Floating corpse:Police commence investigation
Fisayo Akinduro, Osogbo
The Osun State Police Command said it has commenced investigation on what caused the death of an unidentified man whose corpse was found floating on River Osun.
The Hope Metro gathered that the corpse of the yet to be identified man was found floating on the River Osun under the bridge on an unidentified Gbongan-Osogbo Road in Osogbo on Wednesday.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Folasade Odoro, said detectives from the command had commenced investigation to unravel the mystery behind the incident.
The corpse was reportedly recovered around 7pm by the police and officials of the Osun Ambulance Scheme.
It was gathered that the head of the male corpse was badly severed indicating the victim must have been dumped in the river.
It was not immediately clear how the corpse was discovered, but bystanders said some students discovered the floating body and alerted the people around.
Odoro said the command had not identified the victim, but gave an assurance that the mystery surrounding the incident would be resolved soon.
It will be recalled that earlier this year a corpse was found in the River Osun at Osunjela village.
The corpse was later buried at the river bank by some Osun adherents.
