About 40 dead bodies were discovered yesterday floating in the Ezu river at Amansea in Awka, Anambra State, with residents of the community wondering what could be the cause of their death.
The corpses are yet to be identified and the police have assured the public that investigations are ongoing to unravel the mystery behind the dead bodies.
Reports say the governor of the state, Peter Obi, has cut short his working trip abroad to return to the state to enable him visit the scene.
