IG rejects planned mass burial for slain policemen in Bayelsa

By Samuel Oyadongha

Yenagoa — The burial of the 12 policemen who were killed, penultimate Friday, in the creek of Bayelsa State by ex-militants, may be delayed as the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, has ordered full-scale investigation and DNA tests to ascertain the identities of the deceased.

The decomposed corpses of the slain policemen were recovered last Tuesday and deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Yenagoa, by the police.

Families of the deceased policemen, who besieged the FMC to identify and collect the remains of their loved ones, were not allowed in, as the decomposed remains were bagged and deposited at the mortuary under tight security.
