Andy Dateer, the state commandant of the NSCDC said: “It was a very sad day for the command.”
According to him, his men on a routine patrol caught two men in possession of a corpse of a girl of about two years old in a sack. He said his men were attracted to the scene following a quarrel between them and a man who would have CONVEYED them to the scene in his car.
“As people started gathering, the owner of the car zoomed off and my men arrested the two suspects,” he said.
“If they had not been SAVED by his men the public would have lynched them and the society would not be able to know the mystery behind their act,” he said.
Chibuike Anubuife , one of the suspect said he saw the other man for the first time and he asked him to help him bury the dead girl, and said that he was still discussing the logistics for the BURIAL of the girl before the men of the NSCDC arrested them. while the other suspect, Jonathan Nwogu said a man approached him to help him bury the girl.
