This comes barely two weeks after the body of a  kidnapped business woman was dumped by her abductors in Otukpo.

The report says the decaying body of the the vicar General of the Otukpo Diocese was discovered by residents of the area, behind the local government education secretariat and has been evacuated by the police for forensic confirmation.

This happened after the abductors refused to release the man of God even after a N2 million ransom was paid.

Also, efforts by the State Government, including a N5 million reward for anyone with information on the clerics whereabouts, yielded no results.

Attempts to reach the Benue Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Moses Yamu proved abortive as at press time.
