Suspected cultists have beheaded a yet to be identified man in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
Severed body of the victim was dumped at First Junction along Sakpoba road in Benin City.
The victim appeared to have been dragged along the road after being beheaded as there were bruises on his body.
Residents in the area who gathered to catch a glimpse of the body said they did not know the victim.
They described the incident as barbaric.
Several persons have been killed in the past two weeks in renewed rival cult war in Benin City.
Over 22 suspected cultists including one Emmanuel Ogbemudia who was allegedly involved in several cult killings were arrested in the last one month.
Policemen from Adesuwa Police Division came to remove the severed body but declined comments
