Three young men have reportedly been killed on Monday morning by yet-to-be identified people in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
The incident happened around Office Bus Stop, after World Oil petrol station on new Ibadan/Oyo Expressway in Akinyele Local Government area of the state.
According to The Punch, the incident occurred early hours on Monday. It was further revealed that one of the victim was beheaded while vital parts were also removed from the remaining two bodies.
A commercial driver, Abdulfatai AbdulGaniyu who spoke to The Punch said,
“I saw the lifeless body of these people in the morning when I was carrying passengers from Ojoo to Toose today. The case looks like ritual because one of them was beheaded.”
Another source who spoke to The Punch said,
“Passengers who are looking for cheap prices, cheap buses are normally staying at that bus stop to board their vehicles to either Oyo, Ogbomoso, Ilorin and even Jebba.
“They cannot afford the fare at the terminal, that’s why they stay there. But this particular case is quite different because some of their vital organs were removed.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, is yet to give an official statement on the incident.
