The Abia State Governor Dr Alex Otti says the government has discovered over 50 decomposed dead bodies, over 20 headless bodies and countless human skeletons all around Lokpanta Cattle Market area of Umunneochi LGA, along the Enugu-Umuahia-Aba Port Harcourt Expressway.
The Governor disclosed this during his monthly media chat tagged “Governor Alex Otti Speaks to Abians”, held in Government House, Umuahia on Sunday night.
He assured that his government is committed to tackling the issues of insecurity headlong without minding whose ox is gored.
Governor Otti said that prostitution, narcotics trade and other criminal vices around the Lokpanta Cattle Market necessitated the raid of the market as some brothels were recently brought down and there is now calm in Umunneochi.
The Governor, who insisted that the Lokpanta market would become a daily market that would open at 6am and closes at 6pm would now become a general market as sections would be allotted to the cattle dealers and other businesses too.
