The man who hacked his mother to death in Uzzeba, Owan West LGA of Edo State on Friday, April 8th, has been identified as 36-year-old Segun Odihiri. See previous post: here.
According to Daily Trust, the suspect beheaded his 83-year-old mother, Maria Odihiri, for alerting the public while he was trying to rape his own daughter.
It was gathered that the deceased raised an alarm and started screaming when she caught her son in the act. A witness Mr Ekemeiren Ojekhugbo said he always threatened to kill her anytime they had a disagreement.
“For him to cover his shame, he picked up a cutlass and cut off his mother’s head while the daughter ran for safety.” said Mr Ojekhugbo.
According to Mr Ojekhugbo, Segun earlier hid the body of the woman but was caught while attempting to dispose of it.
He was later taken to the Owan West Divisional Police Command in Sabongida Ora.
