According to a witness, who did not want his name mentioned for security reasons, the corpse was dumped in a stream between Sabon Gari in Tudunwa and Hwoshel.

Residents of the area said the deceased may have been killed by ritualists. The corpse was eventually taken away by officials of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and handed over to the A Division of the Nigeria Police in Jos. Apart from the ethno-religious crises that have led to the killing of hundreds of people in Plateau, other crime rates have also spiraled in the stat including kidnapping and murder.
