A jealous youth corps member almost strangled his girlfriend to death over another man.
A jealous member of the National Youth Corps Service (NYSC) Batch ‘B’ member, Jeremiah Osewe, has been arrested for allegedly strangling his girlfriend, Stella Omorodion, a fellow corps member at the Issele-Uku Orientation Camp near Asaba, Delta State, after he found out that she was dating another man.
The report as contained in Leadership Newspaper, has that Osewe met Omorodion at the camp and they started a relationship but before then, she had another boyfriend, himself a corps member who was posted to Zamfara State but the guy worked his way and was redeployed to Delta.
When the guy got into town, he renewed his relationship with Omorodion unknown to the new lover.
It was gathered that someone sighted the lady and her former lover at the popular Mammy Market in the camp and reported to Osewe who got enraged at the affront of the new guy and mobilised his friends to the scene.
On getting to the scene, the hurt lover boy grabbed the girl on the neck and chocked her until she almost died before fellow corps members rushed to the scene to save the situation.
The state coordinator of the NYSC, Mrs. Esther Etukudo, confirmed the incident:
“We got the report of what transpired between two NYSC members and our findings revealed that it was a rival love relationship.
The girl was almost strangled to death by the angry corps member who claimed to be her boyfriend after what would have been a bloodbath.
They took the girl to the hospital for treatment and the boy was sanctioned for indiscipline.”
