“The neighbour was living in the house with the late Medinat Ala; she woke up when she heard strange voices in the deceased’s room; and as she was trying to go into the room, one of the ritualists hit her with a pestle on the head. She has been rushed to the hospital. “
The Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Femi Joseph, said the killing was perfectly done because the assailants opened the door to the deceased’s room and after the dastardly act; they closed the door and left the house.
