A 42-year-old woman, Olusayo Fagbemi, has been reportedly murdered in the early hours of Wednesday by unknown assailants at Sasa community in the Akinyele Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Fagbemi was reported to have been killed while washing plates in front of her house around 5:40am.
It was learnt that her neighbours were attracted to the scene by Fagbemi’s cry for help.
