There was pandemonium at the popular Five Junction Roundabout in Benin City as residents woke up to find what appears to be a dismembered man in the middle of the road.
The incident caused slight traffic but officers of the Edo state police command were on ground to control the traffic.
Concrete details as what led to the incident could not be gathered as there were no eyewitnesses which led to diverse opinions as to what really happened.
But some of the residents who were interviewed claimed the man was killed in an accident while others argued that he was murdered by unknown gunmen who shot him and dismembered his body before dumping his corpse in the middle of the road.
One of the victim’s legs was allegedly taken away. The corpse has since been evacuated.
