A middle aged woman identified as Yemi Ajayi has been stabbed to death by unknown persons.
It was learnt that the incident happened at the wee hours of yesterday at the residence of the deceased at Abusoro area of Ijoka in Akure, Ondo State capital.
Multiple sources disclosed that the woman was stabbed five times on her stomach on her bed.
A source who preferred not to be mentioned, said an occupant of the house alerted neighbours when she saw her in the pool of blood, according to Trace News Magazine.
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 revealed that Ajayi’s death came after her daughter was murdered three years ago, inside the same house.
As of the time of filing this report, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, said “details of the incident were still sketchy”.
A 20-year-old model and graduate of Adeyemi College of Education, Fiona was raped and stabbed to death in October 2018.
Fiona had prepared dinner for herself and her mother who was absent at the time and served her own portion on the table complete with water. It was at this point that the assailant came in to the house and attacked her, raping and stabbing her to death in the process.
After committing the dastardly act, the assailant left the house through the back door and nobody knew about the incident until her mother came back home later and met the lifeless body of her daughter on her bed.
The family is already raising the alarm that the prime suspect in the death of Fiona three years ago, who was said to have been released by the police without prosecution, may be connected to the death of her mother.
