NYSC Corps Member Found Dead In Ogun Apartment

A tragedy struck last Wednesday when a serving member of the National Youth Service Corps, identified as Medaiyese Emmanuel, reportedly died in his apartment in the Sogbesan Street, Oluwo area of Abeokuta, Ogun State.

PUNCH Metro gathered on Sunday that the incident was said to have occurred after the mother of the deceased failed in an attempt to reach Emmanuel on his mobile phone.

When the deceased’s phone rang out after several attempts, the mother was said to have begun to look for someone who would help check up on Emmanuel at his apartment in Sogbesan.

Our correspondent learnt from an eyewitness who identified himself as Toyo that the mother phoned one of the corps member’s friends, identified simply as Olumide, about her inability to reach Emmanuel on the phone.
