Two rams have been arrested by the Police in
Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, for attacking
and injuring a 65-year-old woman popularly
called ‘Iya Oyo’.
Narrating her ordeal, Iya Oyo said she was on
her way to a commercial bank in Okesa area
with her son on Monday to withdraw some
money when one of the rams reportedly owned
by a manager of a filling station in the area,
went berserk and gored her, fracturing her right
thigh.
The victim, who was writhing in pains at a
traditional orthopedic clinic where she was
rushed to by sympathisers, said that she fell
immediately after the attack and became
unconscious only to find herself at the clinic
where she regained consciousness.
According to her, “on the fateful day, I was
going to the Union Bank with my son.
We were walking on the walkway and saw the
rams in front of us but not knowing what was
on their mind.
Immediately they sighted us coming, one of
them rushed and hit me several times with its
horns.
Immediately, I fell but as I was struggling to
get up, the second ram joined the first to
attack me.
Thank God that some people came and saved
me from untimely death in the hands of these
‘mad rams'”.
Residents of the town, who pleaded
anonymity, described the rams as “too
notorious and always ready to attack people at
sight”.
“We have complained several times to the
owner of the rams to tame them but to no avail.
The animals are always roaming the streets and
daring people”, they said.
It was learnt that the owner of the rams has
since gone into hiding since the attack took
place without offering any form of assistance
to the victim.
The director of the trado-medical centre, Chief
Ezekiel Ogunjemilusi, said Iya Oyo was
brought to his clinic with fractures on two
sides of her right leg noting that the injury
will take few weeks to heal.
Though there was no official statement on the
incident, a highly placed police officer at the
Area command confirmed the attack.
