Nigerian Police in Delta State has recovered the body of a 23-year-old woman, who was killed and beheaded on Sunday by unknown assailants for suspected ritual purpose in Ozoro community, Isoko North Local Government Area Council of the state.
It was gathered that the killers decapitated her head from the body and abandoned it in an uncompleted building where police detectives later recovered it.
This occurred just a few days after a female student of Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro, identified as Happiness, was reportedly similarly murdered in cold blood and her private parts removed by her assailants.
According to reports, the deceased was declared missing a few days before the body was recovered by the Delta State Police.
A source who pleaded anonymity said, the woman left home on Friday but never returned. Her phone was not connecting when calls were put across to her by her family members.
The acting Delta State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, when contacted, confirmed the incident, saying the police were doing their best to apprehend those behind the heinous act.
“The body of a lady was found with her head chopped off and her blood drained. The suspects went with her head and the blood,” said DSP Edafe.
