The elder sister of Rofiat who was murdered for ritual purposes by her boyfriend and other three teenagers has narrated her last moment with the deceased.
Okeowo, the elder sister of Sofiat said, after putting a pot of beans on the fire in the evening, the deceased took permission from her to go out, to which she agreed.
She said she had no idea where she was going.
Okeowo said, “When it was around 8.30pm, I called her number and asked if she was coming home tonight. She answered saying she was already on her way and almost home. So, I went to bed.
“Around 10pm, I called her, only to discover that her number was no longer reachable. I asked her mother if she had seen her daughter, she said no. The following morning, I asked her mother again and she gave the same response.
“It was later in the day that I heard that a lady was killed and beheaded in the community. I was suspicious at that moment since I had not seen Rofiat.”
She said when she saw the viral video showing the suspects that beheaded the lady, she recognised one of them. This prompted her to carry a photo of the deceased to Adatan Police Station where the Divisional Police Officer told them that she had been murdered.
She said their mother who is suffering from hypertension has not been informed of the situation because they are afraid something might happen to her if she hears of it.
“If we tell her now and she dies, that will leave us with two dead bodies,” she said.
She said ever since they warned Rofiat’s boyfriend to stop seeing her, she had not laid eyes on him, adding that she “finds it surprising that he would be the one to kill her sister.”
On what she wants government to do for her, she said, “Government should ensure she’s avenged. Those that killed her should be killed as well. They should also be beheaded just as they did to her.”
