Maxwell’s corpse was discovered floating on Tuesday in the sand-dredging muddy waters area of Amekpa.

“The friends came to tell the parents. Efforts were made to find the corpse. Yesterday morning (Tuesday) the corpse floated. There was confusion, as sacrifices were ordered to be made before he can be buried near the site.

“This boy is supposed to be writing his exam in Uniport, but he came back some time now. He’s always moving with those Trouser-sagging boys with dreadlocks.

“He has caused severe pain to his parents, I was with the mother, and the father has remained inconsolable. What he and friends were finding in the dirty waters still remains unknown,” she added.
