A 46-year-old woman, Mrs. Eunice Titilayo Ogundele, has been murdered after allegedly being r*ped by yet to be identified persons, at Igede Ekiti, weekend.
According to the husband of the deceased, Mr. Michael Ogundele, his wife left home in the early hours of Friday for a church service at her pastor’s residence.
He said she was allegedly hit with a pestle on the head by her assailants on the way.
“Yesterday (Thursday) which was a market day, she went to the market and returned home to rest.
“This morning (Friday), we went our different ways after I opened the door a little after five o’clock. She left for an early morning church service at her pastor’s residence.
“We went our separate ways at Igede-Ado road. I did not know I was seeing her for the last time. Few minutes to six they called me to come to somewhere in the town. I went and met my wife dead with two deep wounds on her head,” Mr Ogundele said amid tears.
