UNIBEN undergraduate who slaughtered mother did so over money spat

The suspect who is a final year student of the University of Benin stabbed his mother with a broken soda bottle.

Igbineweka was locked in her house alone with the 22-year-old youth who gored her with a broken bottle.

Help came from her neighbours but it appeared too late as she had lost a large amount of blood before their arrival according to Punch News who reported that most residents abandoned the compound following the tragedy.

They were described to have been shocked by the incident which had been garnering momentum an evening before the murder.

Obasogie was soon arrested by the police officers from the Textile Mill detachment. This was confirmed by Mr. Moses Nkombe, the Edo Police Public Relation Officer who revealed that a fact-finding mission has been launched to gather more details.
