Police find 2 decomposing bodies in Asaba

Two decompos­ing bodies of tricyclists killed by unknown persons have been dscovered in Asaba where they were dumped.
The shocking discov­ery have sent cold shiv­ers into the hearts of tri­cyclists in the city some of who identified the rot­ting bodies as their col­leagues.
The Authority gath­ered that the corpses were discovered by a police officer in a bush along Onitsha-Asaba Expressway close to the old Deputy Governor’s office.
The police officer, the report said, had taken his car to a mechanic workshop in the area for repairs. He had noticed a disagreeable smell at the back when he went there to relieve himself. This had drawn his curios­ity to the spot where the corpses were dumped.
Eyewitnesses said the corpses were already de­composing and that the smell from the dead bod­ies had become a con­cern for residents of the area before the discovery that resulted in the alarm that attracted the general public.
Some members of the Hausa/Fulani com­munity who were also attracted by the alarm identified the victims as Abubakar Suleiman and Hamza Abdulahi Alhaji both of whom were de­clared missing about two weeks ago.
They said it was obvi­ous that the victims were killed while their tri­cycles were stolen from them by the assailants.
Residents of the area alleged that such deaths are becominga recurrent decimal as many persons had been killed in mys­terious circumstances over the years and their corpses dumped in un­developed plots.
Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO) DSP Andrew Aniamaka, who confirmed the develop­ment, said the Commis­sioner was in the middle of a marathon meeting with senior police offi­cers in attempt to get to the root of the matter.
He also revealed four persons have already been arrested in connec­tion with the incident, adding that a spray paint­er who was found with one of the stolen tricycles was among the suspects.
