The remains of a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Sapele, Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr Jubril Ikumetse, has been recovered from his home, at the Amukpe area of the town, two days after he was reported missing.

A neighbor who spoke to Oasis Magazine (OM) under conditions of anonymity said that Mr Ikumetse was last seen on Friday, adding “we thought he had travelled, not knowing he was inside his house, and has been dead for days now, It was when we began to hear foul smell from the direction of his house that we suspected he might be the one and we had no choice than to call the police and that was when we confirmed our fears.”
