Three years after gruesome murder of only daughter, woman stabbed to death in Ondo

Unknown assailants murdered a woman in Akure, the capital of Ondo State.

This came three years after her only daughter was stabbed to death.

The dead woman, Yemisi Ajayi, was stabbed to death at her home in the Abusoro area of Ijoka, the state capital, by unknown people.

Mrs. Ajayi was stabbed five times on her stomach while lying in her bed, according to several reports.

In 2018, her 20-year-old daughter, Oluwaseun Ajila, a model known as Fiona among her friends, was stabbed to death in the same residence by an unidentified assailant.

One of the sources, who requested anonymity, lamented the death of the deceased woman, saying that the occupant of the residents raised the alarm and notified neighbours when she discovered her in the pool of blood.

The source 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 not until she found her mother lying lifeless, as the assailants packed some cloths 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.”

Another source who could not control her emotion, said the death of Ajayi was a shock adding that her only daughter was murdered three years ago, inside the same house.

When contacted over the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Funmilayo Odunlami who confirmed the killing, said investigation has begun to unraveling the circumstances leading to the gruesome murder.
