Aflao, July 13, GNA - The body of a six-year-old boy has been found buried in an uncompleted building at Aflao, three days after he failed to return from school.

Jesse Henyo, a Primary 2 pupil of Christ the King Basic School at Avakome, a suburb of Aflao, was believed to have been sacked from school on Thursday July 9, for owing school fees.

GNA learnt that the Police at Aflao have interrogated some members of the dead boy's family and school authorities but no arrest has been made.

The Police claimed all parts of the body were intact but suspected foul play.

Mrs. Lena Henyo, the deceased's mother, told GNA that the family organized a search party to look for Henyo, when he did not return home from school and reported the matter to the Police.

She said the search team found the body of the boy in a seating position with the school uniform and footwear on him after digging a spot at an uncompleted building near the school.

Henyo's body had been deposited at the morgue at the Ketu District Hospital at Aflao pending autopsy.

Before the body was found, an angry mob went to the residence of the school authorities, adjacent the school and destroyed furniture and house fittings, claiming they (school authorities) were hiding the deceased.
