SCENE OF THE EZU RIVER DEAD BODIES IN JANUARY

More than a month after dead bodies were seen floating on Ezzu River, at the boundary between Anambra and Enugu states, about ten unknown human bodies that are in varying stages of decomposition have been spotted in a burrow pit at Mgbirichi, along the ever busy Owerri-Port Harcourt federal highway.The shocking discovery was made by a group of women who were on their way to the farm and suddenly stumbled on two dead bodies that were dumped in the pit.

Frightened by their discovery, the hapless women rushed back home to announce the development to their fellow villagers who then reported their gory findings to the Divisional Police Headquarters, Umuagwo.

Aside the two fresh bodies which have since being buried at the site where they were discovered, other decaying human parts littered inside the burrow pit.

According to one of the villagers who pleaded anonymity, “Health workers under the watchful eyes of the visiting policemen later buried the two fresh bodies in the burrow pit, while the other decayed human parts, including bones which littered the place, were not attended to.”

When contacted, the new Police Public Relations Officer, Joy Elemoko, a deputy superintendent of police, DSP, could not comment on the issue because she was unable to get across to the Divisional Police Office, DPO, in charge of the area.

Nigeria Ranks Third On Global Terrorism Index Despite Drop In Deaths – Report

Boko Haram

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
