Wicked Gangsters Strangle,Cut off woman’s private part in Lagos

February 3, 2015 2:07 pm
A woman has been strangled to death by yet-to-be identified persons, who also cut off her private parts.

Her corpse was abandoned on Oniyanrin Street in the Mile 12, Ketu area of Lagos State.

Metro learnt that people living in the area discovered that there was
no gunshot wound or stab injury on the body, except that she was dead
and her body part cut off.

The corpse was laid in front of a shop and was covered with clothes.

A resident, Mr. Abayomi Odegbami, told our correspondent on Monday that
the unidentified woman was a regular face in the community, and usually
slept in one of the shops.

He added that she was last seen by residents on Saturday, adding that residents suspected that she
was killed in the evening.

He said,

“Nobody knows exactly what happened to her.“We just discovered that they
strangled her and cut off her private parts. We suspect that what they
were really interested in was her private parts.
“This incident
happened on Saturday and the corpse is already decomposing. We have been
calling the emergency numbers for some time now, and they have not come
around.“Our fear is that the corpse could burst and spread disease in
the area.”

He added that such incidents had become a common sight in the area, adding that a similar one was recorded last year.

“I believe it has a ritual undertone and may not be unconnected with the
coming elections because a similar thing happened last year and it was a
man. A part of his body was also removed while his corpse was
abandoned,” he said.

After the matter was reported to policemen at the Ketu division, our
correspondent learnt that emergency officials later arrived around 4pm
on Monday to pick up the corpse.

A source in the area said the officials insisted on collecting money before they could evacuate the corpse from the scene.

He said,

“They said they also heard about it on Saturday.“They said we should pay
them before they remove the body. Where do we get the money from?”

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Kenneth Nwosu, confirmed the incident.

He, however, said it was a case of sudden and unnatural death.

He added that the victim’s private parts were not cut off as speculated by residents of the area.

He said, “It’s a case of sudden and unnatural death. No part of her body was cut off.”
