A police search party has discovered the decomposing body of a
policeman kidnapped about three weeks ago in Rivers State.
His remains were found on Thursday.
Sergeant Lawrence Igbero, attached to the Police Mobile Force (PMF)
Unit 56, was abducted on Ogoni Road, Rivers State.
The Nation reports that the police tracked the deceased's phone which
they noticed was still being used by someone, who later claimed to
have bought the phone.
“Through the ‘buyer’, the police tracked and arrested the ‘seller’. It
was then they confessed to have killed the sergeant and dumped his
body in the forest.
“It was discovered that the suspects were responsible for several
other kidnappings and snatching of vehicles and motorcycles in Ogoni.
“The body of the sergeant was evacuated by the search party. He was
identified because his uniform was still on the body,” the newspaper
quoted a source as saying.
Police spokesman, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident.
Omoni said the remains of the cop had been deposited in the mortuary
