A student of Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, Oluwaseun Ajila was on Thursday evening reportedly killed by unknown persons in Ijoka area of Akure, the Ondo State capital.
It was gathered that the 20-year-old who was also a model was allegedly raped by her assailants in her mother’s house before she was murdered.
According to reports, the lifeless body of Oluwaseun who is also known as Fiona among her peers was found by her mother, Mrs. Yemisi Ajayi who raised the alarm after returning from work.
One of the residents of Sunday Bustop, Ijoka road, Akure where the incident happened, stated that Oluwaseun is the only daughter of her mother who was set to attend her convocation coming up next week Wednesday at Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo.
The source who preferred anonymity said the mother of the deceased returned from work and met her daughter’s lifeless body on the floor in the pool of her blood.
“There were wounds on her body which indicated that someone must have fought with her inside the room and stabbed her to death.”
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Ondo State Command, Femi Joseph, said the late girl’s mother reported the matter to the police.
He said: “The bereaved mother suspected her daughter’s boyfriend, because he had a misunderstanding with the girl recently.”
He added that investigation had commenced on the incident and that perpetrators would be brought to book.
The police have since arrested Oluwaseun’s boyfriend, Ebenezer Adedimola, over the incident.
