A woman, Sefiat Useni, who lived at Oketoro area of Iyin-Ekiti in Irepodun/Ifelodun local government area of Ekiti State, was gruesomely murdered in her room in a mysterious circumstance at midnight on Wednesday, which has sparked protests.
It was learnt that the deceased, a ‘ponmo’ seller who lived alone, was hit on the head with a pestle and she died on her bed. It was further revealed that her body and the room where she was murdered were drenched with blood as a result of the severe head injury she sustained.
The death caused violent protest on Wednesday at Iyin, as Ebira people and the deceased kinsmen demanded that a man arrested in connection with the murder should be handed over to them for possible jungle justice.
The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti command, Mr. Sunday Abutu, said the cause of the death is being thoroughly investigated. “We have arrested a suspect in respect of this murder and he is being detained at the CID section,” he said.
