Earlier this month, we reported the story of a 20-year old model, Ajila Oluwaseun Motunrayo, who was raped and murdered in Akure, Ondo state.
A journalist, Ewatomilola tweeted the sad news, calling on people for help.
“Ajila Seun fionna was raped & stabbed to death yesterday around Sunday bus stop in Ijoka, Akure” Ewatomilola tweeted, and a hashtag #JusticeForAjila trended, as people bared their thoughts on the rate of rape in the country.
More details have emerged about into her death as Vanguard reports how Seun was killed in her mother’s home.
According to the theory police investigators are working with, Seun’s killer was said to have entered her flat through the back door that was unlocked when her mother left the house or he was let into the apartment by Seun as she prepared to eat a plate of noodles, which was found on the table in her apartment.
While struggling with her killer, Seun was reportedly stabbed with a kitchen knife on her neck, abdomen and close to her private part. Not even her blood stained menstrual pad discouraged the killer from raping her before killing her to cover his tracks.
Meanwhile, Seun’s mother, Yemisi Ajayi, who is demanding for justice, has pointed accusing fingers at her daughter’s boyfriend, 22-year old Adejimola Ebenezer.
Seun and Ebenezer’s family have been friends for over seven years and their children started dating in January but started having problems in June when Seun declined Ebenezer’s sexual demands.
Seun was reportedly a virgin and wanted to remain so until marriage. At a point, Seun’s mother had to intervene, telling Ebenezer to allow her daughter be until they get married for sex to happen.
Seun was also reportedly ready to let go of the relationship as she was scared that her boyfriend may have joined a gang of online fraudsters. The couple parted ways for a while but reunited again as he promised to wait until they get married befor sex.
On the day of the sad incidence, Seun’s mother said Ebenezer called her twice asking where she (the mother) was. Policemen working on the case also said, on the day of the incidence, Ebenezer called one of his friends to inform him that Seun was dead.
According to her, it may be that Ebenezer wanted to know whether she was not at home in order for him to carry out the evil act. By the time Seun’s mother got back from work on the day, she met her daughter’s lifeless body on the floor of her apartment in the pool of her blood with different wounds on her body.
Vanguard reported that the knife with which the victim was stabbed, a blood stained underwear and a menstrual pad were discovered under the mattress inside the room where her body was found by her mother.
While Ebenezer denies being involved in Seun’s death, he confessed that some of his friends were fraudsters.
The Ondo state police said they have commenced investigation into the incident and the perpetrator(s) will be brought to book.
