According to Rikoto, the grandmother woke up from sleep and raised the alarm the moment she noticed that the girl was missing.

“When the suspects heard the grandmother shouting the girl’s name repeatedly, they dropped her and ran away, but they had already killed her,” he said.

NAN learnt that though the incident occurred about two weeks ago, up to now, neither the police nor the villagers were able to trace the killers.
