15 Unidentified Bodies Found Floating on Ezu River in Anambra State

The people of Amansea community in Anambra state woke up to a gory sight on Saturday morning to find about 15 bodies floating on Ezu, a river at the boundary between Anambra and Enugu states.

The decomposing bodies, all male, were without any noticeable body mutilations or injuries and could not be identified by the people of Amansea community who live in the area on Anambra state side of the divide. They added that no member of the community had also been reported missing.

The bodies were discovered in the early hours of the morning when they went to fetch water.

According to Channels TV, the river is the only source of water for the five communities of Amansea, Ebenebe, Ugbenu, Ugbene and Oba-Ofemili and the development had caused a lot of discomfort to the people.

The Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Musa Daura, maintained that Enugu and Anambra enjoy relative peace and so could not decipher where the corpses were coming from. He wondered how the avalanche of dead bodies got there because he had not heard of any communal clash whether in Enugu or Anambra where many people were killed.

The villagers were advised not to fetch water from the river until the bodies are cleared and buried.

This is really shocking and we hope the police are able to unravel the mystery behind this case.

      could have a been a vehicle (bus probably) accident! since they said no body parts were missing…hopefully an autopsy is done to find out what type of trauma they suffered that led to their death…May they rest in perfect peace
