Not less than two days after a ritual den was uncovered in Ijaiye area of Lagos State, another underground den operated by some kidnappers has been discovered at Ile-Zik on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, close to Ikeja, the state capital.
Two of those suspected to be operating the den were burnt to death on Thursday.
A combined security force including the Nigerian Police Force, Nigerian Army and the the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS) combed the area and reportedly found human parts concealed in some sachets.
Three suspects were arrested while a sharp knife was found on one of the suspects said to have been posing as a mad man.
The suspects are currently being interrogated at Isokoko Police Station.
Meanwhile, at least eight patrol vans of the police were reportedly on ground at the sceen, while a huge crowd converged on the place, making free movement of vehicles on the highway difficult.
