It was gathered that the late woman lived alone in Benue while her husband resides in Lagos. A witness was quoted to have said: “It was when the younger Aghanya got there that he had to break the door to enter the house because he saw her car parked outside. On getting inside, he met Mama Aghanya in the pool of her blood already dead. She was macheted on the head severally by her attackers.”
