SHOCK: Police Recover 20 Skulls at Aba Dump

Police has discovered a dumpsite near Aba, Abia State, where over 20 human skulls and decomposing bodies, including school children, were found.

The dumpsite locates at about kilometre 15 on the Aba/Azumini Highway at an area called “No man’s land” after Akpaa village in Obingwa Local Government of the state.

The discovery followed the arrest of four policemen attached to the Federal Highway Patrol unit of the Nigeria Police, Aba Section, who allegedly killed a 26-year-old man in Aba.

The policemen led by their officer-in-charge, Hyginus Omeze, who were ordered to be detained by the Area Commander for Aba, Rabiu Dayi, were alleged to have murdered Onyekachi Chukwu, 26, and dumped his body at the dump.

According to a source, on Sunday, June 23 Onyekachi, who hailed from Ahaba Imenyi in Isuikwuato Local Government and lived at No. 47 Ukaegbu Road, went out with his friends to drink in a hotel located on Ekenna Avenue. After that Onyekachi has spent the night in the house of one of his friends residing also in Ogbor hill.

When he knocked at the gate, the policemen came from nowhere and after beating him, arrested him without any reason. The cops also arrested the gate man of the friend’s house and the caretaker and took them to a hotel on Opobo Road, Ogbor hill, which also served as their base.

On the way to the hotel, the policemen left the other two men behind in the hotel and took Onyekachi out in their Toyota Prado SUV and drove towards Azumini. In one hour, the policemen were said to have come back to the hotel without the young man.

It was gathered that the policemen returned to the crime scene with two occupantstook and ordered them to wash their vehicle and contribute money for them to replace the bullets, which they claimed they had wasted and the people complied without knowing what the policemen did.

The bubble, however, busted when the relations of Onyekachi, after days of searching for him without success made formal complaint to the police, who swung into action immediately and traced their colleagues, who allegedly committed the dastardly acts to the hotel, where four of them were arrested.

According to Uchechi Chukwu, an elder brother to the deceased, who believed the young man was killed for rituals, his vital organs were removed; it was through the effort of the area commander that the policemen were arrested.

Then the arrested policemen, who have admitted their guilt, took their colleagues to the borrow-pit along the Aba/Azumini Highway, where they dumped the dismembered body of Onyekachi. Despite the deceaased body, also were found several human skulls, decomposing bodies including school children and a piece of iron zinc covered with blood.

There was equally a human organ, believed to be a bladder, left on the ground, where the slain man’s body was found and also hand gloves believed to have been worn by those who murdered the man. When contacted on phone, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abia Command, Geoffrey Ogbonna, while confirming the incident, denied that the young man was killed for ritual purposes.
