At press time no one has been able to identify the body and what happened to the deceased, no familly has also identified itself with the corpse.

It is expected that the Bamenda City Council will rescue the situation by taking away the mortal remains of this young man for burial.

It's been over 5years since the armed armed conflict started in the Northwest and Southwest regions. The insecurity in both regions has caused people to leave their homes, seeking refuge in other towns where they consider safe. 

In recent times heavy gunshots could still be heard in different parts of town in the Northwest region and sometimes local explosives will go off. This is not the first time corpses have been abandoned on the streets.
