ASABAâ€”MEN of Delta State police command are currently investigating the circumstances that led to the killing of two able-bodied men in Asaba, who were later buried in shallow graves.
The shocking incident, similar to the recent strange dumping of five able-bodied men in the east, occurred along Asaba-Benin highway.
According to State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr. Charles Muka, â€œDelta police command has exhumed two unidentified corpses in Asaba.â€
A buildingÂ contractor (names withheld) reported that he visited a project site along Benin-Asaba expressway and noticed two heaps of sand like graves and traces ofÂ blood as well as damage to the front iron door.
â€œHeÂ (contractor) added that all efforts to get the securityman proved abortive as the site was deserted.â€
He added that â€œwhen the bodies were eventually exhumed, there were signs of stabbing on the bodiesâ€.
The PPRO further said that the â€œState Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) has swung into action while efforts are on to trace the perpetrators of the act.
â€œThe two corpses are deposited at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) mortuary and members of theÂ public looking for their missing relations areÂ advised to check the mortuary for possible identificationâ€.
