By Olajide Idowu

Osun Police Command on Tuesday said the corpse of a 65-year-old woman, declared missing in Ilesa, was found on her farm with one of her eyes plucked.

This is contained in a statement issued by SP Yemisi Opalola, Osun Police Spokesperson.

She explained that the daughter of the deceased reported the discovery of her mother’s corpse to the police.

“At about 1.00 p.m on Monday, One Dare Oluyemi of Odundun Area Ilesa reported that her mother, Oluyemi Tunmise, 65, who the family had been searching for since Saturday, had been found dead.

“She said her mother was found dead with one of her eyes removed by yet-to-be-identified assailants on her farm at Fadahunsi Area of Ilesa, at about 11.30 a.m on Monday.”

Opalola said the police had visited the scene of the crime and had taken photographs.

However, the complainant refused the police to take the body of their mother to the mortuary or carry out further investigation.

They threatened to unleash violence and that they wished to bury the corpse.
