The joy of a young lady who just graduated and basking in the euphoria of her achievement has been cut short as she was raped and strangled to death.
The Ogun State Police Command has a tough case on its hands to unveil how a 21-year-old fresh graduate of the Lagos State Polytechnic, Ikorodu campus, identified as Nafisat, was allegedly raped to death 24 hours after she graduated from the institution at her residence in Ogijo, Ikorodu, an area which falls under the purview of the Ogun Command.
According to Nigerian Tribune, the late Nafisat was reportedly raped and strangled to death on April 27, 2015, a situation that has led her mother hospitalized over the trauma of losing her daughter.
The deceased was be alone in the family apartment and still basking in the euphoria of her academic success when the rapists reportedly pounced on her and after sexually defiling her, strangled her to death and left her naked body sprawled on the bed.
It was gathered that it was her mother, a teacher, who, upon returning from school, found her daughter naked and in a pool of blood, before she alerted her neighbours.
There was, however, no trace of the perpetrators of the dastardly act as residents of the area were still baffled by the circumstances surrounding the death, though a resident said that two young men who are neighbours of the late lady have been arrested.
It was also gathered that the police could not perform a postmortem on the remains of the deceased as her body had been buried according to Islamic rites.
