The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has confirmed that the dead body found in Abuja on NYSC uniform was that of a female corps member, Stephanie Se-ember Terungwa Edward Achado, who was declared missing on 14 April, in Abuja.
Stephanie’s family had earlier declared her missing in a social media post.
She was said to have left her home in her NYSC uniform to participate in Community Development Service, CDS, but never returned.
Report claims some of her vital parts were removed and taken away by her killers.
A statement issued by the NYSC on Facebook read: “The attention of the NYSC Management has been drawn to the pictures making the rounds in the social media of a missing Corps member deployed to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
“The corpse was found wearing the NYSC khaki trouser, with the face defaced beyond recognition.
“On account of this, Management reported the discovery to relevant security agencies to help identify the body. It was later confirmed that the remains were that of a missing Corps member, Stephanie Se-Ember Terungwa, with State Code Number FC/21B/5807.
“Investigations are, however, currently ongoing to unravel the identity of the perpetrators of the dastardly act in order to bring them to justice.
“May her soul rest in peace.”
