The person who made the gruesome discovert said “I was feeding the chickens at around 10 am this morning when I saw dogs eating something and were fighting over it.
“When I go closer I was shocked to find that it was a human leg.
On closer inspection I noticed that the nails had black nail polish,funny enough there was no sign of blood as the leg seemed old.
“The gogo who used to live there left in November last year.
“I immediately notified the poilce.”
Another resident said the leg looked like that of a girl who have been missing from the neighbourhood. She was a dating a foreigner.
