Philip disclosed that the attention of other residents of the community was drawn to the floating dead body by some women working close to the stream.

Philip said, “We are still in shock over the discovery of a corpse in our Alama community today, Monday. It was some women splitting stones in the area near the satellite market that raised the alarm when they first saw the corpse in the morning. Behold, it was a man’s dead body floating in the stream. We can’t tell what happened or how the dead body got there.

“I’m not aware. It is not every incident that gets to my office. If such an incident actually happened, I’m sure the DPO in charge of the area might have commenced an investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident. It is after they are done with their investigation that they can inform us,” the PPRO stated
