The body of a youth corps member, Solomon Daloba, has been found at Akpata, a notorious area of Jos, Plateau State.
The Computer Science graduate of Bingham University was last seen on Monday last week at his aunty’s residence where he was living before his corpse was found on Friday at Akpata, an area known for illicit activities and drug peddling, reports said.
It was gathered that Daloba, a corper serving with the Industrial Training Fund (ITF), had not been going home since Monday after closing from work.
It was learnt that the Taraba State indigene had been quiet and aloof before the incident prompting family members to suspect that he was facing some emotional challenges.
The Public Relations Officer, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) headquarters, Mrs. Bose Aderibigbe, confirmed the death of Daloba, saying the police were investigating the incident.
“What we learnt was that he had not been going home since last week Monday. The body was found at Akpata and his next-of-kin has been contacted; the police have commenced investigation into the sad and unfortunate incident,” she stated.
