A 13-year-old girl, Miss Chinenyerem Okonkwo, on Tuesday, allegedly committed suicide at her relative's apartment at 14 Chief Okoro Close, Abakpa Nike, in Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Nigerian Tribune's findings revealed that Miss Okonkwo, a primary 2 pupil of Transfiguration Primary School, Abakpa Nike, was living with her relative, Mrs Lovett Ejiofor, from Ezeagu Local Government Area of the state before her mysterious death.
When our correspondent visited the scene of incident, another relative of the deceased, Mrs Roselyn Okeke, claimed that Chinenyerem told her before allegedly committing suicide that she was living peacefully with Mrs Ejiofor.
But a residence of Okoro Close, who preferred anonymity, urged the police to investigate the death of Chinenyerem thoroughly and wondered how a 13-year old-girl would commit suicide.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Enugu State command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, confirmed the alleged suicide.
Amaraizu disclosed to our correspondent that the police had "recovered the dead body", adding that investigating into the suicide case was going on.
The police image maker stated further that a postmortem examination would be carried out on her corpse with a view to finding out how the girl died.
"We have a case of alleged suicide that occurred at No. 14 Chief Okoro close at Abakpa. It happened yesterday and we have recovered the dead body. It is being investigated; from a postmortem, we will know what killed her," she stated.
Amaraizu, however, declined to disclose whether anybody has been arrested in connection with the death.

It's not IMPOSSIBLE that she could have committed suicide cause nowadays kids as young as 10 or 11 are doing it. However, they should investigate more to be sure. I so much do not trust relatives...can be so devilish at times.

I cannot figure out one good reason why a young girl of that age will commit suicide.
