FCT Police launch investigation into corpse found by roadside

The Federal Capital Territory Police Command says it has launched investigations into the death of a yet-to-be-identified lady whose body was found after Mpape Junction in Abuja.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, SP Josephine Adeh, told our correspondent on Friday that the Mabushi Divisional Headquarters of the command had evacuated the body, adding that investigations were ongoing to identify the lady.

“Mabushi Division took the body to the hospital yesterday. We have yet to identify who she is. We are still investigating, “she said.

An X user who tweets as #Arike_Jane posted photos of the unidentified lady on Thursday, noting that no form of identification was found on the corpse to get through to her family and relatives.

“This young girl was found dead this morning, after Mpape junction around Abuja top bridge that connects Berger and AYA. They couldn’t find any useful information about her or any I.D. to get through to her family and relatives,” she wrote.

Responding to the tweet, some users had alleged the possibility that she was a ‘one chance’ victim, noting the removal of all forms of identification from her.

David Offor, an X user, expressed sadness over the death, saying, “It is really sad. Everyone should be careful of how they move at night in Abuja, If you must go out in the night, board a cab from a park, take a drop, or book any of the online logistics. One chance is still real. May she find peace.”
