The head was recovered on Ojelade Street, Fadeyi, on Thursday by security operatives from the Alakara Police Station. The deceased, who had been linked to a murder last Monday, was killed in an apparent reprisal.
A resident said:
“In the morning of Monday last week, a lottery agent, Sheriff Alasia, was killed. Tunde, who is believed to have been among the killers, was attacked on the night of that very day. He was shot several times while his head was chopped off. His body was recovered by the police but his head remained missing for almost four days. The killers were playing with the head in the neighbourhood and were reported to the police. On Thursday night, policemen came to Ojelade Street to recover the head.”
