The suspect, Festus Udoh, 29, who hails from Edo state, told the newsmen: “I called her Saturday to come and take her driver’s licence but she came on Sunday. I told her to meet me at Lafenwa. On getting there, I told her to follow me to where I could do the passport for her. On getting to Mawuko, she asked where we were going. I told her we were going to my house to snap passport. On getting to a bush path, I told her I wanted to make love to her but she objected, so I dragged her into the bush.
“I tore her cloth and tied her with her cloth and raped her. While raping her, she said she would tell her people, so I raped and killed her.
Commissioner for Police,Ogun State Command Ahmed Illiyasu said the suspect was caught when Modupe’s fellow corp members expected her and did not see her and they went to the driving school and complained to the owner. The owner made calls to the suspect and when he arrived he handed him over to the police at Lafenwa from where he was tranfered to Anti-kidnapping Unit and would be transfer to Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad for more investigation.
