Decomposed human intestines , a kidney , as well as items such as a cutlass , pairs of slippers , underwear , clothes , condoms , among others, were allegedly discovered in some black spots linking the drains.

The discovery came barely 48 hours after a similar den was uncovered at Obadeyi bus stop along the same expressway.

PUNCH Metro learnt that residents had seen some persons in tattered clothes at about 1 pm hovering around a spot , where a bag covered with black nylon was kept .

It was gathered that the “mad man ” took to his heels as the residents confronted his female counterparts with enquiries on their mission in the area .

A resident , who gave his name only as Joshua , said the fleeing suspect confirmed their suspicion and made them to search the spots around the drains, during which the items were uncovered .

He said , “ We saw a woman who dressed like a mad person loitering around the drains and we challenged her . At a spot , we saw a bag covered with black nylon . We found some plastic bottles in the bag . While we were emptying the bag and questioning the woman, we saw another ‘ mad man ’ close to the area . He tried to run away, but people gave him a chase and arrested him .

“ While questioning and beating them, policemen came and took them away. We discovered something wrapped in nylon inside the bag . When we opened it, we saw a human kidney and intestines . They were later set ablaze. ”

Another witness , Bayo George , said the ‘ mad woman’ was popularly called Iya Ibadan and had been staying around the area for long , adding that residents had been monitoring her movement since the

“ Yesterday (Wednesday ), people challenged her and while talking to her , they discovered a lot of new items in one of the bags she covered with tyres . The other man usually sits around this area too .

“ Today ( Thursday ) , we approached her again to ask her some questions and in the process , she ran into hiding in a bush along the drains . We brought her out with some nylons.

“ N11 , 500 was boldly written on a paper and placed on the top of the nylon that contained the human parts . Three other persons were also arrested and taken to the Isokoko Police Station . Criminal activities have been on in this area for many years . ”

A lady , who did not disclose her name , said she narrowly escaped from some suspected kidnappers at the bus stop two weeks ago .

“ I boarded a bus at Ikeja and a few minutes later , I discovered that a lot of people inside the bus had slept off as we were about to reach Ile Zik. I started shouting and the conductor was surprised that I was not asleep .

“ When they noticed that a car was coming behind us , they turned back at Ile – Zik and went to stop the car at National bus stop. Immediately they stopped the car , the passengers woke up . I gave testimony in church last week to appreciate God , ” she said .

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer , ASP Olarinde Famous- Cole , said the police would investigate the incident .

He said , “ We swung into action to protect some people from jungle justice. Most of these people are destitute ; they live anywhere . It is unfair; let us investigate and come up with our findings . If truly they found human parts , what was the essence of setting them ablaze?”
