The governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, has promised N5 Million to anyone with information on the bodies found in Ezu River, Amansea, Akwa North Local Government area of the state.
The corpses that could not be easily identified were suspected to have been dumped in the river on Friday night by unknown persons.
Gov Obi, who was away to the United Kingdom on official duty at the time of the discovery of the dead bodies, cut short his trip after being briefed by his aides on the mysterious development.
According to Vanguard, he said the corpses obviously floated from elsewhere into Anambra state. “The fact that River Ezu flows into Anambra State from another state shows that these corpses obviously floated from elsewhere into our state. As you can see, the bodies are already decomposing and this shows that this incident happened some time ago. But I do not care where the corpses floated from; I am worried that this type of scenario could be witnessed in our country in this age and time. This is a most barbaric and unacceptable development. It cannot happen in any decent society.”
He explained that the N5 million would go to anyone who provided necessary information which would help to unravel the circumstances surrounding the strange incident.
