The lifeless body of an unidentified was yesterday found floating on the River Osun, around Osunjela town, near Osogbo.
According to Punch NG, residents of Osunjela said the body was discovered floating on the river early in the morning.
As of 6pm, the corpse had yet to be removed, as people converged on a bridge to catch a glimpse of the body floating on the river.

When contacted, the Assistant Public Relations Officer, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Osun State Command, Adigun Michael, said a team had been dispatched to evacuate the body.
“Our men have been there. The body is already afloat, which means he must have died many hours ago. We don’t know anything about his identity yet.
