Bandits appear to be on the loose in the Federal Capital Territory as another hapless Nigerian, this time, a female Youth Service Corps member was brutally killed about 13 days after she was declared missing.

The security situation is deteriorating fast as many deaths have been recorded in the FCT in the past months including another corps member, Bormoi Yusuf, and a Vanguard journalist, Tordue Salem on Dec. 23, 2021 and Nov. 12, 2021 respectively.

The deceased, Stephanie Se-Ember Terungwa Achado, was found in the highbrow area of Maitama, Abuja, in the NYSC khaki trousers, defaced beyond recognition.

The woman, who was serving in the federal capital, was last seen in Logogoma area of the FCT on 14 April.

Persecondnews gathered that Stephanie was married to Terungwa Edward Achado, an Abuja businessman.

Meanwhile, the National Youth Service Corps has issued a statement on the murdered service member, Stephanie Se-Ember Terungwa Achado.

It gave a “chilling account’’ of how Stephanie’s body was found dressed in NYSC Khaki trousers.

“The corps’ attention was drawn to the body, said to have been discovered in Maitama, Abuja, following social media posts. Stephanie was serving in Abuja and was last seen in Logogoma on 14 April.

“The corpse was found wearing the NYSC khaki trouser with the face defaced beyond recognition.

“On account of this, Management reported the discovery to relevant security agencies to help identify the body.

“It was later confirmed that the remains were that of a missing Corps Member, Stephanie Se-Ember Terungwa, with State Code Number FC/21B/5807.

“Investigations are, however, currently ongoing to unravel the identity of the perpetrators of the dastardly act in order to bring them to justice.

“May her soul rest in peace,’’ said the Corps Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, in the statement obtained by Persecondnews on Thursday.
