The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) says it is working to ensure that the suspected rapist and killer of its member in Ogun State, Tawose Modupe, 23, is brought to book.
Recall that, a driving instructor, identified as Festus Udoh, had narrated how he lured Modupe into a bush at Mawuko, Odeda Local Government Area of the state, raped and strangled her.
NYSC Ogun State Coordinator, Mr. John Okpo, visited the family of the deceased on Wednesday, assuring that the corps would protect and defend the rights of members.
He said, “The entire NYSC family is grieved over the demise of the corps member. We condemn the act in its totality. We are working to ensure that the perpetrator of the heinous crime is brought to book. We will continue to protect and defend the rights of corps members.
“We pray to God to console the family in their moment of grief. We also advise the corps members to be security conscious always and promptly report any security threat to the appropriate authorities.”
An uncle to the deceased, Hakeem Okunola, thanked the NYSC for the visit and its prompt action which led to the arrest of the alleged killer.
