The police in Ogun State arrested a 29 year old driving instructor, Festus Udo, a native of Uromi in Edo State for rapping and strangulating a female corper to death.
The offense was committed in a forest at Odeda Local Government area where the decomposed body of the victim, Miss Modupe Taiyese was found.
The Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ilyasu, who led journalists to the scene of the crimeâ€Ž at Abule Ayo area in Mawuko, Odeda local government of the state, said the suspect had confessed.
Mr. Ilyasu said the suspect was a driving instructorâ€Ž with Lizzy Driving School, Abeokuta, where the victim registered to learn driving.
He said Mr. Udo, an indigene of â€ŽUromi in Edo State, on Saturday lured the corps member into the bush with the promise of giving her a driving permit.
The commissioner said police received complaint of a missing person from the coordinator of the NYSC in the state, John Okon, and immediately went into action.
â€œWe went for a powerful, technical screening of fact left behind by the last person she made contact with, who is the suspect,â€ Mr. Iliyasu said.
â€œTechnically the information led to one person by name Festus Udoh, an indigene of Uromi from Edo state, who was teaching this innocent deceased corper, Taiyese Modupe, how to drive,â€ he said.
â€œWe were able to uncover this nefarious act and he led us to this place and confessed,â€ the commissioner said.
â€œThe man tactically and deceitfully convinced her on Saturday evening that her driving permit is ready.
â€œShe decided to answer to his call and he cleverly and deceitfully apprehended this lady and brought her down to this forest where he had a forceful, illegal and unlawful carnal knowledge of her and thereafter strangled her to death,â€ Mr. Ilyasu said.
He said operatives were given â€œa matching orderâ€ to make a breakthrough in the case given the national importance of the case, since the victim was a corps member.
â€œThe passport photographs of the suspect were found at the scene of the incident which is a remarkable scene of crime evidence,â€ he said.
The suspect, who spoke to journalists, admitted the crime.
â€œAfter I took her to this place, I told her that I wanted to have sex with her, she said no, but I dragged her into the bush and had sex with her,â€ Mr. Udoh confessed.
â€œAfter having sex with her, she said she will tell her family; that was when I tore her cloth and used it to strangle her neck, as she was gasping, I now ran away,â€ he said.
