Joy Afekafe who was paraded at Bosso Police Station earlier on Tuesday, confessed of killing late Dr Mrs Adefolalu Fumilayo who was a FUTMINNA lecturer. 

A shocking incident of culpable homicide involving Dr. Mrs. Funmilola Adefolalu, a lecturer at the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, unfolded on the 29th of October, 2023. Friends and church members of the deceased made a harrowing discovery at her residence in the Gbaiko Area of Minna.

Dr. Funmilola's absence and the inability to reach her by phone raised concerns among her visitors. Upon their arrival at her residence, they were met with a gruesome sight. Dr. Funmilola Adefolalu lay lifeless in a pool of blood, bearing visible injuries on her body.

In response, the police dispatched operatives from the Bosso Division to investigate the situation. The grim discovery at the crime scene included two knives with bloodstains, suspected to be the weapons used in the attack. Dr. Adefolalu's remains were transferred to IBB Hospital in Minna, where she was officially pronounced deceased.

During the interrogation, the suspect made a chilling confession. She revealed that she had worked as Dr. Funmilola Adefolalu's housemaid for approximately three weeks but was terminated from her position due to misconduct. Following her dismissal, Joy Afekafe sought help from her classmates, identified as Walex and Smart.

Together, they conspired to attack the lecturer at her residence. On the 28th of October, 2023, at around 4:00 p.m., they approached the house on a motorcycle. Joy Afekafe arrived at the gate, gaining entrance after Dr. Adefolalu opened it. Subsequently, Walex and Smart entered the residence.

The prime suspect, Joy Afekafe, will be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for further investigation and due prosecution. The police are currently intensifying their efforts to apprehend the remaining suspects who remain at large.
