Four corpses allegedly belonging to commercial motorcyclists were found in an uncompleted building near the El-Kabir Housing Estate in Keffi, Nasarawa State.
The ritualists dumped the bodies of the motorcyclists in the uncompleted building for more than seven days. Residents perceived a strange odour and raised the alarm, which prompted the policemen to came to the scene, and take the corpses away.
According to the Police, the eyes and private parts of the discovered corpses were reportedly missing.
A resident said, “We perceived an odour and decided to move close to where it emanated from. When we got there, we couldn’t believe what we saw. We quickly raised the alarm. This was how the police and members of the public got to know that some Okada riders had been murdered and their corpses left there.”
According to a Punch report, the motorcyclists were stopped by the suspected ritualists , who pretended to be labourers, after which they asked the riders to take them to somewhere along Keffi /Nasarawa Road.
Some residents of the area, disclosed that they saw some people standing along the road holding shovels, cutlasses and measuring tapes. Subsequently, they heard gunshots but could not go near the scene because they were unarmed.
