Confusion rented the air on Monday at Ifedolapo community in Ilorin when a corpse was found under Osere bridge in the area.
Residents raised unanswered questions as to the cause of death.
Police spokesman in Kwara, SP Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the development in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
After supervising the evacuation processes, the Divisional Police Officer of ‘B’ Division, Surulere, Ilorin, CSP Akinwale Olaoye, said Friday’s heavy downpour would be the most likely cause.
Olaoye added that investigation would continue to unravel the identity of the corpse. (NAN)
