Man Apprehended By Police For Stabbing Mother To Death

Operatives of Delta State Police Command have arrested a 23-year-old man for stabbing his aged mother to death in Obiaruku, Delta State.

The mother, who was in her 50s, had cautioned the suspect, simply identified as Samson, when she saw him smoking early in the morning

Her objection that it was too early for him to be smoking was said to have enraged Samson, who in anger, stabbed her with a knife.

Samson’s elder brother, a sickle cell patient, was said to have shouted, which attracted people into the compound where they saw the body of the deceased in a pool of blood.

In a video posted on X by a user identified as Ose, Samson was captured with the knife he allegedly used to kill his mother.

Close relatives disclosed that the family resides on Jehovah Street, Obiedike, Obiaruku and that Samson was initially relocated to Asaba, the capital of Delta State, to learn a trade after completing secondary school.

However, he was brought back a few months later after associating with a group of young friends who introduced him to drugs that affected his mental health.

He was subsequently brought back to Obiaruku and his mother took him to a traditional mental health facility for treatment.

Delta State Police Command Public Relations Officer, SP Bright Edafe, confirmed the crime and Samson’s arrest by the police.
