The Deputy Superintendent of Police, Godwin Oshiogbuwe, who was abducted on Wednesday by unknown gunmen at Ubiaja, Esan South East Local Government Area has been found dead.
It was learnt that his body was found in a forest on Ubiaja-Ewohimi-Agbor road by a police tactical team who were in pursuit of the kidnappers.
According to Sahara Reporters, the deceased was killed after the kidnappers discovered he was a policeman through his police identification card and pictures on his mobile phone.
Confirming his death, Edo Police spokesman, DSP Chidi Nwabuzor, said that “a search party discovered the body of the slain policeman at Emu-Oken bush.”
The late DSP Oshiogbuwe who hails from Auchi in Edo State served in Abuja before his death.
The recovered body has since been deposited in the mortuary for autopsy.
