Land dispute between two families in Imo State has taken another turn after two corpses were dug out just three weeks after they were buried.
On Tuesday, an age-long land dispute between two families took another turn as one of the warring parties dug out the corpses of two members of the rival family, in Isiozi Umuaka, Imo State.
According to reports, the corpses were those of a mother and her daughter-in-Law who died 6 and 4 years ago respectively, but couldn’t be buried due to the lingering land dispute.
However, three weeks ago, they were buried on the land under dispute, but the other family said the case is still in court, hence proceeded to dig them out and take their caskets to the market square.
They died 6 and 4 years ago respectively, but as a result of the land dispute the family couldn’t hold an internment for them earlier, they however decided to bury them in the family land.
According to a court order, they were asked not to proceed with the burial since the case is still awaiting court judgement.
