An eye witness who craved anonymity told PM News that for the intervention of the police, the building believed to be harbouring one of the suspected ritualists would have been burnt down.

The crowd who was baying for the blood of the two suspects found inside the tunnel, had set plans in motion to lynch them first and then set them ablaze.

Reports had also claimed that the two suspects arrested were in possession of an iPhone and looked sane until they were accosted by residents and they began to act like mentally deranged persons. "This matter is a pure case of destitute and not ritualists", Owoseni said.

Shoes belonging to male and female and other belongings of likely victims were found in the place, which also had parts of human beings concealed in sachets.
