The suspect, Festus Udoh, 29, allegedly lured the victim, who until her death was serving in Ogun State, into a forest where he killed her.

The commissioner explained that the police received complaint of missing person from the State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr. John Okon, and “immediately went into action.”
The suspect confessed that he dragged the girl into the bush, had sex with her and later strangled her to death.
When asked how he knew her, he said: “I knew her where she came to learn how to drive. My boss asked me to get Learner’s Permit for her at Oke-mosan, a suburb of Abeokuta.”
“She did not come to collect the permit and, after a week, she called that she wanted to collect it. I told her I was no longer at the driving school and she agreed to come and collect it.
“ I called her to come to Lafenwa, a suburb of Abeokuta and collect it. She came to Lafenwa and I later told her I wanted to have sex with her. She disagreed. I dragged her into a nearby bush and had sex with her. I killed her when she threatened to report me to her family. I tore her cloth the strangle her. ..”
The police said: “We went for a technical screening of fact left behind by the last person she made contact with, who is also the suspect. We were able to arrest him.
“She registered with him in a driving school by name Lizzy Driving school in Abeokuta.
“The man tactically and deceitfully convinced her on Saturday evening that her driving permit was ready.
“She decided to answer to his call and he cleverly and deceitfully brought her to this forest where he had a forceful and unlawful carnal knowledge of her and thereafter, strangled her to death.
“The passport photographs of the suspect were found at the scene of the incident which is a remarkable scene of crime evidence,” he said.
