Ironically, the cows returned home without Usman Audu, our correspondent further gathered.

"The family of Usman Audu reached out to one of their district heads, Wakili, to help them find out by reporting the incident to security agencies, if the victim was arrested and in their custody, but could not be found."

The family continued the search and informed people in the bid to trace his movements and whereabouts and extended the search into the bush.

"Fortunately, they found his dead body in one farm in Igosun, with shoes and stick used to kill him with traces of blood recovered.

"They later discovered that part of his body had been dismembered, like penis, two hands, two eyes and his heart, from the body."

The corpse has been deposited at the Offa general hospital by the Nigeria police for further investigation.
