Three days after officers of the Nigerian Police Force uncovered the horror forest at Soka area of Ibadan city, where scores of human skeletons, skulls and decomposing and mutilated body parts of dead bodies were found, a man was yesterday (Tuesday) caught with three human tongues.
He was caught with more than 400 posters of a governorship aspirant; other items included bra and undies of different sizes and other female clothes.
Before he was mobbed, the police came to his rescue and he was taken to the Oluyole Police Station, where people thronged to catch a glimpse of the items found on him.
Another man was beaten to pulp by angry mob who allegedly found in his possession two Blackberry devices, another phone and a booklet which contained list of human parts and their prices. He was attacked at Yemetu, by mob who suspected him to be a member of those operating at Soka forest of death.
When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), of Oyo State Police Command, SP Olabisi Ilobanafor said that only a forensic test could determine whether the tongues were human’s or not. According to her, the man was a destitute. She also said that the man had been taken to the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID)for further investigation.
The PPRO however, warned members of the public to desist from taking laws into their hands, expressing worries that since the discovery of Ibadan horror forest, angry mobs had been attacking people indiscriminately on every little suspicion.
According to her, one person had been killed and another person was rescued by the police.
