Abuja - The remains of a middle-aged woman along the Benin-Agbor Expressway have caused a stir after it was discovered that she had been calling for assistance from the same spot for five days.
According to a PUNCH report, the deceased was first sighted at Lucky junction on February 2, where she laid helplessly and periodically called for help after what seemed to have been a rape attack.
It has been reported that the woman was seen bleeding profusely from her private parts but was not helped by neither passersby, nor traders in the nearby market.

Traders subsequently avoided the spot where the woman had died after a foul stench began radiating from her decomposing corpse.
The corpse is said to have been removed by a relative of the deceased.
Joseph Ediogiawerie, Public Relations Officer at the Police, has said that no official report has been made to officials. He had, however, heard of the corpse and subsequently written to council authorities on the matter.
