The security operatives currently combing the place reportedly found human parts concealed in some sachets

An eye witness who was among those who uncovered the alleged hideout said the den was being used by a mad man. “About three days ago we discovered that there is a cage and we went there, beside the CCTV camera, a man who has been taken away now by the police lives there and we used to think he is a mad man.

“Some items discovered include ladies underwear and lots more, we later saw that he is normal, many human items were found there,” Prince Adeyanju, a resident, said. Officers of the police Rapid Response Squad have arrived the scene.

Three suspects, who have been arrested, are currently being interrogated at Isokoko police station, while a sharp knife was found on one of the suspects said to have been posing as a mad man.

There are at least eight patrol vans of the police at the location, while a huge crowd converged on the place, making it difficult for free movement.
