Tragedy as struck as a 26-year-old Nigerian university student, Blessing Karami was found dead a week after being declared missing.
Karami, who was a student of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), was declared missing on September 11, 2023, after leaving her place of work in Garki, Abuja.
The deceased’s elder brother, Genesis Moses Karami, who relocated from Kaduna to Abuja to lead the search said her decomposing body was discovered in the bush in Karmo district of the Federal Capital Territory
“We saw her decomposed body in the bush here at Karmo, it’s not something we can move, we have to arrange with the environmental people to come and help us pack. We cannot travel with it. We just have to bury it here. It seems she died for days due to the nature of the decomposition,” he said.
He disclosed that the police had arrested one Aminu, an alleged boyfriend to the deceased who was questioned regarding her disappearance.
Aminu is being held at the Divisional Police Headquarters, Durumi, for questioning.
Meanwhile, the late student’s brother was also at the station explaining to the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), that on Tuesday evening when he left the station, he received a strange call giving details about the sister’s body but it turned out to be false.
“The caller said he saw a female body in Idu, so we asked him to describe what she was wearing, and he told us exactly what we were told my sister wore to office the day she went missing,” Moses Karami said.
According to him, after he kept trying to contact the DPO and it was not going through, he had to go to the police station at Karmo
He said he met a group of policemen, but the caller kept toying with them as he kept changing locations until they got tired and left.
He, however, confirmed that his sister was found dead on Wednesday.
“We saw her decomposed body in the bush here at Karmo, it’s not something we can move, we have to arrange with the environmental people to come and help us pack.
“We cannot travel with it. We just have to bury it here. It seems she died for days due to the nature of the decomposition,” Moses Karami said.
