Fingers of a former Ekiti Commissioner’s husband was chopped off by assassins, who invaded her residence located in Ijesa Isu.
Mrs Funke Owoseeni, the former Commissioner of Women Affairs during the first tenure of Governor Kayode Fayemi in Ekiti State narrowly escaped being killed by the assassins who stormed her house at about 8.30pm and turned off the generating set outside, throwing the well- lit environment into total blackout.
The fingers of the Commissioner’s husband was chopped off by the assassins, in the attack Funke believes is politically motivated. Narrating how she escaped the incident in which two students living in the building were also attacked with cutlass and iron rod, she said;
“I was able to see them and I had to rush back inside and hid myself somewhere. They brought my husband inside and started asking, where is your wife? We are here for her and not you. .
When he didn’t give them where I was, they started macheting him with dangerous weapons and they did that until they chopped up his fingers and they fled when they saw that he had passed out”, she said.
