Four dead bodies have been found in an over flooded river in Plateau's Bokkos Local Government Area.

The bodies were picked at different locations in the river stretching between Butura Kampani and Butura Gida in less than a week.

Last week Friday, one unidentified body was reportedly found at a place called Tash in Butura Gida village.

Two women were yesterday found near the same location at a place called Walshak flooding on the water.

They were later identified to be market women from Monguna village, South West of Bokkos town.

It was however not clear what might have happened to them.

They were however suspected to have drowned in the river which over flooded its banks following Thursday's prolonged rains.

The three were discovered in the cause of searching for a teenage labourer's body in the river.

He had drowned on Thursday near Butura Vet after allegedly insisting on crossing the river which was filled to the brim.

His body was however found near Government Girls College, Bokkos after days of search.

Authorities have not issued any statements on the incidents and efforts to reach them proved abortive as at the time of publishing this report.
