Possible perpetrators of the harm the deceased suffered with another person, who was also abducted and found dead with him, according to report, were herdsmen.

Their killers had abducted Eromosole in his farm at Odighi, Ovia North-East Local Government Area of Edo State and demanded for N4m ransom from his family but took his life after his family failed to come up with the said money.

““It was on Tuesday after the police failed to find my father that I begged hunters and vigilante to help me. It was during the search that we found my father. His skull was cut out with a cutlass, while his hands were also cut,” Dr. Raymond Eromosele, the deceased’s son, told newsmen.
