Mother And Son Allegedly Slit Husband’s Throat, And Then Made The Murder Look Like Suicide

A 49-year-old woman, Grace Bassey and her 30-year-old son, Benjamin Otu were arraigned before the Ebute Meta Chief Magistrate’s Court on a two-count charge of conspiracy and murder of 49-year-old Pastor, Lucky Bassey. Vanguard reports that Pastor Bassey’s throat was slit and the murder made to look like suicide by his wife and son. The prosecutor, Inspector Julius Babatope, narrated the incident which reportedly happened on January 25 and said it contravened Sections 221 and 231 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

However, the magistrate, Mrs H. O. Omisore, did not take the plea as the court lacked the jurisdiction to handle such a case, which requires lifetime in jail when found guilty. But she directed the police to continue whiletheir investigation, while a copy of the file should be forwarded to the office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, DPP, for legal advice.

Meanwhile, the accused, Grace and her son Benjamin, were remanded in the Ikoyi Prisons, pending when the court gets legal advice from DPP’s office.
