”This prompted our village headman to order us to search for him and yesterday we found him dead in Lufupa River with only a head and backbone but the rest of some body parts were already eaten by crocodiles,” said Banda Separate information indicates that the deceased wanted to cross the river but because of his condition, he got drowned in the same.

Police publicist for the district sergeant Ignatius Esau who confirmed the misfortune advised people to take good care of mentally ill people to avoid the recurrence of such incidences.
