The Edo State Police Command has paraded 18-year-old boy who confessed of killing his mother for money rituals.
The suspect by name, Samuel Akpobome, who hails from Oghara in Delta State, said he work in a pure water firm.
He said he committed the act after a ritualist promised to give him N50,000 if he can bring his mother’s ears and fingers.
Speaking to newsmen after he was paraded by the police, Samuel said, “My father is dead. I am 18 years old.
“It was one man called ‘One Love’ that told me to use my mother for money ritual. He promised to give me N50,000 if I killed my mother and sleep with her. He said I should cut my mother’s ear and fingers and bring them to him.
“The One Love sells drugs. He put something inside the drink he gave and told me to go and kill my mother.
“I wanted to cut the ears and fingers before the people came in. I slept with my mother only once.
“The day I went to his house with policemen, the man has ran away. I hail from Oghara and work in a pure water factory.
“I now feel very bad because I was beaten badly by people. But I only did what the ritualist told me.”
The Police Commissioner, Babatunde Kokumo, said the suspect would be charged to court.
