Mrs Gladys Osaigbovo-Omon, 60 years old and pictured below, narrowly escaped being assassinated at her residence in Benin-City, the Edo State Capital, a fortnight ago.
Yesterday, she was at the Lagos State Police Command headquarters, Ikeja, to see her suspected assasins get paraded.
Clad in a buba and wrapper and a pair of red slippers, she sat on a chair, hands clasped together as she kept shaking her legs slowly. At a point, she glanced at the two suspected assassins close to her, shook her head in disbelief before lifting it up to the sky and muttered, Osalobua uwese( meaning ‘God, thank you’, in Benin dialect).
Vanguard reports that when Mrs Gladys Osaigbovo-Omon was approached, she was too stunned to narrate what brought her from Benin city. All she could mutter in pidgin English was that the stab of a loved one could be so painful when compared to that of a stranger.
