Yinka Kolawole in Osogbo
Two members of a cult group in Osogbo have killed a man suspected to be one of them in a horrible manner.
The two cultists, one of whom is said to be a recent jail-returnee, had tricked the victim to the back of Winners’ Primary and Secondary School located at Tinumola Estate before they smashed a big stone on his head.
The victim’s brain was said to have shattered immediately as the cultists fled the scene.
The ugly incident occurred around 6:00pm on Sunday. The victim simply identified as Wale died instantly.
Residents of the area had fled when the corpse of the victim was discovered at the desolated area.
Police operatives from Dada Estate Police Division were said to have arrived the scene and took the remains of the victim to a mortuary in Osogbo.
A police source who did not want his name in print told our correspondent that a phone found in the pocket of the victim had ranged few minutes after he was murdered.
The source said the victim’s father had called to know his whereabout and asked him to return home.
The source also informed our correspondent that a suspect was arrested on Monday.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Folasade Odoro,
said police men on patrol received a call that some people were fighting at Tinumola Estate and moved to the scene immediately.
