Jimoh Adebayo, the former Chairman of the Nigeria Automobile Technicians Association (NATA), Kogi State Chapter, has been found dead.
On Sunday, September 11, his body was discovered beneath a newly constructed flyover bridge in Lokoja, the state capital.
Adebayo was presumed to have died four days ago under the flyover bridge, but his body was discovered yesterday.
A member of NATA who requested anonymity stated that the cause of his death could not be determined due to some complicated issues.
“We cannot say this is the cause of the death of the former NATA Chairman now. He was a wealthy man years ago, we later learnt he sold out everything he had in life. People said he went insane. We found his dead body in the early hours of today here,” said the member.
The body was later taken to Lokoja’s Felele Cemetery.
SP William Ayah, a spokesman for the Kogi State Police Command, confirmed the development, saying that the command was aware of it.
He went on to say that the Police Warden assigned to the Ganaja Flyover Bridge discovered the body after returning to work on Sunday and reported it.
Aya went on to say that the Command was preparing to deposit the corpse at the Mortuary when some people claiming to be his family members picked it up.
He stated that the corpse was returned to the family after an undertaking by one of the family members.
