Police Debunk Headless Bodies In Ijebu Ode Rumours

I knew right from the onset that the story was false, very very false that’s why I didn’t publish it…I wonder how easy it is for some people to just sit down and cook up such stories…they no dey fear God, smh!’


Just in case you have heard or read that story
about headless bodies of three suspected female students being thrown out
from a Range Rover and dumped in an area in Ijebu Ode, please do not believe
that story
.

The Ogun State Police Command has debunked
the message that circulated via BlackBerry that:

“Three headless bodies suspected to be that of
females were thrown off a Range Rover Sport Jeep at Ijebu Ode-Ibadan Road just
now.

One is fair in complexion with University of Lagos
identity card (Yetunde Ajao) inside her bag. The second is an Olabisi Onabanjo
University student, Oyindamola Esan, also fair in complexion and tall.

The last one is short, plump and dark with no
identity. Please kindly notify their families and friends if you know them
before the bodies are run over by vehicles.”

The pictures above were supposedly those of
the beheaded girls.


But the spokesperson for the state police command,
Muyiwa Adejobi, told Punch correspondent that the rumours were mischievous and
simply untrue.

“When I heard about it, I alerted our men who went
there but saw nothing and got no report of such thing in the area,” Adejobi
said.

It was also learnt that many residents of the
town, who read the broadcast, abandoned their activities and went to Ijebu
Ode-Ibadan Road in search of the corpses.

One of them, Tolu Olaleye, said, “We have been
here for the past three hours searching all the bushes, but we are yet to see
anything. People have turned this road to tourist centre.”

A visit to UNILAG by PUNCH Metro showed that there
was no student in its database with the name of Yetunde Ajao. “We also received the message
about the headless bodies of three girls, one of which was believed to be a
student of UNILAG. We checked all our digital records but the name Yetunde Ajao
did not come up.” a unilag official said….
