A 20-year-old girl, Ebunoluea Osatuyi, has been hacked to death by yet-to-be-identified burglars in Akure the Ondo State capital.
It was gathered that the deceased, who was seeking admission into the university, returned from a coaching centre where had gone for tutorials in view of the forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), that fateful day when the in incident occurred.
Sources disclosed that the deceased was said to have been killed after she ran into some burglars, who broke into her father’s house through the windows, at the Okuta Elerinla axis in Akure.
Narrating her ordeal, mother of the deceased, Bosede Osatuyi, said she discovered her daughter’s lifeless body lying in a pool of blood, in the sitting room, when she returned home that evening.
“My husband and I entered the sitting room and found our daughter with her two hands tied with rope on the floor.”
“She was bleeding profusely and we also found the axe and a pestle with a bloodstain on the chair including a rope hung on the fan.”
“We quickly rushed her to the hospital immediately where she was confirmed dead before we went to the police station to report,” Mrs. Osatuyi lamented.
The visibly devastated mother called on the State Government and security agencies to unravel those behind the dastardly act and bring them to justice.
The State Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO), Funmilayo Odunlami, who confirmed the incident disclosed that investigation had commenced in the gruesome murder.
