The affected neighbour, Chukwujekwu Chukuweze, was said to have been the last person to sleep the night of the incident.

The young man said that when one of his colleagues woke up at night to ease himself, he saw the neighbour's door ajar and his purse dumped outside, without giving it much thought.

In George’s words:

“My colleague felt they were probably dumped by the owner, and he went back to sleep. The next morning, we woke up to the news that someone entered into the man's room and took his business phones(an android infinix/tecno phone), the ones he uses to communicate with clients. He had an iPhone X all on same spot, but it wasn't taken, despite being more expensive…”

They collected money from us

George added that the services of touts were employed and they were tortured. Access to their relatives was cut off as their phones were seized.

Not only that, he added that they were extorted N50,000 each for a phone that was not worth much.

George revealed that their primary place of assignment principal had to come bail them out and they gave the touts the money through him.

George's comments

When contacted him, George said he had to write about the ordeal on Facebook because he felt NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) was not doing much even after they had reported the incident to their local government inspector.

He said:

"My LGI and the state coordinator has been aware, the state coordinator assured the case is being handled and the culprit would be brought to book, but it's been a week now, no actions taken..."

NYSC member declared dead

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a female corps member declared missing on Thursday, April 14 in Abuja, was found dead with her body mutilated.
