The body of a Graduate of the University of Abuja identified as Blessing Otunla, has been discovered in a drain at Iddo Sarki village, Airport Road during the weekend. She was reportedly raped and killed.
The deceased was in the nation’s capital from Oyo State to sort her certificate and transcript of results.
A relative, Ayobami, lamented Blessing’s fate via his Twitter page ((@dondekojo).
“I lost a cousin, and it’s emblematic of the state of the country. Why do graduates need to travel all the way for a transcript? She travelled to Abuja for her transcript and was found dead in a gutter,” he wrote.
The FCT Police Command has commenced an investigation, according to ASP Mariam Yusuf, the Public Relations Officer.
The spokesperson said the Commissioner of Police, Bala Ciroma has ordered a manhunt for the perpetrators.
