Police authorities in Lagos on Thursday arraigned 30-year-old Ibrahim Oniyide for the mother of Mrs. Taiwo Oniyide, his mother, before an Ebute Meta, Lagos Magistrate court.
The prosecution said that Oniyide, a resident of Olubunmi Christopher Street, off Arowolo Street, Abule Egba, Lagos, committed the crime with a knife and a shard of glass from a broken bottle with which he stabbed the victim all over her body.
It was reported that the suspect attacked his mother for refusing to take in an eight-months-pregnant woman whom he claimed was his fiancée.
The mother and son got into an argument over the propriety of Oniyide’s request. Mrs. Oniyide was said to have rejected the fiancée, remarking that her son should have brought the woman at the beginning of her pregnancy.
An enraged Oniyide grabbed the knife his mother was using to prepare a meal of yam and killed her with it, police said.
The suspect has been remanded in prison on the orders of Magistrate M.O. Okpe Agbe, who adjourned the case to April 11, 2016 as the court awaits advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
