The decomposing corpse suspected to be his was found in a bush in Umunede, along the Benin/Asaba Expressway, one month after he was abducted, Punch reports.

Punch reports that SP Mbalu was abducted at about 4 pm on March 5, 2017, after spending the weekend with his family in Agbor.

The deceased was reportedly kept incommunicado by his abductors until the Police Command received the news of his death on Friday, March 17, 2017.

However, the state commissioner of police, CP Zannah Ibrahim, discredited the news of the officer's death, claiming that the information lacked credibility.

CP Ibrahim added, “It’s not true. We are still investigating his abduction. If somebody dies, are we going to hide it? All these stories are hear-say.”

Speaking on conditions of anonymity, a reliable source revealed that the decomposing corpse was found on Friday morning and the command has been gloomy over the discovery.

According to the source, some of the suspects, including a Fulani Herdsman is currently in police custody.
