The police in Osun State, Nigeria, have arrested a doctor and other workers of Tinu-Ola Clinic and Maternity Centre on Bishop Street, Osogbo, following alleged mutilation of the corpse of a 60-year-old woman, who died in the clinic.

The woman, identified as Iya Waliat, was taken to the hospital by her neighbours on Wednesday after she complained of an illness.

A young boy was said to have been left behind to run errands for the woman at the hospital. After some hours, the boy apparently went to a nearby house to use the toilet.

He was allegedly prevented from entering into the hospital when he returned and was told that the woman had died.

Residents living near the hospital said the boy was also not allowed to see the corpse of the woman, and he went home to inform others.

The hospital workers reportedly prevented those who came from seeing the corpse. They allegedly told them to come back to collect the corpse very early on Thursday.



Family members of the deceased were said to have expressed shock when they saw the corpse of the woman on Thursday and discovered that some parts of her body were missing.

A woman who identified herself as the daughter of the deceased, Waliat Raji, said, "Part of her lower lip was cut off. The tip of the nose is missing and somewhere close to her eye was mutilated.

"They wanted us to collect her corpse very early in the morning because they knew it would be difficult to prove that they cut some parts of her body after we might have taken her home."

A police source said that the case was being investigated by the State Department of Criminal Investigation.

He said, "The case was brought here. It was taken to the SDCI and I heard the officers there are preparing to go and remove the corpse.

"The doctor and other hospital workers have been picked up for interrogation, while the complainants have been invited."
