Gunmen on Friday killed a female Senior Secondary School 3 student of St. Monica Girls Secondary School, Otukpo, Benue State.
The student was reportedly killed at the time she went to remove her clothes from where she hung them to dry.
The victim was writing the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examinations when she was killed.
“The girl was a student of St. Monica Girls Secondary School, Otukpo, and lived with her parents on No 38, Idikwu Road.

The gunmen were said to have left the house after killing the victim.
