An unidentified corpse of a young man has been found in a drainage in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
The corpse was found early Monday morning by residents at Nyok Esu street behind Nigerian Navy Barracks, IBB Way, Big Qua, Calabar Municipality.
An eye witness who spoke with our reporter at the scene said “the boy was killed last night by unknown mob.”
CrossRiverWatch also gathered from residents that the man pleaded with the mob to rather kill him with matchet and not burn him; as his killers had earlier wanted to set him ablaze.
It is still not clear what must have led to the act.
As at the time of filing this report, efforts made to hear from the Police were unsuccessful but the corpse still lies in the drainage.
