A yet-to-be-identified man has been found dead inside his Toyota 4-Runner SUV in Benin City, Edo State capital

The deceased was found seating behind the steering wheel, with the pockets of his trousers ransacked.

The incident may have occurred at night and the man did not get help.

Police investigators at the Homicide Section, Criminal Investigation Department of the State Police Command believe the deceased was most likely a victim of armed robbers who attacked and robbed him.

As at the time of filing this report, the investigators are still finding a possible means of identifying the deceased and also contact his family, as his phone was said to be missing.

The State Police Spokesman, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, however, said that the only available clue was a hotel receipt with the name Dr. Eromon David.

He said: “The corpse was found inside a dark blue Toyota 4Runner with registration number Lagos FKJ-39 FB at Ikpokpan Junction, G.R.A, Benin City, this [Thursday] morning.

“When officers searched the vehicle, they discovered that the phone of the deceased and other valuables were missing, because the vehicle was ransacked. Even the body of the dead man was ransacked to the extent that his pockets were turned inside out meaning that they tampered with the trousers pockets.

“Three copies of lodging receipts by the name by the University of Benin, when we checked the name on the receipts we saw Dr. Eromon David. Investigation is ongoing.”

Nwabuzor added that investigators would find out the cause of death and other issues relating to the incident.
