The remains of the kidnapped Obi of Ubulu-Uku, Agbogidi Akaeze Ofulue of Aniocha South local government area (LGA) of Delta State, has been reportedly found dead in Umunede.

This was confirmed by the Delta State police Public Relations Officer, DSP Celestina Kalu, who promised to issue a statement on Friday.

At the time of filing this report, the details surrounding the discovery of the decomposed body of the monarch were sketchy.

Obi of Ubulu-Uku, Agbogidi Akaeze Ofulue was kidnapped few weeks ago between Igbodo and Obior when his car was intercepted by suspected herdsmen.

The kidnappers, numbering over six, captured the king and his driver and led them into the bush, and later demanded N100 million as ransom for his release.

Neither of the decomposed bodies have been formally identified, though family sources have confirmed that the bodies are those of the monarch and his driver.
