Fear has gripped residents of highbrow Adeniyi Jones and adjoining Adekunle village estates in Ikeja, Lagos state capital following strange discovery of decapitated remains of two teenage girls on the streets within 72 hours.The first corpse was discovered neatly packaged inside a travelling bag on the street at Jafac close in Adekunle village, very close to a hotel while the second was discovered 72 hours later, wrapped in a nylon bag on the street in Aba Johnson Crescent, Akora Estate, still very close to another hotel. These estates are just two poles apart.Clearview TV gathered that efforts by detectives from Mancenter Police division to unravel the mystery surrounding the incidents have not been successful. Police sources said investigations carried out with a view to ascertaining if the hotels and some of the residential buildings installed CCTV which would have aided police investigation did not yield positive results.It was discovered that the area of coverage of the CCTV installed in one of the buildings at Jafac close, Adekunle village did not extend to where the corpse was dumped.However, the CCTV in the nearby hotel was said to have packed up during the rainy season.It was learnt that detectives later interrogated some staff of the hotel and residents over the incidents but it was not known whether they invited the private guards on duty at the main gate leading to the estate for questioning.Lamenting, one of the residents at Adekunle village where the first discovery was made said “it is unfortunate also that the police are yet to question the private guards strategically manning the area. While detectives were battling with the incident at Adekunle village, another shocking discovery of the remains of a fair-complexioned girl was discovered, dumped on the street at Aba Johnson Crescent, Adeniyi Jones in the same area. The latest shocking discovery caused apprehension not only in the highbrow Adeniyi Jones area but in Ikeja the state capital.Security has therefore been beefed up in all the affected and adjoining estates in the area while residents and visitors are subjected to thorough searches before being allowed access into the vast estates.An official of Lagos State Ministry of Health who was involved in evacuating the bodies said the bodies were cut into parts and neatly packed into the bags before being dumped on the streets.Clearview TV recollects that such an ugly incident happened at the same place 20 years ago in the same estate when one female teenager, Adeline Eze had her eyes plucked out by another teenage apprentice in Ikeja under bridge for rituals.
