Abuja lady, Onise Ismail, popularly known as Ize, has been brutally murdered by an unknown assailant at her residence in Citec Estate, Mbora, Jabi bypass, Abuja one week after she sacked her gateman and driver.
The deceased, who was living alone, was reportedly stabbed several times in her chest and in the neck by her attacker until she died.
The ugly incident happened on May 14, 2018 when the woman, in her late 20’s, walked out of the house to put on her generator due to power outage.
Her killer reportedly struck in the night when he knew she would be alone in the house.
A family source, who did not want his name in print, told the Punch that after stabbing her to death, the assailant dumped her body in her room and turned the house upside down for valuables before fleeing.
“We learnt that a neighbour heard her pleading with her assailant not to kill her, but he (the neighbour) was too scared to intervene. By the time he went to check on her, she had given up the ghost and her assailant had fled. The yard and the room was soaked with the blood of the deceased,” the source said.
The lady was buried on Sunday by her family and friends at the Abuja cemetery.
The Police, it was gathered, had commenced investigation into her murder and some suspects had also been arrested.
