It was a horrific sight when the decomposing remains of 21 year old Morenikeji Owolabi were discovered in a shrine at the rustic Eposo village, Ishara, in Remo North Local Government Council of Ogun state.
Morenikeji, a female student of Science Laboratory Technology department at the Gateway Polytechnic, Saapade, hails from Ekiti state but was said to be missing some days ago.
But on Tuesday, her dismembered and decomposing remains were....
found littered at a Shrine by policemen.
The girl was allegedly lured to the shrine by a herbalist, Femi Awise, where she was found dead.
Awise, a native of Isara and prime suspect, is said to be on the run but five persons suspected to be working for him, including a cyclist who conveyed the girl to the shrine and an apprentice of Awise, have been arrested.
The suspects are Adeyemi Ademolu (the cyclist), Omolaso Taiwo (Awise’s apprentice), Lateef Ali, Akinyemi Dare, and Sokoya Wasiu.
According to Ademolu, the victim spoke with Awise twice seeking information about the direction while being conveyed to the shrine.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Valentine Ntomchukwu, led some reporters to the shrine tucked inside a forest.
He said investigation had started to ascertain how the victim was killed.
Although the decaying legs of the girl exhumed from a shallow grave few meters away from the shrine were discovered but The Nation gathered that investigation continues to trace where her head, breasts and private part were kept.
The cubicle – size shrine made of corrugated iron sheets, was strewn with scary fetish objects, bottles of palm oil knives, plates and a pot filled with boiled human flesh and which had also began to emit foul odour.
