Residents of Apete in Ibadan Oyo State, Nigeria are in shock as remnants of a decomposed body of a man were reportedly found in the bedroom of his house after four years.
It was learnt that the deceased (unknown identity) was reportedly seen by neighbours four years ago during one of his occasional trip to Ibadan from Port Harcourt in Rivers State where he resides at the time.
As at the time of filing this report, the cause of death is yet to be ascertained.
Residents told newsmen that non of the residents in the area knew about the incident until this week when the community decided to enter into the compound to cut the overgrown grass inside his compound which has become a haven for snakes and rodents.
It was gathered that the people who were contracted for the job of cutting the grass in the deceased compound were told to jump into the compound since the gate of the house was locked from behind, only for them to find out that the car of the house owner is in the premises and has been covered with grass.
According to eyewitnesses, after managing to cut down the bush, they peeped at the window of the building and saw the skeleton of the decomposed corpse on his bed with a phone in his hand.
Officers of the Oyo state police command are currently carrying out a comprehensive investigation into the incident.
