January 28, 2014 – Nigerian Police DSP, Anthony Jeaga Beheaded In Agbor Delta State

Agbor community residents in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State woke up on Sunday morning to discover the headless body of a man later identified as Anthony Jeaga, the divisional traffic officer (DTO) in-charge of Agbor Police Division.

The bizarre discovery sent shivers down the spines of residents, who now move with caution especially at wee hours and in isolated areas.

The deceased, a deputy superintendent of police (DSP) was allegedly murdered by gunmen along the Benin-Asaba Expressway where his lifeless body was found. The remains have been deposited at the mortuary of the General Hospital, Agbor, possibly for autopsy.

DSP Jeaga, Daily Sun gathered, was transferred from the state police headquarters, Asaba to Agbor division. He hailed from Otuo in Owan East Local Government Area of Edo State.

Sources said the assailants escaped with the victim’s silver Toyota Camry car with registration number AYB 88AA.

Acting spokesman of the state police command, DSP Charles Muka, who confirmed the incident, said the murder of the traffic officer remained a mystery. “We don’t know what happened. His body was dumped along the express road with a deep cut on his neck.”

Our correspondent, however, gathered from a police source that one suspect had been arrested in connection with the murder, while investigations had been intensified.

According to the source, the suspect had uttered unwarranted comments about the victim before his death.

It was also gathered that an unknown female corpse was recovered by the police at Umunede in Ika North-East Local Government Area of the state. The corpse, according to the source, was not mutilated.
