Fear gripped residents of Oke-Baale community in Osogbo, Osun State, over the murder of a yet-to-be man along Ibokun road, Osogbo.
The residents also decried the presence of suspected ritualists around the scene of the incident; Nawarudeen Grammar School, Oke-Baale in Osogbo.
It was gathered that the deceased who was riding a motorcycle was said to have been waylaid, attacked and murdered in cold blood on Monday night.
The victim’s body was dismembered and his motorcycle stolen.
Some residents of the area who spoke under anonymity said the attackers might have laid siege in the area and monitored people’s movement before launching their attacks on the man who was riding home after the day’s work.
The motorcyclist’s head, fists, heart and flesh of his thigh were removed and taken away.
“We woke up to discover his dismembered lifeless body in our area. We suspect that he was attacked on Monday night when it was raining because the man was already riding his motorcycle home. There were wraps of fufu that he had bought apparently for members of his family.
“It was a disgusting and shocking sight as his head was chopped off, his heart was removed, his fists were also cut off while his flesh on his right thigh was sliced out.
“We are really afraid and we want the government to provide security for us. The people who committed this ungodly act might have been prowling around the town before striking and other communities should be alert because their syndicate might still be around,” a resident who craved anonymity narrated.
Meanwhile, a team of policemen from Oke-Baale Division visited the area on Tuesday evening and evacuated the corpse.
