A 73-year-old pensioner, Mrs Adetutu Ajayi, wasÂ on TuesdayÂ killed in Ado Ekiti by suspected assassins, which some residents said could be â€˜Yahoo boysâ€™.
Mrs Ajayi, daughter of a former Accountant General of the old
Western Region, Mr Samuel Sotoowa, was killed at her residence at number 10, Moferere, Ajilosun area of Ado Ekiti.
The deceased’s decapitated body was found at her three-bedroom bungalow aroundÂ 11amÂ by members of her church who had come visiting.
The mother of five, who lived alone in the flat with a tenant occupying the â€˜boys quartersâ€™ at the back of her house, worked at the Federal Ministry of Agriculture for 35 years before retirement.
Speaking on the gruesome murder, the deceasedâ€™s daughter, Mrs Titilayo Ajayi, said she was called from Akure, the capital of Ondo State, aroundÂ 11pmÂ by church members that her mother sustained home injury, which she said made her to rush down to assess the situation.
