He was said to have been dragged out of the bus at the Total bus stop in the Mushin end of the Ikorodu Road. A witness, Jacob Amos, said the incident happened around 8pm on Wednesday, adding that policemen from the Alakara Police Division were alerted.
He said, “The man was in the bus when he was dragged out at Total bus stop. They brought him into Mushin and I immediately alerted the policemen from Alakara.
“The police went to Adewusi Street, and searched the place for more than one hour, but they did not find anything. They patrolled the place and when they did not see anything, they left.
“Around 10pm when everybody had gone home, they brought the man to the Railway Line and push him from head down into a filled canal. Only his leg was sticking out.”
The victim was said to have died soon afterwards.
It was learnt that policemen from Alakara later arrived on Thursday to remove the corpse. A witness, who prefered to be anonymous said the police ordered him to pull out the corpse from the murky water.
Friends of the deceased from Market Street, Oyingbo, were said to have shown up to identify him. A resident lamented that the police in the area, were not doing enough to arrest the unrest in Mushin, lamenting that there were saboteurs in the force.
He said it was the second time in a week that people from the Oyingbo area would be hounded and killed in Mushin, which could start a war between the two communities.
