You may wish to know that an Italian firm has offered to sponsor Folakemi who has regained consciousness, overseas for proper medical treatment and rehabilitation.
The two bad guys who almost killed Folakemi, identified as:
Ebi Jatto and Weriye Aluwa, who are currently in police custody, it was learnt, were nabbed 72 hours after the attack through the support of the Obunagha community youths.
Miss Akinbode was attacked with a machete for reportedly refusing to hand over unspecified amount of money in her possession while returning from work that fateful, Monday.
It was reliably gathered that the suspects were arrested at Koroama community about two kilometres from the scene of crime while attempting to sell the mobile phone of their victim.
A security source told Vanguard that the suspects had confessed to the crime and claimed that she struggled with them in their attempt to snatch her bag.
The corps member, it would be recalled, was attacked at about 8.30pm while returning to the lodge near the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, Okolobori, her place of primary assignment.
Miss Akinbode, 26, a graduate Nurse of Madonna University was reported to have been in charge of huge amount of money used by the hospital to pay blood donors at the blood bank section of the hospital.
The arrested suspects, according to a security source, were present during the payment made to the blood donors by the corps member.
According to the security source, “they claimed that all they wanted from her was the remaining money she kept in her bag after the payments in the afternoon. But that when she struggled and identified one of them, she was attacked with machete.”
Victim for overseas treatment
An unnamed Italian firm, it was learnt, is making frantic effort to fly the victim overseas for treatment.
“We are optimistic that the problem would be sorted out on Monday after the Sallah holidays to enable her travel overseas for proper medical attention and rehabilitation.”
