A 25-year-old mother of two, Miss Kehinde Olomola, has died from the injuries she sustained after she was attacked in her home at Igede community, in the Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
Her twin sister, Taiwo, and mother, Dupe, told PUNCH Metro on Thursday that the late Kehinde received a knife stab in the neck and later died at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido-Ekiti, on Monday.
Taiwo claimed that she heard a male voice at the background when she called her twin sister on the telephone around 9pm on Sunday.
She said, “I heard a male voice in the background and I angrily ended the call after inquiring about the male voice.
“The male voice was strange to me, I got angry and asked, ‘‘What is a man doing in your room at such late hour?’ I didn’t wait for an answer before ending the call. That was the last I heard from her until we learnt the following morning that she had been stabbed in the neck.”
A family friend, Daniel Oluwadare, said, “She made efforts to respond when asked questions; she was able to say that she was attacked by one Odunayo, but we could not decipher the other name she mentioned.”
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Caleb Ikechukwu, said the incident was reported shortly after the act was committed.
Ikechukwu said, “Police officers were deployed in the scene, where they saw blood on her phone and an axe that was used to commit the crime. The lady was rushed to the hospital where she later died.
“Before the lady died, she made a dying declaration of who stabbed her. She mentioned some names and the police took note of those names and made arrests.”
He said three persons had been arrested regarding the crime as investigation continued.
