YENAGOA — A 26-year-old National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, member serving in Bayelsa State, Miss Folakemi Akinbode, is now struggling for her life at the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital, Okolobiri, following a brutal attack from suspected cultists.

The incident occurred, Monday, at about 8.30pm at Obunagha community in the Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.

Miss Akinbode, an indigene of Ondo State, a graduate Nurse of the Madonna University serving at NDU Teaching Hospital was returning from work when she was ambushed by two suspected cultists along a lonely bush path leading to the corpers’ lodge where she resides.

Her right hand was almost chopped off by her assailants who are now at large.

It was learnt that but for the hand she raised to defend herself the attackers could have killed her as the machete was aimed at her head.

The victim was said to have ran to the lodge with her injuries shouting “help, help, help…” after which she collapsed and lost consciousness due to excessive bleeding from the almost severed hand.

A source told our correspondent that “though she had been given three pints of blood, she is yet to regain consciousness.”

Troubled by the development, the traditional ruler of the community, Chief Apoh Godgive, the Ibolou XI, was said to have ordered the immediate setting up of vigilante group  in the community with a view to fishing out the perpetrators of the crime.

Contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer,  DSP Alex Akhigbe, confirmed the incident, saying the command has launched manhunt for the fleeing attackers.
