A teenage girl identified as Amaka Nweke has reportedly been beaten to death by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Nweke, for dating a Yoruba boy.

New Telegraph reports that the incident led to outrage among residents of the Agility community at the Mile 12 area of Lagos, where the victim was living with her parents.

The parents who hail from the Southeast region of the country were said to have been more enraged that their daughter got pregnant for the boy, identified as Ibrahim Lawal.

Amaka’s parents were alleged to have repeatedly subjected her to torture, including starving her during pregnancy.

The deceased and her boyfriend were said to have met when she was in Senior Secondary School (SSS). Subsequently, the relationship led to the pregnancy Amaka had, which her parents fumed and kicked against.

She was later delivered of a baby boy, christened Zaeed.

Friends and other people familiar with the matter disclosed that Amaka went through hell in the hands of her parents during her pregnancy.

A lady who simply identified herself as Adebola, said “Amaka went through a lot. She really suffered.

“When Amaka and Ibrahim were dating, her parents were always threatening her. They told her that they didn’t want her to continue associating with the boy.

What broke the camel’s back was Amaka becoming pregnant for Ibrahim. Her parents were livid and starved her of food.

“Whenever her parents were beating her, some of us would approach and beg them to stop. They used to beat her with different objects even while she was pregnant.

Whenever her boyfriend brought food to her, they would not allow her to have access to it.”
