Residents in a hamlet in Oyo town discovered suspected ritualists' activities in an unfinished building in the region.
After smelling a terrible odour, residents living near the building, which is located along the Oyo-Ilora Road in the Oyo West Local Government Area of Oyo State, began combing the bushes.
They were believed to have discovered decomposing human parts in the unfinished structure and reported it to the Oyo West Police Station.
The source informed newsmen, “Those living close to the site said they used to see a man riding a motorcycle to the place. They said the man used to work with a shovel in the building; they thought he was clearing debris but did not know he was carrying out criminal activities there. Somebody later said that he knew the father of the motorcycle rider. The police came, saw those things and took them away. They also arrested some suspects.”
Another resident, who requested anonymity, told our correspondent that human bones and a child's school uniform had been discovered at the scene, raising fears that the act may have been ongoing for some time.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
