Suspected ritualists abandon lady’s body on Delta highway
The headless remains of a yet-to-be identified lady has been abandoned by suspected ritualists on the Delta Steel Company (DSC) highway in Delta state.
The gory sight of the headless body has made the residents of the community, Ebrumede in Uvwie Local Government Area of the state on Monday to express shock.
According to report, the headless and naked female body was spotted in the middle of the highway near the popular Vita Foam office, along the ever-busy DSC Expressway.
The spot where the body lies in the middle of the road is about five poles across, away from the Ebrumede Divisional Police Station.
Sources disclosed that the bodyi was likely dumped on the highway at midnight as a commercial motorcyclist said the body was not there before midnight last Sunday.
Recall that a madman, suspected to be a ritualist, was burnt to death by an angry mob for being in possession of a human skull and mobile phones under the Otokutu Bridge along the DSC expressway in December 2019.
State Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Muhammed Inuwa as well as the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Onome Onovwakpoyeya, could not be reached for reactions as of the time of filing the report.
However, users of the DSC expressway have appealed to the appropriate authorities to quickly evacuate the body before it constitutes a health hazard.
