The remains of a police inspector attached to Hon Chiji Collins, a former speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, has been discovered dumped inside a forest in Imo state.
The victim, identified as Charles, was discovered dead in a jungle in the state’s Oguta Local Government Area.
It was learnt that a driver and Charles, an Inspector of Police, were abducted in the Ohaji/Egbema council area of the state a few weeks ago.
Our correspondent learnt that they were driving in a Hilux vehicle when they were intercepted by their attackers and taken into the bush.
The driver was eventually discovered dead.
Charles’ already-decomposing body was also later discovered a few days ago.
The victim’s co-workers informed our correspondent that the death of the state’s Mbaise-based Inspector of Police had saddened the command.
The body of Charles was discovered in a bush in the Oguta area, according to one of the individuals who asked not to be named.
“His body has already started to decompose. In such a terrible way, he was killed. He received a neck wound. This is so repulsive,” he said.
When reached, Henry Okoye, spokesman for the Imo Police Command said CP Muhammed Berde, the state’s police commissioner, had ordered a group of police detectives to track down the murderers.
He asserted that the leadership would see to it that those responsible for the Inspector’s death be apprehended and made to suffer the full force of the law.
