The Ogun State Police Command is trying to unmask the killers of a commercial motorcyclist, Sunday Ibo, who was allegedly beheaded on Wednesday in the Odogbolu area of the state.
The assailants went away with the victim’s head and allegedly removed his heart and kidney. They dumped the corpse in a bush.
The victim was said to have gone out for his business routine on the day, but did not return home.
A search party was said to have been set up by his fellow kinsmen from Benue State, and the decapitated body was later found in the bush.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the Odogbolu divisional police headquarters had removed the corpse from the bush, while investigations had commenced.
He said, “The story about an okada rider who was beheaded in Odogbolu is true. We have commenced investigations into the gruesome murder. The perpetrators might have beheaded him in order to divert attention; we are going to work on many clues and ensure we unravel those behind the heinous act. I want to assure residents of the state that we will get Sunday Ibo’s killers.”
