The Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) Director in Ondo State, Gbenga Olofinmoyegun, who was reported missing on Thursday, has been confirmed dead by the Ondo State Police Command.
The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN was informed on Sunday by SP Funmilayo Odunlami, the command’s spokesperson, that the director’s mangled corpse was discovered in Akure on Saturday.
According to SP Odunlami, the deceased’s suit from before he vanished helped several people identify him.
“Yesterday afternoon, someone called to tell us that a dead body had been discovered at Saint Theresa, close to St. Peter in Akure.
“When the police got there to remove the corpse some people came around and identified him as the director we have been searching for in the past three days”.
“It was his suit they used to identify him, but his head has been cut off and his chest ripped open while his intestine was removed,” Odunlami said.
The police spokesperson said investigation was ongoing to unravel the circumstances behind the killing of the director.
