Kidnappers have killed Gbenga Olofinmoyegun, a Director of the Ondo State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), who was declared missing on Thursday.
Funmilayo Odunlami, Police Public Relations Officer in Ondo State, confirmed that Olofinmoyegun’s body was found on Saturday beheaded in Akure, the state capital.
Odunlami said some people identified the deceased through his suit before he went missing.
“Yesterday afternoon, somebody called to inform us that a decomposing corpse was found at Saint Theresa, close to St. Peter in Akure,” the police spokesperson said.
“When the police got there to remove the corpse, some people identified him as the director we have been searching for in the past three days.”
“It was his suit they used to identify him, but his head has been cut off, and his chest ripped open while his intestine was removed.”
The police spokesperson said that investigation was ongoing to unravel the circumstances behind the killing of the TESCOM Director.
“Investigation has started; his phone was left behind and some other things too. So, we are going to work with what we have to know if he had issues with anybody.”
“And maybe it’s a ritual case, but it is an investigation that will reveal all these,” she said.
