Suspected ritualists have killed and dismembered the body of a pastoralist, Usman Audu, in Igosun, Oyun Local Government Area of Kwara State.
It was gathered that the deceased had on Thursday shepherd his cows to bush for grazing, but did not return home that day.
The mutilated body of Audu was later discovered in a farm in the village by a search party.
The deceased’s heart, private part and eyes had been removed by his assailants.
According to a source, “Audu left home with his cows on Thursday morning for grazing. But we became worried in the evening when we didn’t see him, but only his cows returned.
