The spate of ritual killings is not only affecting the young but also the old.

A 70-year-old grandmother, Medinat Ala, is the latest victim of these killings, as sources say ritualists removed her breasts and other sensitive parts after hitting her on the head with a pestle.

The incident took place at night at her home in Ikare-Akoko, the headquarters of Akoko Northeast Local Government Area of Ondo State, where the deceased was a petty trader who sold goods in front of her family house.

Another woman, who lived in the same house with the late Mrs Ala, who saw the suspected ritualists was also attacked and injured.

The remains of Mrs Ala were taken to the Specialist Hospital mortuary in Ikare Akoko.
