40 Decomposing Bodies Discovered in Anambra River

It was a gory scene, Saturday as the people of Amansea in Awka, Anambra State, South East Nigeria discovered  40 dead bodies floating in a River in their community.  

People from the community and some neighbouring ones besieged the Ezu river yesterday to catch a glimpse of the dead bodies. 

The river is at the boundary between Enugu and Anambra states and the dead bodies were found at the old Enugu-Onitsha road area of the river.

The corpses whose identities were unknown, were suspected to have been dumped in the river Friday night by unknown persons.

The traditional ruler of Amansea said the community had never witnessed such a gory sight before, while the Commissioner of Police in the state said the dead bodies remained a mystery as there had been no communal clash in Enugu or Anambra where many people were killed. He said investigations are ongoing...

Meanwhile the governor of the state, Peter Obi, has cut short his working trip abroad to return to the state to enable him visit the scene.
