Mr Adade, who was on road construction duties in the area,

said his instincts set in immediately and he rushed to scene.

It was then he identified the body, though badly decomposed

only in the face area, as that of his nephew.

He stated that the deceased had bruises on his forehead and

a wide cut on his mouth as well as his throat slit.

According to him, doctors confirmed his observation except

that the slash on his throat was attributed to decomposition.

Meanwhile, his motorbike was no where to be found, forcing

residents and police to suspect a robbery turned murder.

The body has since been deposited at the morgue

as police begin investigations.
