A widow with six children was found dead on her farm at Tungan-Dallatu village in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC).
Her corpse was found on the farm Tuesday.
The deceased, Rakiya Ibrahim, was said to have left home  around 4.00p.m. on that fateful day to work on her farm but failed to return home.
Our reporter learnt that her relatives went to the farm to search for her only to find her dead body with her eyes and mouth filled with sand.
An in-law of the deceased, who is the ward head of the area, Malam Adamu Danladi, informed our reporter that an examination conducted on her body by some women revealed that the victim might have been raped by her assailant before or after killing her.
Danladi said the matter was reported at the Zuba police division, from where policemen were drafted to assist in evacuating the body.
He said her body was laid to rest the following morning.
When contacted, the Zuba Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Ayobami Surajudeen, a Chief Superintendent, confirmed the incident, saying  investigation was on-going.
