He said the moment the security men attached to the council saw the corpse, they informed him and he also alerted the DPO, Nigerian Police, Ilobu Division and the policemen arrived at the spot.

When asked if the killing was cult-related, the politician said, “I can’t ascertain that because I’m not a member of any cult group. We saw hid lifeless body in a pool of his blood with his phone and some money by his side.

“We were able to identify him through contact on his phone. The police called one woman who incidentally happened to be his step-mother.
