A 67-year-old widow Mrs Rachael Olaniyan has currently left her home on Olowu street, Ipaja, Lagos state, over alleged assault by her son, Kehinde and his wife.
Punch reports that Rachael, who revealed to them that she is critically ill, was beaten by her son’s wife Shade while her son stole her documents, sometimes in March.
She added that all efforts for her to report the case to the police proved abortive because her son was a riot policeman. Rachael recount as she seeks refuge in a church saying:
“On Tuesday, March 21, 2017, I opened the door to my apartment in order to go out when Shade attacked me by pouring watery pepper into my eyes. As soon as I fell, she started hitting me with a plank until I became unconscious. When I woke up, I used the little strength in me to go to the neighboring house to show my swollen face to some community leaders. When I returned home, Shade’s husband, Kehinde, had returned home and when I showed him what his wife had done, he started laughing at me. By Saturday, March 25, I went out to see the community leaders again to report to them. However, before I could return, Kehinde had burgled my room and stolen the documents of my house. When I challenged him, he laughed at me. I collapsed on March 27, 2017, and was rushed to a hospital. I have spent a lot of money and my health has worsened as a result of the attack I suffered from Kehinde’s wife and the tenant, who is also the wife of a policeman.”
NAIJ.com gathered that this elderly went to report to the police but both husband and wife were released shortly afterwards and told to write an undertaking. However, Rachael begged the police to help her so the culprits can face the wrath of the law.
