We started searching for her throughout the night and this morning (Thursday), there was an expanded search team. It wasn’t really a distant farm, it is a nearby farm because people are not leaving far from the location, so we saw her corpse lying dead; and on getting there we saw her undies were torn apart, lying by the side, she sustained stabbing on her hands and at the back of her neck and she is dead already. We called the police who have visited the scene and took photo shots of the whole situation. The body has been deposited in the mortuary,” the Vanguard Newspapers reported.
