A female officer of Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Josephine Onche, who went missing in 2019 has been found in a shallow grave in Obi LGA of Benue State.
The deceased was declared missing by her family in Otukpo in December 2019, few days to her wedding. She was reported to have gone to the market to purchase things for the ceremony when she went missing.
Vanguard reports that the daughter of the former Mayor of Otukpo, Inalegwu Onche, was found buried allegedly for ritual purposes by her proposed husband.
According to the source, “An okada man who knew what happened to late Cynthia Onche went to her family members and gave them the news.
He led them to arrest her proposed Igbo husband who led the police to Ogun State where they arrested a native doctor, a Yoruba man, who performed the ritual at Obi Local Government Area before he later relocated to the South West.
Both the proposed husband and the native doctor have confessed to committing the crime and are presently in police custody in Otukpo.”
