The corpse of a former student of the University of Abuja, identified as Blessing Otunla, was on Sunday found naked inside a drain around the Iddo area of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja.
NEWS NAIJA learned that Otunla, a former English Language student of the university, was said to have traveled from Oyo State to Abuja on Saturday in order to get her transcript.
A student of the university, name withheld said, “We saw the dead body of the lady at a permanent site area of the school inside the gutter that is along the road.
“Someone who knew her identified her body. She graduated two years ago. The development has caused panic among those of us staying in the area.”
A relative of Otunla with the Twitter handle, @Dondekojo, confirmed the development.
She faulted the process of having to travel to get a transcript after graduating.
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 transcripts? She traveled to Abuja for her transcript and was found dead in a gutter; so sad.”
