There is palpable anxiety in communities in Benin River in Warri North Local Government Area over six unidentified male corpses found floating on Opu-Binideyei Creek, border between Warri North Local Government Area and Warri South-west Local Government Area.
The incident which remains a mystery, has become a source of worry for most of the Egbema Communities in the area.
An anonymous source from one of the Egbema Communities around Benin River, who alerted our correspondent about the incident, alleged that the unidentified bodies found by commuters plying the creek, were said to have been handcuffed and blindfolded.
The source also revealed that some vital body parts were severed from the said dead bodies.
Our correspondent gathered that the incident had caused serious tension in the area, as the corpses were yet to be identified by residents.
This has led to many making calls on various communities around Benin River to come and identify the corpses.
As at the time of filing this report the cause of the death of the six unidentified male dead bodies is yet to be ascertained.
However, when our correspondent contacted the Commanding Officer, 90 Amphibious Battalion, Koko, Major Joshua Ajongo on the incident, he said efforts that had been put in place to help unravel the mystery behind the dead bodies.
