A combined team of security agents and local vigilantes in Delta State, South-South Nigeria have recovered the decomposing corpses of some police officers allegedly killed by herdsmen.

The corpses were discovered during a search and rescue operation of three missing police officers in Ohoror community, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday.

DDM gathered that the officers were declared missing on January 24, 2024, in Ohoror community after responding to a distress call from one Moses Progress.

The distress call followed an alleged attack by herders while Progress was performing a sacrifice to the gods of the river under a bridge.

Following their disappearance and the distress call, a combined team of security agents and vigilantes went in search of the officers in a nearby forest on Sunday.

According to security sources on Monday, the team discovered and located the operational huts of the killer herders.

Unfortunately, they had killed the three policemen and carted away their rifles and ammunition.

Upon intense search, the team discovered three more decomposing corpses bringing the number of bodies found in the Agadama bush to six.

Our source says the recovered corpses have been deposited at the morgue of Mariere Central Hospital in Ughelli.

The public relations unit of the Nigeria Police in Delta State is yet to officially react to the development.
