A member of National Youth Service Corps, who was declared missing last week, has been found dead by police in a bush at Mawuko in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The late youth corp member, Miss Modupe Kawose, was raped and strangled to death, allegedly by a 29-year-old driving instructor, Festus Udo, who was teaching her how to drive a vehicle.
Udo, who is an instructor at the Lizzy Driving School, is now in the custody of the state police command in Abeokuta.
The state police commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, who led newsmen to the scene where the crime was committed, said that police waded into the issue after the Ogun State NYSC coordinator, John Okoh, reported that the youth corps member was missing.
The suspect told newsmen that, he sent a message to the youth corps member last Saturday, that her driving permit was ready and she should come and collect it.
Instead, the suspect recalled dragging the youth corp member to a forest, where he tore her cloth, raped her, and used the torn cloth to strangle her to death.
