The corpse of a former student of the University of Abuja, Blessing Otunla, was found naked inside a drain around Iddo area of the Federal Capital Territory on Sunday.

Otunla, a former English Language student of the university, was said to have travelled from Oyo State to Abuja on Saturday in order to collect her transcript.

The same student of the university, who didn’t want his name mentioned, said, “We saw the dead body of the lady inside the gutter at a permanent site area of the school  that is along the road.

Someone who also knew her and identified her body said she graduated two years ago. The development has caused fear among those of us staying in the area.

A relative of Otunla with the Twitter handle, @Dondekojo, confirmed the development.

She wrote, “I lost a cousin yesterday, and it’s emblematic of the state of the country. Why do graduates need to travel all the way for transcript? She travelled to Abuja for her transcript and was found dead in a gutter; so sad.”

Mariam Yusuf, the Police spokesperson in the FCT confirmed the incident, saying the command had launched a full scale investigation into the matter.
