An unidentified young man has been found dead on the street in Lagos after he was inflicted with several cuts and he bled to death.
It was gathered that the lifeless body was found beside a notorious black spot at Aboye Street in Ejigbo Lagos known for cultism and other criminal activities.
The identity of the victim was not known to the residents who believed that he must have been murdered somewhere else and brought to the area.
According to the residents, they woke up in the morning and found the lifeless body bleeding with several cuts that severed his body.
Some of the residents said that they had checked and found out that he was not a known face in the area and so they concluded that he might have been killed before being brought there.
The resident reported to the police at Ejigbo Division and the police went there, retrieved the body and deposited at the mortuary for autopsy report.
When P.M Express correspondent visited Ejigbo Police Station, the DPO was not around to comment on the matter. However, a police source confirmed the incident and said that the police have since commenced investigation into the matter.
The source said that the police were working on two premises which involved cult activity and being a victim of armed robbery attack.
It was gathered that so far nobody has come forward to claim the corpse. It means that after some weeks in the mortuary, the corpse may be taken along with others for mass burial and his relations may not have access to it again. The police said that no arrest has been made yet in connection with the death.
