A resident of Ibafo in the Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State, Mrs. Rosemary Obidinma, who was reported missing in early November has been found dead.
Punch reports that the mother of five was declared missing after she did not return from her shop at Apapa, Lagos, on November 2. Her son identified as Daniel is said to have spoken to her last around 10pm.
When Daniel and his siblings called her phone, a man who picked up the call warned them to stop disturbing him, saying he was in Delta State. A report was immediately filed at the Ketu Police Station. Last Friday, November 12, an officer from the police division called him and his uncle, Emmanuel Iffi, to come and identify the corpse of a victim of a one-chance robbery.
One-chance is popular in Lagos, where commuters are robbed by hoodlums who drive commercial vehicles usually filled with their gang members who pretend to be passengers.
“He (DPO) said the police had been trying to locate the family members of the corpse without success and the moment he showed us the picture of the corpse, it was my mother.
We learnt from the police that she was stabbed by one-chance robbers and she bled to death.
Her body is still in a mortuary, but by Tuesday this week, we will take the body to our village for burial.”
