In a bid to get quick wealth, a 21-year-old boy has allegedly killed his mother and had multiple sex with her corpse in Edo State.
The abhorrent incident occurred in their apartment at 8B Market road, Ologbo in Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of Edo State on Monday, October 29, this year.
The suspect, Samuel Emobor Oghenekporboro, reportedly strangled his 58-year-old mother, Mrs Christiana Ighoyivwi, and had sex with her dead body with the expectation that money would gush out in the process.
The victim’s mother, Mrs Maria Gabriel, reportedly discovered the bizarre incident when she went to her daughter’s residence about 6:00 a.m. to invite her to a nearby church for Morning Prayers.
The aged woman was said to have knocked repeatedly on her daughter’s door without getting any response.
This prompted her to peep through an opening in the window when she saw the lifeless body of her daughter and raised alarm.
Consequently, the son, Samuel, was said to have speedily opened the door and attempted to escape but was apprehended by neighbours who handed him over to the police at Ologbo.
Police detectives recovered semen-stained pants belonging to the suspect and his late mother from the room as exhibits.
Confirming the incident, spokesperson for the Edo State Police Command, Chidi Nwabuzor, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said investigation was ongoing, adding that the suspect would be arraigned soon.
