This is both new and intensely terrifying as fear ran down the spines of residents and on-lookers after a dismembered corpse of a middle-aged man was found in the middle of the road on Sunday in Benin city, Edo state.
The shocking incident caused a traffic buildup at the popular Five junction in Benin where the corpse was found but officers of the Nigerian police were on ground to control the traffic.
Specific details to unveil the unusual mystery behind this occurence could not be gathered as there were no eyewitnesses’ testimony which led to diverse opinions as to what really happened.
Some of the residents and passers-by who were interviewed claimed the man might have been killed in an accident while others argued that he was murdered by unknown gunmen who shot him and dismembered his body before dumping his corpse in the middle of the road.
One of the victim’s legs was allegedly taken away as it was not found with the other parts.
The corpse has since been evacuated.
