A 54-year-old civil servant, Mrs Funmilayo Adelayi, has been stabbed to death by her 17-year-old niece, Wunmi Aduloju, in Akure, the capital of Ondo State.

This was contained in a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Ondo, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya.

She disclosed that the suspect had been undergoing psychiatric treatment before the tragic incident.

According to reports, medical records from a psychiatric hospital where Wunmi Aduloju had been under treatment confirmed her mental health status.

It was gathered that the deceased’s decomposing body was found a few days after the killing, leading to police involvement and the subsequent arrest of the niece.

According to the PPRO read, “The police took the remains to the mortuary, and during clean-up, a mark of violence (stabbing) was observed, while a knife was also found at the scene of the crime.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased lived with her niece, Omowunmi Aduloju, aged 17 years, who suddenly disappeared and locked the door.

“The stench oozing out of the house attracted the residents, who notified the deceased sister. The sister, on arrival, peered through the window and saw the body on the floor; hence, the police were informed. The corpse, in a decomposing state, was removed for preservation.”
