A 28-year-old graduate’s body identified simply as Kehinde, was found in a well in Ketu.
According to reports by PUNCH the victim had been declared missing before his bloated body was found in an abandoned well in their house on Friday.
Apparently, Kehinde had a strange mental illness for about five years and was always indoors but was said to have recovered recently from the illness before he was found dead in the well.
A resident of the house narrated Kehinde’s story saying, “Kehinde and his twin brother are well educated and they graduated from the university together. Their mother died a few years back, but their father stays in the house.
“He had been sick for the past five years and because of that, he was always kept indoors.
“His illness was strange because it was off and on. On a particular day, he absent-mindedly walked away from the house before somebody who knew him brought him back home.
“They used to chain his legs and hands to keep him indoors. A few times that he stepped out, he was in chains.”
Another said, “It was after the corpse had been taken away that the family told the landlords and some family friends that they found his body in the abandoned well.
“The well was always locked. The residents in the house depend on the community borehole for water. How Kehinde entered the well is a mystery.”
