The corpse found wearing the NYSC khaki trouser with the face defaced beyond recognition in the highbrow Maitama district of Abuja has been confirmed by the police as that of a missing corps member deployed to the nation’s capital, Stephanie Se-Ember Terungwa.
The NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, made this known in a statement, yesterday, entitled, ‘Re: Missing Body.’
Terungwa, a graduate of Microbiology from the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, went missing April 14 after she left home fully dressed in her NYSC uniform. Unfortunately, she did not return alive.
Her death is still being treated as “unexplained.” However, sources at the NYSC headquarters believe that at this stage, there was a third-party involvement.
