The residents were awakened Monday night to a single cry for help but only to find young Obu in a pool of blood gruesomely murdered.
Some residents said she was with a young man, suspected to be her boyfriend, a few minutes before she was found dead in a pool of blood.
However, the young man is yet to be found and identified.
The residents at the moment are unable to explain what caused the killing of the young girl many described as lively and friendly.
Meanwhile, others suspect it could be as a result of a relationship gone bad.
The police have since conveyed the body to the morgue to commence investigation.
