A bricklayer has reportedly murdered his girlfriend and dumped her remains inside the loo in the Balogun Agoro area of Osogbo, Osun State capital.
Punch gathered on Thursday, April 2, 2015 that the suspect, identified simply as Soji, is a bricklayer and had been dating the lady for some years.
The decomposing remains of the deceased 20-year-old was discovered and evacuated by the police operatives in the area on Sunday, March 29, 2015.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a resident of the area said that they were unaware that the corpse was inside the toilet until policemen from the Dugbe Division came to evacuate it.
According to him, some people had noticed and complained about the stench odour emanating from the toilet without any suspicion that it was a human.
He added that the suspect often poured disinfectant into the toilet to suppress the odour.
He said, “Policemen came on Sunday and picked the lady’s body from the toilet. They broke the wall before they could remove her.
“The man’s name is Soji. The police initially arrested the wrong person because that one’s name is also Soji. But I learnt that they have released the innocent man.”
Meanwhile, another resident said nobody was sure if the deceased was actually killed by the suspect.
He said, “The lady might have died and the man, out of fear, dumped her body inside the toilet.”
The Police spokesperson of the state, Mrs. Folasade Odoro, is yet to make an official statement regarding the report.
