People suspected to be cultists have cut-off the head of a yet-to-be-identified man in Benin City, the Edo State capital, Sun News reports
The remaining part of the victim was dumped at First Junction along Sokponba road in Benin City at night.
The victim appeared to have been dragged along the road after being beheaded as there were bruises on his body.
Passers-by and residents in the area, who gathered to take a look at the body, said they did not know the victim.
They, however, described the incident as ‘cruel’.
Several persons have been killed in the past two weeks in renewed rival cult war in Benin City.
Last week, a boy in his late 20s was clubbed to death around Edo College axis by suspected cultists.
Over 22 suspected cultists including one Emmanuel Ogbemudia who was allegedly involved in several cult killings were arrested in the last one month.
Policemen from Adesuwa Police Division came to remove the severed body but declined any comments
