The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, who confirmed the incident to DAILY GUIDE, said his outfit received a call that there was a robbery incident and dispatched a team to the place.
According to him, when the police got to the scene, the robbers had fled and it turned out to be not just robbery but also a homicide.
He indicated that the police were suspecting that the deceased was raped and killed by the robbers.
The body of girl has been deposited at the Tamale Teaching Hospital morgue pending autopsy.
ASP Ebenezer Tetteh disclosed that investigation at the hospital revealed that there were some traces of blood and semen on the private part of the deceased.
No suspects have been arrested by the police yet but they suspect that the distressed minor might have recognized one or some of the criminals and so they decided to kill her.
He called on the public to volunteer information to the police to apprehend the suspects.
DAILY GUIDE learnt that normally after school, the girl goes home, changes her uniform and goes to her parents’ shop.
Eyewitnesses said at about 1pm, the parents of the deceased, realizing that their daughter was not at the shop as usual, decided to go to the house to find out if she was there.
According to them, the parents went home only to find their daughter dead in the room with blood around her private part.
