The dismembered remains of a yet-to-be-identified lady have been found in the Kubwa area of the Federal Capital Territory, The Punch reports.
The corpse was reportedly found by a river in the community on Monday. According to residents, the stench from the corpse drew attention to it.
He said, “This morning (Monday), we started perceiving foul odour near the river. When we got there, we found two bags. The bags had bloodstains.
“When we checked, we saw human parts cut into pieces. There was also a dead animal alongside the corpse. They must have dumped the corpse there and we are suspecting ritualists. This is because the head was not there and the corpse was that of a lady.”
Another resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the body might have been dropped by the riverside by suspected ritual killers overnight
He said, “We did not perceive this kind of odor yesterday. I think it must have been dropped here overnight and from the look of this, it seems she was killed by some ritual killers. The situation is causing panic in the area.”
