NYSC speaks on murder of corp member.

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Monday reacted to the murder of Modupe Tawose, the 23-year-old, 2017 Batch ‘A’ corps member serving with the Ogun State Ministry of Housing in Abeokuta allegedly raped and killed by her driving instructor, Festus Udoh, 29.

Naija News reported that Tawose was raped and killed on Dec. 9 in Ogun and her decomposing body was discovered in a bush at Abule Ayo where she was tied to a tree.

The suspect, who confessed to the crime, is being remanded in prison while awaiting trial.

Saddened by the incident, Mr John Okpo, the Ogun NYSC Coordinator assured the family of the deceased in Ibadan during a condolence visit that the suspect would face the wrath of the law.

Okpo said, “The NYSC family nationwide is sad over the raping and eventual murder of our beloved and patriotic corps member, Late Miss Modupe Tawose.

“We strongly condemn the act and will go to any length to defend and fight for the rights of our members and in this case, ensure justice is delivered.

“We will do all to ensure Mr Festus Udoh is brought to book as this will serve as a deterrent to other miscreants and evil doers in the society.”
