The body of a kidnapped revenue worker in Benue State, Joseph Myaan, has been discovered in a shallow grave.

Myaan was abducted over one month ago and efforts to locate his whereabouts were unsuccessful.

His corpse, according to sources, was discovered in a shallow grave in the Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of Benue State.

The PUNCH gathered that the body was found on Wednesday in Akpera, a suburb of Tongov community in Katsina-Ala.

A top politician from the area and security agents were said to have led a search party to the place where his body was exhumed.

“The remains of Myaan have been deposited in the Katsina-Ala General Hospital morgue,” said the source.

The Chairman of Kastina-Ala LGA, Alfred Atera, confirmed the incident, adding that the deceased was a staff member of the council.

The Benue state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Catherine Anene, said the command had yet to receive any report on the matter.
