A 52-year-old woman, identified as Yemi Ajayi, has been stabbed to death by unknown assailants at her residence in Akure, Ondo State.
It was gathered that the deceased was the mother of 20-year-old Oluwaseun Ajila who was brutally murdered some three years ago in Ondo state.
In 2018, Oluwaseun was stabbed to death and her boyfriend, Ebenezer Adejimola, was arrested in connection with her murder and subsequently arraigned in court.
According to Vanguard, Mrs Ajayi was stabbed to death in her sleep on Tuesday, November 9, at her home in Abusoro area of Akure.
The deceased was reportedly found in the pool of her own blood in the early hours of Tuesday with about five stab wounds in her stomach.
She was said to be found by a relative living with her after she didn’t wake up for their usual morning devotion, who then alerted the neighbors.
A source who spoke with the publication said,
“The young girl narrated to people that when she woke up, she was looking for her mother so that they can pray together, unfortunately, she didn’t see her. She went on searching for her until she found her mother lying lifeless, as the assailants packed some clothes in the wardrobe and used it to cover her body. When I got there today, I started crying, then I called some of our colleagues.”
The incident has been confirmed by the Spokesperson of the State Police Command, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, who stated that details of the incident is still sketchy.
She added that investigation has commenced and the killers would be brought to justice soon.
