About 70 headless, decomposing bodies discovered in Abia cattle market


About 70 decomposed human bodies, including 20 headless ones and countless human skeletons, were discovered around Lokpanta Cattle Market in Umunneochi local government area of Abia State.

The state governor, Dr Alex Otti, disclosed this late Sunday night during a monthly media chat for October tagged; ‘Governor Alex Otti Speaks to Abians’, at the Government House, Umuahia, the state capital.


He said security agencies made the discoveries during search operations both within and around the market area following incessant reports of security breaches.

“Kidnapping, armed robbery, prostitution, narcotics trade and other social vices around the market necessitated the raid as some brothels were recently brought down,” the governor said.

He said as part of moves to change the narrative, his administration has resolved to transform the market to a daily general one with different sections, including that of livestock


Otti announced that henceforth, the market would operate from 6am to 6pm as “we have began fencing it all in our efforts to ensure adequate security both within and outside.”
