The discovery of the lifeless body of a two-year-old male child has left residents of Abraka community, Delta State, looking for answers.

The corpse was discovered on Saturday by an electricity transformer along Umono Road, Abraka, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state after his parents were reported to have raised the alarm that their son was missing.

Father of the deceased, Johnson Oghenevo, who spoke to journalists in the area, alleged that his son was taken away by unknown persons while the infant was playing outside their apartment, Friday, adding that efforts towards locating his whereabouts proved abortive.
