A 400-level student of the University of Jos (UNIJOS), identified as Ruth Yakadi, has been gruesomely raped and murdered in Jos, Plateau State.
The corpse of the young lady was found dumped at a car wash close to a bridge in the Farin Gada area of Jos North Local Government Area on Sunday, December 11.
The victim’s underwear was hanging on her legs which were dusty, indicating that she was raped before being killed.
A source, who spoke anonymously to Vanguard, claimed the victim had an altercation with her boyfriend, said to be a cultist, before she was found dead.
“Tension mounted in the area as residents and students staged a protest against the killing of the lady but the protesters were resisted by security agents so that the situation does not escalate to crisis.
It was alleged that the victim disagreed with her yet-to-be-identified boyfriend who is suspected to be a member of a cult group, he probably might have killed her and dumped the corpse, and hoodlums almost took advantage of the protest to attack people before security agents intervened,” the witness told the publication
The PPRO of the State Police Command, DSP Alfred Alabo, has confirmed the tragic incident but gave no details.
“The incident is under investigation but I am yet to get full details. Once I get the signal, I will let you have the information,” he stated.
Meanwhile, friends and family of the deceased have taken to Facebook to mourn her passing, and demand for justice.
