She said , “ I heard a male voice in the background and I angrily ended the call after inquiring about the male voice.
“ The male voice was strange to me , I got angry and asked , ‘‘ What is a man doing in your room at such late hour ?’ I didn ’ t wait for an answer before ending the call . That was the last I heard from her until we learnt the following morning that she had been stabbed in the neck . ”
A family friend , Daniel Oluwadare , said , “ She made efforts to respond when asked questions; she was able to say that she was attacked by one Odunayo, but we could not decipher the other name she mentioned. ”
