Horror as corpses of 2 ladies found at Umunze


By Sunny A. David, Awka
Residents of Loum village in Umunze, Orumba South Local Government Area of Anambra State are still in shock following the discovery of the corpses of two young ladies along Umunze-Abia expressway.
Our correspondent gathered that the corpses were discovered by farmers on their way to farm before alerting the Umunze vigilante group who subsequently invited police operatives that later evacuated the remains.
According to one of the vigilantes who saw the bodies, “the corpses were lying by the expressway after Federal Government College of Education, (Technical), Umunze, just at the entrance of the path­way to Loum villagers’ farms.
“We were alerted by the farmers that made the discovery in the morning. When we got there, we found two female naked bodies.
“We also discovered that the bodies had their tongues cut off and looked freshly killed. We had to invite the police who came and took the corpses away,” he said.
Corroborating the story, the state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Haruna Mohammed said that the command got wind of the incident and rushed to the spot.
“We took the bodies to General Hospital, Umunze (former Cottage Hospi­tal) where they were confirmed dead. Autopsy revealed that the bodies appeared to have ingested some poisonous substance,” he said.
SP Mohammed said that police were still in­vestigating the crime but suspects that the ladies were killed in one of the neighbouring communities and dumped in Umunze.
The mortuary attendant of General Hospital, Umunze was not pres­ent when our correspondent visited there. However, an NYSC member who works in the hospital con­firmed the incident. She said that she was pres­ent when the bodies were brought in by the police.
