The family of an ex-permanent secretary in Ogun State, Adefemi Egbeoluwa, and his wife, Oluwafunmilayo, have been grieving after their lifeless bodies were found at their residence around Allen Avenue, in the Ikeja area of Lagos State.
News gathered that the couple were at home with their domestic worker on the day of the governorship and state House of Assembly elections when some yet-to-be-identified persons invaded the premises and killed the couple.
After perpetrating the crime, the suspects reportedly attacked the domestic worker, beat her till she lost consciousness, and fled.
Following the attack, it was learnt that neighbours who got wind of the information, while lamenting over the events that claimed the lives of the aged couple during the invasion of their residence, rushed to the premises to ascertain the condition of the victims.
Some other neighbours were said to have visited the nearest police station to report the case for investigation.
A source who confirmed the development to our correspondent said the police, upon getting to the premises, saw the couple’s corpses and the injured domestic worker lying unconscious on the ground, adding that the couple’s yet-to-be-identified son also reported the incident to the police.
In a bid to rescue the housemaid, the source said she was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital where she had been placed on admission.
“The housemaid was taken to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, where she is currently receiving treatment. We learnt that the police found a machete, plank of wood, one nose mask, a touch light, and one ID card at the victims’ residence.”
