Suspected ritualists have killed a man and woman in Amanze and Amainyi communities in the Ihitte/ Uboma Local Government Area of Imo State .
The incidents , our correspondent learnt , had caused panic in the communities as many residents fled the area .
The decomposing bodies of the victims were discovered inside a big sack by a bush path in the area .
The communities , an indigene told our correspondent, were border areas between the Ihitte Uboma and Obowo local government areas of the state .
A source said, “ The bodies of the unknown victims were discovered by villagers going to farm on Saturday following an offensive smell that emanated from the bush path where they were dumped .
“ Some of the vital organs of the victims such as their eyes, breasts and other private parts were missing and the hair on the woman ’s head was shaved off .
“ The decomposing bodies could not be easily identified as their skin layers were already peeling off . Also, their genitals and eyes were harvested , making it difficult to identify the victims .”
Our correspondent learnt that there were no reported cases of missing persons before the decomposing bodies were found .
When contacted , the police spokesman in the state , Orlando Ikeokwu, said he had not been informed of the incident .
