It was gathered that two of the corpses were exhumed on Sunday, while six were exhumed on Monday.

One of the victims reportedly killed and burnt was identified as Itoje Dennis from Otor-Iyede in Isoko North Local Government Area of the state.

President-General of the community, Cassidy Akpedafe, and the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Inuwa, had Sunday disagreed on the reported killings with the police boss claiming that some individuals were using the reports to cause apprehension in the state.

The CP, while questioning the authenticity of the claims that eight persons were killed by the herdsmen with the aide of persons dressed in military uniforms, said: “If there are any (deaths), why are they hiding such corpses from the police?”
