The remains of an unidentified young man is laying along the Murtala Mohammed Highway by Bishop Moyna avenue junction Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
As at press time, the cause of the death was not known, it was also not clear if the deceased was insane or not as his outward appearance looks like someone that was mentally deranged.
Residents who spoke to CrossRiverWatch say the incident must have happened during the early hours of Wednesday since the body was not there on Tuesday night.
Mr. Asuquo Ekpe, a trader along the street said, “Well, last night when I closed from work and I was going home this was not here (pointing to the lifeless body), and I closed around 10pm. But I’m surprised that this morning, it is here. Maybe it happened early hours of this morning.”
However, residents said they have appealed to relevant authorities to pick up the body to avoid creating a health crisis.
At the time of filing this report, the corpse was still there.
