Robbers kill female NYSC corp member in Delta

A female youth corps member was on weekend stabbed to death at Okpanam, behind a filling station, close to Asaba town, Delta State by armed robbers.

It was learnt that the lady, whose name could not be immediately ascertained, had travelled and ran into the robbers, as she was about opening the door of her apartment. The armed gang, which was operating in the area had  accosted her and asked her to surrender her mobile handset and other valuables.

She was said to have been stabbed on the neck following her alleged refusal to yield to the robbers’ demand.
She was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre immediately the robbers left, but gave up the ghost while on the way, following heavy loss of blood.
