Residents of the community woke up to find the bodies of the men and alerted the police.

“Our men found three bodies in the bush along the road, but they were already decomposing, so we couldn’t identify them. We don’t know what caused their death, but it is obvious that they were not killed there. Their corpses were brought and dumped there. For now, we cannot identify who they are, because the bodies are already decomposing.” she said
