The Nigerian Police has discovered the body of the slain staff of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Engr. Emeka Chiaghana, in a shallow grave where he was buried.

Chiaghana was abducted on October 25, 2019, at his house in Nibo, Awka South local government area of the state by unknown gunmen.

He had remained missing until his body was found in a shallow grave in Mbaukwu, Awka North local government area of the state.

The police had in December last year arrested three persons in connection with the engineer’s abduction. One of the suspects reportedly led the police to where the body of the deceased was dumped in the shallow grave.
