Following the recent making the rounds that the Corps Member who was reported to have committed suicide was serving in Kogi State, the Coordinator of NYSC in the state, Mr. Lasaki Taofic has described it as a false and misleading.
The Coordinator made this known through a press release made available to Accurate Newspaper through the the Assistant Director, Press and Public Relations, Rev. Tayo Adedapo.
Part of the press release read “Report that reached the NYSC Kogi Secretariat from Enugu NYSC said one Miss Princess Maturayo Bolufenu a serving corps member with them, of Kogi State origin has committed suicide after drinking two bottles of snippers in Enugu. However, the on- line report of THE TRIBUNE NEWS PAPERS gave a mixed up of the story.
Moturayo died in ENUGU not Kogi. Moturayo’s place of service – Enugu not Kogi.
Moturayo’s state of origin is KOGI.
Please disapprove the on-line edition of the sad story which portrayed Moturayo place of service as Kogi, thank you”.
The Coordinator however describe the death of Moturayo as painful and heartbreaking. He pray that her soul rest in peace.
