Her cry however, attracted neighbours who invited operatives of the state security outfit codenamed Amotekun.
The suspect fled while the neighbours rushed the victim to the Police Clinic for treatment where she was rejected and referred to the University of Medical Sciences, Teaching Hospital, Akure.
The Executive Secretary of the State Agency Against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence(OSAA-GBV), Bola Joel-Ogundadegbe who confirmed the incident said she was informed of the incident by the Police and the agency quickly notified the First Lady, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, who immediately ordered that the victim be taken to a hospital and, consequently, settled the emergency bills.
”The victim was on oxygen in the Trauma centre Ondo and back to life, but yet to regain consciousness and strength to talk,”Joel-Ogundadegbe said
No one has been able to identify the boyfriend of the victim, although his neighbours said he is a footballer.
She added that Funmilola needs proper medical care and as such should be referred to the Federal Medical Centre for the service of a neurosurgeon, due to the deep wound on her head.
