Police exhume 2 unidentified corpses

By Austin Ogwuda
ASABA—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, “Delta police command has exhumed two unidentified corpses in Asaba.”

A building  contractor (names withheld) reported that he visited a project site along Benin-Asaba expressway and noticed two heaps of sand like graves and traces of  blood as well as damage to the front iron door.
“He  (contractor) added that all efforts to get the securityman proved abortive as the site was deserted.”

He added that “when the bodies were eventually exhumed, there were signs of stabbing on the bodies”.
The PPRO further said that the “State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) has swung into action while efforts are on to trace the perpetrators of the act.

“The two corpses are deposited at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) mortuary and members of the  public looking for their missing relations are  advised to check the mortuary for possible identification”.
