Teenage student stabs Ondo female civil servant to death

A 17-year-old Secondary School student, identified as Wunmi, has reportedly stabbed her 54-year-old foster mother, Mrs. Funmilayo Adelayi, to death in Oda town, Akure, Ondo State capital.

Nigeriacrime.com gathered that the victim, a senior civil servant, lived alone with the suspect in a three-bedroom bungalow on Superjet Road, Premier Estate, off Oda Road in the state.

A source said that the suspect, already in police custody, was alleged to have mental challenges but had undergone treatment before the ugly incident.

It was gathered that the suspect, who was in SSS2 had to be withdrawn from school at a time when her mental challenge became more pronounced.

She was later said to have been enrolled in a private school where she continued her education until she murdered the victim.

A neighbour told newsmen that “She was advised to take the girl to her parents because of the issue, but she refused perhaps because she felt the treatment she gave her would be enough.

“How can one be living with a person with a mental problem, that is the problem.”

Contacted, the police image maker, Funmi Odunlami, confirmed the murder of the civil servant.

Odunlami said that police detectives were investigating the motivation behind the murder by the foster child.
