Autopsy report reveals she died of strangulation, which led to lack of oxygen supply to her body, her private part was mutilated too.
Last year, The Abuja Police HQ released a statement saying she died due to drug abuse but the Autopsy did not find any drug traces on her.
The Judicial panel has ordered the police to release her body for final interment.
Ifeoma Abugu was a 20-year-old NYSC member who was arrested from her fiance’s apartment at Wumba Village, Lokogoma, Abuja on September 10, 2020, by SARS officers and never returned home alive.
A native of Ugbaike, Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State, Ifeoma graduated from the Institute of Management and Technology, IMT, Enugu State.
The SARS officers that took Ifeoma away had apparently come for Ifeoma’s fiance, one Afam Ugwunwa, with whom she had her wedding introduction four days earlier. On missing Afam, they arrested Ifeoma Abugu instead.
Like most people who have been picked up by men of the SARS police unit, Ifeoma Abugu did not live to tell her story. Ifeoma was reported dead at the Gwagwalada Specialist Hospital, Abuja, the next day, September 11.
