Who Did This? Headless Body Causes Panic In Edo (Photo)

There was panic among residents of Auchi community in Etsako West area of Edo State, following the sad and shocking discovering of the headless corpse of a man on Benin-Okenne-Lokoja expressway.

It was gathered that the body of the victim identified as Clement was found in front of Campus Two of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi.

The late Clement was likely a commercial motorcyclist as his severed head was sighted by the roadside, a little distance from a motorcycle.

What are the circumstances surrounding the victim’s death?

Sources gave conflicting accounts on the cause of his death. While some residents claimed that the deceased was allegedly murdered by suspected ritualists, others said that he might have been crushed to death by a heavy-duty truck on Sunday.

But the Unit Commander of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Moses Bature, who confirmed the incident, said that it was a suspected case of a fatal accident involving a hit-and-run driver.

Mr. Bature also said that the corpse had been deposited at a mortuary.

He said, “It is hit-and-run. We did not see the driver. We only carried the body to a mortuary.”
