A 55-year-old woman said to be mentally ill has reportedly attacked her neighbours in Osun with a machete, killing two and leaving a third with wounds.
The attack took place in the Ita Balogun area of Ilesha, and the victims were said to be aged persons.
The suspect was identified as Esther Adu.
An eyewitness said, “We heard Pa Olaleye shouting for help and discovered that Esther had already killed two aged men in their separates rooms. She was attacking Pa Olaleye when youths rescued him and disarmed her.
“She has been living in the same house but a separate room with the victims and she had not been mentally stable for a while now. This incident is surprising.”
Police spokesperson Yemisi Opalola identified the deceased as Ojuolape Olojo, 90, and Sunday Samson, 70.
