Tension is mounting as residents of Oke Oniyo street, Ajilosun, Ado Ekiti in Ekiti state are battling to unravel sudden disappearance of some body parts of a teenage boy who died in the area.
It was gathered that the boy known as Goodluck sustained a mild injury in the leg while playing football and later fell sick but died few days after due to what was suspected to be infection or complications from the injury.
It was gathered that body of the boy was laid in a room over night in preparation for his burial.
It was however shocking as his mother and other sympathizers found his body already mutilated when they returned the next morning.
His both eyes were removed while his tongue was cut off as well as some parts of his mouth were also removed.
Narrating the incident, some residents said the corpse was brought by the family at evening.
They wondered how such an evil act could have occurred without the knowledge of the family members who brought him.
It was also learnt that only the boy was left in the room as the mother was advised not to sleep with the corpse.
According to the residents, the boy’s part must have been removed for ritual purposes by those close to the family or have access to the room where the boy was kept.
It was also gathered that the police have been invited to investigate the matter.
