Punch reports that the deceased, Maria Odihiri, was killed when she attempted to alert the public of her son's attempt to rape his own daughter.

An eyewitness, Ekemeiren Ojekhugbo, said Odihiri was apprehended during his attempt to dispose of the body of his late mother.

Ojekhugbo added that the suspect was fond of threatening to take his mother's life whenever there was a misunderstanding between them.

According to the reports, Odihiri was arrested by youths and vigilantes and was taken to the Owan West Divisional Police Station in Sabongidda Ora.

Ojekhugbo said, “Trouble started when Segun was about sleeping with his own daughter and his late mother caught him in the act and started screaming. In order to cover his shame, he took up a cutlass and cut off his mother’s head while the daughter ran for safety.

“Segun was caught by some youths who were not also spared as he injured two of them before he was eventually apprehended by the vigilante members.”

May the soul of the deceased rest in peace.
