UPDATE:

BEFORE Lloyd Logan brutally attacked 37-year-old Kemba Olufemi on Monday, he greeted her with a smile and in a pleasant tone told her, “Good morning.” But he had deadly intentions.
The gun he tried to kill her with was hidden behind his back. When she refused to entertain a conversation about their stalled relationship, his tone changed and he pointed the gun at her. “I am here to kill you today,” Logan said.

Speaking from her hospital bed in San Fernando, Olufemi, a taxi driver from Macaulay Village in Claxton Bay, said she had arranged with Logan, 60, to meet at Tropical Plaza at Pointe-a-Pierre on Monday at 11 am. The mother of two said she never expected him to attack her.
“He started talking about his relationship with me and I was not prepared to listen to him. When the gun did not go off, he reached for the door of the car and pulled me out. He started beating me with the gun,” she said.

She had just dropped off a passenger in the carpark and was in the driver’s seat of her car when Logan attacked her. The ordeal, which was recorded, went viral on social media. He tried to shoot her, but the gun did not go off. Logan then beat her mercilessly with the butt. Olufemi said she fought for her life, but Logan continued attacking her until she became unconscious. The entire ordeal lasted just over four minutes, but felt like a lifetime. “He thought I was dead, so he walked away and decided to kill himself. But God is a good God and I am alive today because of his mercy. It wasn’t my time to die,” she said.

Thinking he had killed her, Logan took his own life by drinking poison in the carpark. Olufemi remains warded at San Fernando General Hospital in a stable condition after undergoing emergency surgery. She suffered serious injuries to her head, including a hairline skull fracture.
“It was due to divine intervention that I am alive. First the gun jammed and I was spared. After enduring all the beating, I was taken to the emergency room, where doctors operated on my head and today I am alive,” Olufemi said.

Yesterday she was listening to religious songs on her phone. Relatives and neighbours surrounded the bed and prayed for a speedy recovery. Olufemi told Newsday she met Logan, from Perseverance in Couva, four months ago and they started a relationship, but she decided to end it because of his aggressive behaviour.

“I would go to his place at times and he will come over to my house. After a couple of weeks, I noticed Lloyd becoming upset for trivial things. He would become angry and shout at me. We never lived together as a couple,” Olufemi said.
