Woman’s decomposing body found in Rivers, dumped by the roadside inside black nylon bag

The body of a woman in her mid 30s was, on Wednesday, discovered on Aggrey Road, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, wrapped in a black nylon and dumped by the roadside.

It was learnt that her assailants surreptitiously dumped her decomposing body, which was suspected to have been bated with acid, judging from the manner in which the skin was peeling off.

Residents of the area, who were disturbed by the stench oozing from the strange luggage, tore open the wrappings and discovered the decomposing body.

An eyewitness, who claimed to know the victim, told Southern City News that the deceased had been missing from her residence since Sunday, adding that she was from Benue State and a mother of four children.

She said, “I don’t know her name, but she was from Benue State and had four children. She had been missing for four days now.

“The body of the woman was wrapped in black nylon and dropped near the junction on Wednesday evening; it was the odour of her decomposing body that attracted passers-by, who tore open the wrappings and discovered the body with her skin already peeled off as if acid was poured on her.”

A resident near the spot where the corpse was dumped, who identified himself simply as Kessi, lamented the development, stressing that the discovery of female corpses in the state was becoming alarming.

He charged the security agencies to rise up to the challenge and apprehend whoever was behind the deaths.

Kessi stated, “Since May this year, we have heard about the discovery of different women’s corpses. One was at the Garrison junction, Aba Road, Port Harcourt; we also heard of two women strangled to death in different hotel rooms in Port Harcourt; and now, this one.

“This seems like a serial killer on the loose in the state and the police and other security agencies must wake up and face this issue.”

When contacted, the spokesman for the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident.

He stated that the police had evacuated the corpse to the mortuary and an investigation had been ordered by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mustapha Dandaura.

Omoni said, “The body of a middle-aged woman was found on Aggrey Road on Wednesday; the cause of death is not known for now, but the police have evacuated the corpse to the mortuary.

 “The Commissioner of Police has ordered an investigation and soon, the culprits will be apprehended and prosecuted accordingly.” -PUNCH
