The decomposing remains of a yet-to-be-identified man have been abandoned at the PUNCH Newspaper, Magboro end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

A correspondent was attempting to navigate her way to the office when she suddenly saw the corpse tucked between the road median.

As she moved closer, she perceived a fetid smell emanating from the corpse, which had become bloated.

A bakery worker, who identified himself simply as Success, claimed that the deceased was a victim of jungle justice.

He said, “Our supplier told me that the deceased was a criminal; he stole a bike from someone at Arepo and when the person raised the alarm, some people ran after him, accosted him and he was killed.”

The spokesperson for the Federal Road Safety Corps, Florence Okpe, said it was a police case as the victim was not killed in an accident.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said he was not aware of the incident.
