A 70-year-old woman, identified as Betsy Egbeobamwonyi, was killed by suspected assassins this morning, June 22nd. The woman was found with a slit throat and many stab wounds at her one room apartment at Oseye Street, off Upper Sokponba Road, Benin City, Edo state. According to The Nation, the suspected assassins left the woman in the pool of her blood after they committed the crime.
Daughter of the deceased, Dorothy, says she and her other siblings cannot find any motive behind the killing of their mother. “We don’t know who killed our mother. We don’t know who she offended. She is the landlady of the house. The day before she was killed, I bought things for her only to be told that she was killed the next day,” she said.
