“Around 12, that when I entered the house after church service. Immediately I opened the gate, I sighted her dead body and the rope. I did not know what exactly happened,” the neighbor, Peace Uwadia explained.

“I was shocked and immediately raised the alert the grandmother because I knew she would be the only one in the house.”

The teenager had been living with her paternal grandmother since 2017. Janet Ohioma – the grandmother narrated that Precious had earlier helped her to heat her food and later sat in the living room watching the television.

When Uwadia raised the alarm, Mrs Ohioma did not expect to see a lifeless Precious.

“I thought Precious had run away from home as she had done before but was found by a neighbor. When I got to where Precious was, I fell,” the devastated woman told Channels Television.

‘No Foul Play'

The late Precious' death is being investigated.

Officers from the Edo State Command who visited the scene assured that the incident will be investigated but ruled out foul play.

“The police has removed the body and deposited for preservation at our clinic at Ikpoba Hill while investigation is on to unravel the cause of her hanging herself,” police spokesman Edo State Command, Bello Kontongs, said of Precious who lost her mother at two.

“It is sad for me reporting that a thirteen-year-old who has not even started life, is hanging herself for reasons only known to her because there was no suicide note and observing the body, for now, I can say there was no foul play. She actually hanged herself.”
