A Nigerian woman and her 16-year-old daughter were allegedly murdered by a male flatmate who attempted to rape the young girl.

It was gathered that the 49-year-old mum identified as Nkechinyere Nnaama, came back home from school on Tuesday, March 30th, only to find the young man she shared her flat with, attempting to rape her daughter.

A Facebook user, Amaka Okeagu, who shared the unfortunate incident on the platform revealed that the suspect reportedly grabbed a hammer and hit the girl’s mother her on the head when she tried to alert the other neighbours.

He also turned to the minor he tried to rape and allegedly murdered her with the hammer before he fled the scene. He was later arrested and allegedly confessed to the crime.

Nkechinyere died on the way to the hospital while her daughter passed away a day later, March 31.

Mother and daughter will be laid to rest on Friday, June 4th, 2021, in their hometown, Umuonaga village Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
