A 13 year-old girl has reportedly committed suicide in Warri, Delta state over beatings she received for engaging in sexual affairs.
It was gathered the incident occurred on Saturday behind a Total Filling Station near Warri Main Garage in the oil- city.
Residents of the area, while expressing anger over the development, said she was a familiar face in the area.
According to them, the late teen lived with an elder sister, who is also unidentified and had beaten her for having a boyfriend.
Annoyed by the sister’s action, the deceased took an insecticide and ended up dead behind the fuel station.
A source said: “It’s a shame. The girl was seen by her elder sister with a man and she beat her for having a male lover at her age. She went inside and killed herself by drinking Angle 90 (insecticide).
