Police in Makurdi, Benue State capital, Thursday last week discovered an amputated human leg wrapped in a carton along Moses Shaaji Street, Logo 2, Makurdi.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Daniel Ezeala, told newsmen that the carton, containing the leg, might have been dropped in the early hours of the day by unknown persons.
Ezeala said he suspected that the act might have been carried out in the area by cult groups for ritual purposes and assured that the police were already investigating the matter to unearth those responsible for it.
He appealed to the members of the public to give information to the police to enable it unravel the culprits and bring them to book.
Logo 2 area of Makurdi is known for strange and bizarre incidences most of which in recent past were occasioned by cult activities.
