Police launch investigation into lady’s corpse found in Jos car wash

Police have launched an investigation after residents discovered the corpse of a young woman at a car wash on Sunday in Farin Gada area of Jos North local government area of Plateau State.

Details gathered from some online sources revealed that the lifeless body, identified as that of a young girl named Ruth was dumped at the car wash close to Hariz Filing station near Farin Gada bridge in Jos.

Vanguard reports that the lady’s underwear was hanging on her legs, an indication that she was raped. Her legs were dusty, an indication that there was a struggle, or probably, she was raped somewhere and her corpse dumped there. She was also stabbed.

Locals said the victim lives in Zaruma area and started a new job in Rayfield about a week ago. They presumed it was when she closed in the evening that she met her untimely death in the hands of some unscrupulous elements. “She was found with machete cuts on the body at the car wash,” an eyewitness said.

The eyewitness who declined to be named said the incident mounted tension in the area as residents and students staged a protest against the killing of the lady but the protesters were resisted by security agents so that the situation does not escalate to crisis.

“It was alleged that the victim disagreed with her yet-to-be-identified boyfriend who is suspected to be a member of a cult group.

“He probably might have killed her and dumped the corpse, and hoodlums almost took advantage of the protest to attack people before security agents intervened,” the eyewitness said.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Alfred Alabo, confirmed the incident but gave no details saying, “the incident is under investigation so I cannot disclose full details, once I get the signal, I will let you have the information.”
