80-YEAR-OLD WOMAN KILLED BY RITUALIST IN ONDO STATE
An 80-year-old woman has been killed with her two breasts removed by suspected ritual killers in Arigidi-Akoko in Akoko South West Local Government Area of Ondo State.
The incident occurred barely two weeks after a similar killing in the town involving a 50-year-old woman whose breasts were also removed by suspected ritualists.
The octogenarian, Kajusola Mogaji, was found by her neighbours in a pool of blood in her room.
The assailants were said to have hit her on the head with an object in the night in her home at Imo quarters in Arigidi-Akoko.
Unfortunately, the other occupants of the house were not around when the incident reportedly happened.
The Public Relations Officer of Ondo State Police Command, Mr Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident.
He said the police would not relent in fighting crime in the state, adding that perpetrators of killings in Ondo would be arrested and prosecuted.
One of the children of the deceased, Mrs Kehinde Adewumi, also confirmed the incident.
She described the killing as wicked and appealed to the police authorities in the state to ensure the perpetrators of the evil act were apprehended and brought to book.
The remains of the 80-year-old victim have since been deposited at the morgue in the State Specialist Hospital, Ikare-Akoko.
