The body of a missing twin was discovered inside a vehicle owned by a co-tenant in Olujoda area of Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital.
On Friday, the corpse of the 7-year-old twin, Olagoke Morire, who went missing was found inside the car of a co-tenant with her body peeled off.
The deceased and her twin sister, Olagoke Mokore, were with their cousin in their apartment before they went out to buy biscuits at around 1:15pm.
Once downstairs, Mokore remembered she forgot her money upstairs and so she hurriedly left to pick it. However, when she returned, she couldn’t find her twin sister.
Their mother, Kehinde Ajayi, said the twin sister and neighbors raised the alarm and the situation prompted a search which proved abortive until 8pm when her peeled body was found inside a co-tenant’s vehicle that was parked in their compound.
“When we woke up in the morning I took care of my children as usual. They are twins. I gave them money to buy biscuits and left them in the house with my cousin.
“Suddenly, I received a distress call from one of my neighbors around 3pm that Morire was missing and that they have searched everywhere but they couldn’t find her. I quickly left what I was doing and rushed home. We searched everywhere to look for her yet we didn’t find her. We reported the incident to Ologede Police Division and we were told to wait for 24hrs before they could take any action.
“It was later around 8pm that someone discovered her corpse inside a vehicle parked in our compound with her body peeled off”, she added.
When contacted, the Ekiti State Police Public Relation Officer, Abutu Sunday, confirmed the incident, describing it as unfortunate and an autopsy would be conducted to unravel the cause of the girl’s death.
