“We were told he went to pick his girlfriend at Isolo on Saturday night. They went to Moshalashi bus stop to buy suya and took some bottles of alcoholic drinks.”
Late Koyejo’s body was already peeling.

The vehicles windows were all wind up, but we saw two people inside it and we raised the alarm which attracted people. We started knocking on the SUV, but the two occupants were motionless.
“We wanted to force the doors Open, but people warned against it, so we decided to report to the police. The police came and forced the door open. Well, some people believed that the lovers might have died of a Yoruba traditional charm(Magu), prepared by husbands against their cheating wives. What else would have killed them if not magu, becat there was no mark of violence on their bodies and they were naked, meaning that they were making love. The woman was wearing her wedding ring”.
