With the recent spate of unfortunate incidents happening to some youth corps members at their duty-posts, schoolwatch.com.ng team call on the Federal Government to eradicate the NYSC scheme.
This NYSC should be stopped completely. It has outlived its usefulness and more lives are been lost each year with nothing to show for it.
Forlorn report reaching schoolwatch.com.ng has it that a female National Youth Service Corps member, Miss Yetunde Idowu was raped to death by a 51-year-old man, Abdullahi Tanko, and his gang members.
The incident as gathered by schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine occurred on May 23, at about 12pm. What a painful death.
Investigation by schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine revealed that Tanko and his collaborators, tricked Idowu from her residence to Fate Road, where they raped the deceased inside their car to death.
Idowu’ corpse was found in a pool of blood at the Ilorin GRA.
A prosecutor of the Kwara State Police Command, Mr. Matthew Ologbon, has informed an Ilorin Magistrate’s Court, presided over by Mr. K.A.Yahyah,
The police prosecutor told the court that on May 23, at about 12pm, the police found Idowu in a pool of blood.
He said, “After they had raped Idowu, they carried her dead body to a nearby junction. The police located Tanko’s house through the blood traces of the deceased and the suspected killer was arrested.
“The mobile phone of the deceased was found with Tanko.”
Yahaya ordered that Tanko be remanded in prison, while he adjourned the case till August 10, 2015.
schoolwatch.com.ng team commiserated with the family of Yetunde on the untimely death of their daughter, urging them to take solace in God for the unquantifiable loss.
The loss of a loved one is always an unfathomable tragedy, which is compounded when such death occurs at an unripe age. We pray that God will grant repose to the soul of the departed, comfort Yetunde Idowu and his entire family and give them the strength to bear the irreparable loss. We also wish the immediate family of the deceased God’s succour in their moment of darkness. May her soul rest in peace, amen.
