The people of Alaja community in Moniya, Ibadan, Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo state came under attack by unknown assailants this morning (Monday) leaving two women seriously injured.
According to eye witness, the assailants stormed the community around 10.00am, macheting a woman, Mrs. Adeola Bamidele, 45 and her daughter, Dolapo Bamidele, 23.
Prompt News gathered that the hoodlums who came into the house through the roof thereafter, made away with their victims’ two mobile phones.
According to Mrs Bamidele, she was matcheted because she tried to rescue her daughter, Dolapo who was being about to be raped.
Meanwhile, the young lady, Dolapo could not respond to questions because of serious injury she sustained.
Prompt News however, learnt that neighbours helped the two women to the hospital while the incident has been reported at Moniya Police station.
Prompt News reports that many communities have been attacked lately in Akinyele local government.
It is believed that the assailants are ritualists who rape and kill their victims. Residents have been calling on Governor @Seyiamakinde to act fast.
Recall that a couple of months ago, a female student, Barakat, was raped and killed in her parent’s house in Moniya, Akinyele LGA.
As at press time, the PPRO of Oyo state Police Command could not be reached for comment.
