Two rams are currently under arrest in Ekiti State for attacking and injuring a 65-year-old woman popularly called ‘Iya Oyo.’

The suspects were said to have attacked Iya Oyo(pictured) on Monday at Okesa area of Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital while the 65-year-old was on her way to a bank with her son.

Reports have it that the rams belong to a manager of a filling station in the area and are known to be violent, attacking passers-by.

Iya Oyo who sustained multiple injuries from the attack was rushed by sympathizers to a traditional orthopaedic clinic.

According to her, “on the fateful day, I was going to the Union Bank with my son. We were walking on the walkway and saw the rams in front of us but not knowing what was on their mind. Immediately they sighted us coming, one of them rushed and hit me several times with its horns.

“Immediately, I fell but as I was struggling to get up, the second ram joined the first to attack me. Thank God that some people came and saved me from untimely death in the hands of these mad rams.”
