The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has uncovered a decomposing corpse of a middle-aged woman suspected to be a rape victim behind United Primary School, Oba in Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The NSCDC spokesperson, Mr Edwin Okadigbo said the corpse was found half-naked on Tuesday morning behind the primary building by indigenes of the community who alerted the cops in the area.
He said the body of the lady whose identity was yet to be ascertained suspected to have been raped to death. Okadigbo said:
“On the 25/2/2020 at about 07:30am, at United Primary School, Oba before Igwe’s palace in Idemili South a dead body (female) suspected to be victim of rape was seen lying half naked behind one of the primary school buildings.
“The Divisional officer of NSCDC Idemili South, SC Ochie Paul with his officers visited the scene, confirmed and discovered that the body had started decomposing and could cause epidemic outbreak among the school children.”
Okadigbo said photographs of the body has been taken and the Divisional officer, the Igwe’s representative, and the chairman of the Local Government have all been alerted.
He added that investigation has also been opened into the matter to ascertain the circumstances that led to the lady’s death and to unravel her identity.
