Shina Abubakar, Osogbo

Anxiety grips residents and shop owners at Oke-Baale community of Osogbo, Osun State capital following the killing of a middle-aged woman in the community.

The headless body of the homeless woman was found behind a shopping complex directly opposite the Local Government Secretariat at Oke-Baale early hours on Tuesday.

A resident of the community, Ismail Adeoye said some hoodlums suspected to be ritual killers dragged the woman behind the shop early hours on Tuesday but residents are too scared to question them.

“One of the shop owners raised alarm in the morning when she discovered a headless body behind her shop.

“The body was without the arms, head and the two breasts and the matter was reported to the police”, he said.

However, shopowners abandoned their shops for fear of being arrested over the unfortunate incident by the security agency.

It was gathered that the victim had been homeless for some months and had been living beside the road in the area and begging for alms.

When contacted, Osun Police Command Spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola said the command has alerted the appropriate authority to take care of the headless and armless body.

She added police have commenced investigation into the incident.
