By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The death of Mr. Iyoha Osobase Omon, a Lawyer in Edo State, who was allegedly murdered some days ago, has been confirmed by the Edon State Police Command,  after his alleged killers were reported to have admitted to the crime and led police operatives to the makeshift grave where the deceased was buried.

According to the Public Relations Officer of the command, Dsp Chidi Nwabuzor, via a signed statement, Osobase’s corpse was exhumed on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, by pathologists from the Central Hospital Benin City and subsequently transferred to the hospital’s morgue for post-mortem.
