A 30-year-old man, Ibrahim Oniyide has been remanded in prison for allegedly stabbing his mother to death. According to the police, Ibrahim killed his mother, identified as Tawa Oniyide by stabbing her with a kitchen knife and broken bottle all over her body. It was gathered that the suspect on the fateful day, had gone to introduce a woman to his mother as his future wife, demanding that she accommodate her. The police said the deceased disagreed with her son on the issue, refusing to take the eight months old pregnant woman in, adding that she was not interested in her and that the suspect should have brought the woman when the pregnancy was still in the early stage.
The police also added that Ibrahim, who thought that his mother was wrong and should have taken the pregnant woman in, got angry. The deceased was in the kitchen with a knife and yam which she was preparing to cook when the suspect allegedly grabbed the knife and stabbed her in different parts making sure that she was dead. The incident happened at 3, Olubunmi Christopher Street, off Arowolo Street, Abule Egba.
Ibrahim was charged before an Ebutte Magistrates’ Court for murder and has since been remanded in the Ikoyi Prisons.
The Magistrate, Miss M.O. Okpe Agbe, adjourned the matter till April 11 for the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) advice.
