Two young Nigerian women have been killed in separate incidents that appear to be ritual murders.
A day after the news of the callous death of Jennifer Anthony–300-level student of the University of Jos–broke, another unidentified 20 year old was found dead in similar circumstance in Ogwashi-Uku, in the Nigeria oil-rich Delta State.
It is believed suspected cultists killed the 20-year-old, whose corpse they dumped at Ubulu-Unor Road, located in the state, said ThePUNCH.
“Some people who passed the road early Tuesday morning saw the corpse and raised the alarm and many people rushed down to see for themselves”, a source was quoted to have said.
“When we got there, we saw the girl wearing a pair of jean trousers and a white top. Her face was covered with blood and her two eyes were no more. You can see her eye sockets empty.”
Vigilantes reportedly notified the police, who visited the crime scene and took the corpse to a morgue.
Bright Edafe, the spokesperson for the police command, confirmed the incident.
“The police were alerted to the scene of the incident by community youths who discovered the corpse of the lady with two eyes removed.
“The DPO in Ogwashi-Uku confirmed the incident to me and he said the corpse has since been taken to the mortuary.”
He noted that the police had commenced investigation into the killing of the lady.
