Community scandalised as tombraiders pour acid to plunder millionaire’s casket

Theft, like most vocations, has its pros and cons. It has its random specialties; a burglar robs day and night, often while the homeowner is absent or sleeping. Enter the body-snatcher; he steals in the dark to plunder the peace of the dead, rifling through the grave for obscene treasures. Tormentor of decaying corpses, the grave-robber rifles through tombs and ossuaries.

He supplies a shady clientele with that which the grimreaper supplies the undertaker. Thus when grave-robbers invaded Agbarha-Otor, in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, the community was cast in disarray.

The marauders attempted to break into the tomb of an illustrious son of the soil and late business mogul, Olorogun Michael Ibru.

Sources within the community disclosed that the hoodlums fled after pouring acid on the tomb which is located behind the Ibru Clinic in a failed attempt to steal the casket containing the remains of the late Urhobo icon.

Confirming the incident to a newspaper on Friday evening, President-General of the community and retired university don, Prof. Sam Ibodje, said, the matter has been reported at the Ughelli ‘B’ Division police station.

The community has also restricted movement in the community from 12a.m till dawn as a result of the incident, which was discovered in the early hours of Friday.

Agbarha-Otor is the country home of the Ibrus and plays host to the headquarters of 222 battalion of the Nigeria Army as well as the Michael and Cecilia Ibru University.
