the body to ascertain if she was a psychiatric patient,” Nwabuzor said.
