After about three days of being declared missing in Ilesa, Osun State, a 65-year-old woman, Tunmise Oluyemi, has been murdered by assailants suspected to be ritualists.
Osun State Police Command, on Tuesday, said the corpse of the woman was found on her farm land with one of her eyes plucked.
It was gathered that the family of the victim had launched a search for her when she got missing last weekend before her corpse was found on her farm on Monday.
In a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola in Osogbo, it was explained that daughter of the deceased reported the discovery of her mother’s corpse to the police.
Opalola said, “At about 1.00p.m on Monday, one Dare Oluyemi of Odundun Area Ilesa reported that her mother, Oluyemi Tunmise, 65, who the family had been searching for since Saturday, had been found dead.
“She said her mother was found dead with one of her eyes removed by yet to be identified assailants on her farm at Fadahunsi Area of Ilesa, at about 11:30a.m on Monday.”
The PPRO said the police had visited the scene of the crime and had taken photographs.
She disclosed that the complainant that reported the incident and the other children of the deceased, however, refused the police to take the body of their mother to the mortuary or carryout further investigation.
She said they threatened to unleash violence and that they wished to bury the corpse.
