Police officers exhumed a body of a middle aged man who was buried in a shallow grave at the banks of Tana River.
According to reliable reports, the body was initially recovered by a young boy who was herding his goats that prompted him to alert his people.
The body discovered is believed to be of a middle aged man, but the body was moved to Garissa referral hospital morgue where forensic examinations will be carried out to determine his identity.
Tana North Sub county police boss urged the residents who have previously lost their kin to come out and identify the body as this was not the first one to be recovered from the same region.

Local elders have urged the Government to clear all the bushes along the river banks as they facilitate such crimes with the victims of torture and murder being shipped easily and dumped there.
"We have insecurity problems in this village. This is not the first time we are seeing our people dumped into the river or laid in shallow graves. We urge the Government to do thorough investigations and unmask those killing our people." The elder stated.
May he rest in peace.
