A young lady, Ebunoluwa Osatuyi, has been killed by yet-to-be-identified persons in her father’s house at the Okuta Elerinla area of Akure, the state capital.
Osatuyi, 20, was seeking admission into a university before her untimely death.
It was gathered that she was killed shortly after she returned from a coaching centre where was taking tutorials ahead of the forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
A source in the area stated that the alleged killers gained access to the house through the windows and ransacked all the rooms in the house.
The reason for taking the life of the young lady was yet unknown as of the time of filing this report.
The deceased’s mother, Bosede Osatuyi, said when she came back from work on the fateful day, she met her daughter in the pool of blood.
She added that she also saw an axe and a pestle in the sitting room where the victim was killed.
She said, “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.”
She urged the state government and the security agencies in the state expose the killers and bring them to book.
Spokesperson of state police command, Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident, stating that investigation had commenced into the incident.
“The parents are not suspecting anybody but we have commenced investigation into the matter,” Odunlami stated.
