The remains of Fejiro Emoavworhe, a seven-year-old missing boy has been found floating at the bank of Ohovwe river in Ekiugbo, Ughelli North local government area of Delta.
Emoavworhe was declared missing on Sunday, October 4 by his parent. Narrating the incident, the father said;
“While we were still searching for Fejiro, my brother in-law left the compound in hurry and when he was called upon by the family the following morning, he said he was going to church and later came to meet my family at about 7.00pm.
“My wife’s younger brother told my family that he did not know anything about Fejiro’s disappearance but that he heard my neighbours saying that I used to beat my children and drive them out of home, that this time around I will find my child tired.”
He also added that when his brother -in-law was asked to direct them to the neighbours apartment, all the occupants, who are mainly suspected ‘Yahoo boys’ did not hesitate to escape through the back door.
All efforts made to reach the Delta State Commissioner of Police for comment proved abortive, however, a senior police officer from ‘A’ Division Ughelli confirmed the incident.
The remains of Fejiro Emoavworhe have been deposited at an undisclosed morgue in Ughelli as a team of doctors carries out the autopsy.
