Following the killing of a 54-year-old civil servant, Mrs Funmilayo Adelayi, by her 17-year-old niece, Wunmi Aduloju, in Akure, Ondo State capital, the Ondo Police Command has disclosed that the suspect had mental issues.

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, stated that the medical records from the psychiatric hospital where the suspect had been receiving treatment confirmed her health status.

Wunmi stabbed the deceased in her three-bedroom bungalow along Superjet Road, Premier Estate, off Oda Road, Akure South Local Council Area of the state, with the decomposing body discovered a few days later.

The PPRO stated that the suspect, who had since been arrested, had been taken to police medical facility for safekeeping to avoid injury to herself and others.

She said: “The police took the remains to the mortuary, and during clean-up, a mark of violence (stabbing) was observed, while a knife was also found at the scene of the crime.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased lived with her niece, Omowunmi Aduloju, aged 17 years, who suddenly disappeared and locked the door.

“The stench oozing out of the house attracted the residents, who notified the deceased sister. The sister, on arrival, peered through the window and saw the body on the floor; hence, the police were informed. The corpse, in a decomposing state, was removed for preservation.”
