A yet to be identified young man has been found dead on the street in Lagos state, after he was inflicted with several machete cuts. It is also believed that he was left to bleed to death.
Our reporters learnt that the lifeless body was found near a notorious black spot at Aboye Street in Ejigbo, Lagos. This spot is well known for cultism and other criminal activities.
Although the identity of the victim is not yet known, some of the residents believe that he must have been killed at a different location, before being brought down to that area.
According to the residents, they woke up in the morning to find the lifeless body which was still bleeding from the many machete cuts that severed its body. They also made it known that they ran a check and discovered that his face was not familiar in the area.
Based on this, they drew up the conclusion that he might have been killed before being dumped there. When the residents filed a report to the police at Ejigbo Division, the men of the police force went there, retrieved the body, and deposited at the mortuary for autopsy report.
When P.M Express correspondent visited Ejigbo Police Station, Lagos, the DPO was not on seat to make a comment on the matter. However, a police source has backed the incident and made it known that the police have long begun investigation into the matter. The source further stated that the police were working on two premises which involved cult activity and being a victim of armed robbery attack.
It was gathered that so far, nobody has come forward to claim the corpse. This simply implies that after some weeks in the mortuary, the corpse might be taken along with the others for mass burial, and his relations may not have access to it again. The police said that no arrest has been made yet in connection with the death.
