Residents of Ilora Community in Oyo State have uncovered human parts in an uncompleted building in the community.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo Command, SP. Adewale Osifeso, confirmed the incident in a text message sent to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Wednesday.
Osifeso said that an update would be provided on the matter soon.
NAN, however, gathered that the offensive odour oozing out from the location attracted those living around the place to a building on Oyo-Ilora Road in Oyo West Local Government Area.
It was gathered that the people who stumbled on the decomposing human parts in an uncompleted building reported the incident at a Police Station in the area.
A resident, who simply identified himself as Lanre, told NAN that he was there when a police team visited the building, and that some suspects had been arrested.
Lanre said that a complete human arm was found and some other items which suggested that some people had probably been killed.
Another resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told NAN that human bones and school uniform of a child was also found at the site.
The source said that the discoveries raised suspicions that the act might have been going on for a while.
Those living close to the site said they used to see a man riding a motorcycle to the place.
They said the man used to work with a shovel in the building; they thought he was clearing debris, but did not know he was carrying out criminal activities there,” the source said. (NAN)
