The decomposed body of senior administrative staff of the Federal University of Lafia (FULafia) in Nasarawa State, Mrs. Angelina Tyem, was discovered in her apartment in Lafia in the early hours of yesterday Sunday, October 4, four days after she reportedly disappeared.

 

Tyem was a former candidate for the Akwanga North constituency in the 2019 General elections under the platform of NNPP and the Women Leader of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), FULafia Chapter.

It was gathered that the decayed body of Tyem, was discovered by neighbors in her apartment located at Sabon Pegi area of Lafia town. 

 

A resident of the area who spoke with The Nation said that the dead body of the deceased was badly mutilated, indicating she was stabbed multiple times.

“The neighbors told us they had not seen her for the past four days and assumed she traveled till her dead body was found in her room,” he said.


It was further gathered a few weeks ago, the late Tyem survived an accident along Akwanga-Jos road while assailants invaded her apartment in Lafia and carted away all her belongings.

 

Chairman of SSANU, Federal University of Lafia Chapter, Monday Seriki, who visited the scene, alleged the deceased was murdered and her car and phones were not found in the apartment.


“I was called this morning around 9 am that our women leader was found dead in her room and that the neighbors discovered her dead body. That because she was meant to travel last Wednesday and so the neighbors thought she had traveled. But somehow they noticed that the house was oozing with a bad stench and one of the neighbors while searching found that her kitchen door from the backyard was widely opened and her dead body was found in the house,” said Seriki.


“We went there in the company of the police; I even have the pictures. We went inside the house and noticed that she was stabbed. She was murdered four days ago by unknown persons. Nobody knows the whereabouts of her car and her phones. Right now, her body was conveyed by the University Ambulance to Sandaji Mortuary in Lafia,” Seriki narrated.
