A site being used by suspected  ritualists has been uncovered by the Nigerian police in Ogun state.

Police found decomposing body of a male victim at the site, an abandoned filling station, at Iyana-Ilogbo area of Sango-Ota. Also  found were clothes, shoes, wigs, machete, and bags.

Two persons have been arrested.

Policemen attached to the Sango Police State, and the Special Anti-Robbery Squad team were said to have swooped on the one- storey building, acting on a tip off from a member of the community, and arrested the two suspects.

The suspected ritualists arrested at the location are Babatunde Taofeek and Hammed Hassan.

It was learnt that the escape of two victims of the suspect from the den and failed bid to recapture them gave the suspects away as their action attracted the attention of passers -by who thronged to the site.

Angry residents were said to have broken parts of the building where they also discovered items giving out foul odour.

Police Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed the incident, said the den was discovered at about 7am, and that the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Sango Division and men of the Anti-Robbery Squad‎ acted swiftly and arrested two suspects.
