The 55-year-old wife of a pastor in Akure, Mrs. Eunice Ajayi, has been hacked to death following her resistance to being raped.

The dastardly act was allegedly carried out by a 25-year-old cultist and University drop-out identified as Jerry. The husband of the deceased also received some machete wounds as he attempted to save his wife.

Vanguard reports:

The suspected killer was said to have been rusticated from two institutions in the state for being a member of a secret cult.

Saturday Vanguard gathered that the deceased was hacked to death on the ill fated day when she refused to be raped by the suspect who is now on the run.

The deceased husband who rushed to the scene to save his dying wife was also machetted by the suspect and is presently hospitalised.

Eyewitness account informed Vanguard that alleged killer visited the house of the Pastor  located at Peace-land Road,along the Expressway in  Akure metropolis  and attempted to rape the deceased.

Jerry who has been eyeing the woman reportedly came that day with the sole purpose of having his way but the Pastor’s wife resisted.

This according to report infuriated the suspect who reportedly  brought out a machete which he used to hack the deceased .

Several machete cuts were inflicted on  the deceased by the furious killer.

Her distress cries  and shout for help attracted the husband who rushed to the room only to meet his wife in her own pool of blood.

The husband was also attacked by the suspect while trying to save the wife from the killer.

After attacking both the wife and the husband the suspect reportedly took to his heels while attempt by some students residing in the area to apprehend him failed.

The wife of the pastor was said to have died before help could come neighbours who rushed to the scene following the shout and cries from the couple.

Contacted the Police image maker Wole Ogodo said that the suspect is still on the run and that he would soon be tracked down and prosecuted.

Ogodo said that “ we discovered that the suspect attempted to rape the deceased because her pant was half-removed by the suspect, later our men visited the house of Jerry but he has fled.

“Investigation has commenced on the matter and we have put all necessary machinery in place  to apprehend him and bring him to justice.”

Ogodo said that the remains of the deceased had been deposited at the mortuary of the State Specialists Hospital in Akure.


  1. With what has been happening in the country lately – gang rapes, murder of rape victims, etc I have a question; is Yorubaland / the Western part of the country becoming the new India? I think its time the Yoruba leaders have a real discussion on this. Its also time for the IG to look into this and stamp it out, or he resigns. So many rapes and murders of women!!! Seriously, if the current IG cannot deal with this then he should leave the role and let someone who will look into stopping these rapes take over the job. Women matter.
