Oyo State Police Command, on Tuesday, evacuated the mutilated bodies of three young men, who were gruesomely murdered by yet-to-be-identified persons in Ibadan, the state capital.

The victims were allegedly killed on Monday morning around Office Bus Stop, after World Oil petrol station on the new Ibadan-Oyo Expressway in the Akinyele Local Government Area of the state.

One of the bodies was beheaded, while vital organs were harvested from the remaining two.

When contacted on phone on Tuesday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Adewale Osifeso, confirmed the evacuation, saying it was done in the public interest.

Osifeso said: “Yes, the corpses have been evacuated this morning (Tuesday). It was done in the public interest, and public safety and to prevent the spread of an epidemic. An investigation has already commenced and updates will be provided accordingly.”

Checks further revealed that an unpleasant odour had taken over the scene before the arrival of the police officers to evacuate the bodies.

A commercial driver, Abdulfatai AbdulGaniyu, said: “I saw the…bodies of these people in the morning when I was carrying passengers from Ojoo to Toose. The case looks like ritual killings because one of them was beheaded.”

Another source, who did not want his name in print, said: “Passengers who are looking for cheap prices, cheap buses are normally staying at that bus stop to board vehicles to either Oyo, Ogbomoso, Ilorin and even Jebba. They cannot afford the fare at the Terminal, and that’s why they stay there.”
