Residents reportedly woke up to see the lifeless body of one of the deceased simply identified as Otobo close to New York Junction, along Udu Road.

A tricycle operator, who spoke in confidence, said: “I saw him lying dead this morning along the road. He looked fresh. It is really sad how his life was wasted because of cultism”.

While details on the two others killed in Ovwian community are sketchy, unconfirmed reports say the three killings may be connected.
