Six days after he was declared missing, the mutilated body of a 12-year-old school boy, who was an apprentice in a barber’s shop in Obantoko area of Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, has been found.

The decomposing body was found in a bush at Kotogbo on Monday evening after he was declared missing at the neighbouring Olasunkanmi Community near Asero Housing Estate.

The Community Development Association reported the matter to the Divisional Police Officer at Obantoko who immediately swung into action and informed other stations of the missing boy but the search was unfruitful.

The community’s search, however, led to the discovery of the boy’s lifeless body in a bush on Monday evening.

A youth leader in the community, Adesina Olatunni, narrated how they found the body of the missing boy, adding that it had been evacuated to the hospital for autopsy.

Calls to the CDA Chairman, Mr Kayode Olatunji, by Persecondnews were unsuccessful as they were declined.

It was, however, learnt the deceased boy, who was assisting his master (the barber) to operate a Point-of-Sale (POS) at the barber’s shop, was approached by a friend of his master, to transfer N60,000 in four tranches.

A source said: “What we heard was that last week Thursday, he said he wanted to check on a customer who did a PoS transaction, apparently may be there was something to sort out about the transaction but the boy never came back.

“It is suspected to be a ritual killing because the boy’s eyes were plucked while his wrists were also cut off. It is an incident that has thrown residents into mourning.”
