The Police in Rivers State has uncovered a suck-away pit filled with about twenty corpses along Jesus Avenue, Umuebule One in Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The suspected killer of the victims and owner of premises where the corpses were discovered is said to be a trader who sells along Ogbunabali Road in Port Harcourt the capital of Rivers State.
The discovery was made when a trader who was leaving his base in Aba in Abia State to meet with the suspect, left the address and phone number of the suspect with his wife upon departure to collect the sum of N500,000 being cost of goods supplied to the suspect on credit. The suspect had invited the victim for the collection of the outstanding money being cost of supplied wares.
After waiting for 48 hours without seeing or hearing from her husband, the wife of the victim was said to have reported to the Police who swung into action.
On interrogation the suspect took the Police to his house where five fresh corpses were recovered from a 20ft suck-away pit exclusively dug for dumping of corpses of victims.
The pit said to have been dug in 2016 is said to contain about 15 more corpses yet to be recovered.
The wife of the suspect has since abandoned her four children and ran away while two grown- up children of the suspect have also taken to their heels leaving behind two little children of the suspect who were said to be demonstrating to onlookers how their father strangles his victims before them.
They said their father warned them never to tell anyone of what goes on in the house, warning that if they squealed, they would get the same treatment. The crime scene is said to be attracting myriad number of people including the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State.
