71-Year-Old Woman Murdered By A 14-Year-Old Girl In Edo State

The Edo State Police Command has arrested a 14-year old girl identified as Anna Amos, over the murder of a 71-year old woman, Mrs. Helen Adodo, which occurred on Tuesday. The deceased was said to have died on Tuesday, after her head was smashed with a stone by unknown persons who allegedly sneaked into her residence on Guobadia Street, in Benin, at about 7am.

It was gathered that Anna had been living with the septuagenarian as her househelp since March, 2018, before the incident. The assailants, it was learnt, blindfolded the teenage suspect before killing the septuagenarian.

The incident attracted residents and sympathisers, some of whom wailed as they saw the lifeless body of the victim.

A man who is suspected to be the son of the deceased, expressed shock over his mother’s death. He said that his mother did not have disagreement with anyone in the neighbourhood.

“She was just a peaceful woman. She was just an old woman; so, I was surprised to see her in a pool of blood,” he stated.

The police are working to unravel the actual killer of the deceased, following an alleged confession by the teenager claiming responsibility for the death of the woman.

A clip obtained by journalists on Wednesday showed the teenager confessing to the crime in the presence of some residents in the area.

She also claimed that she did not know the number of time the deceased was hit with the stone as she did not know what came over her.

She explained, “When I took some plates outside, I took a broom and swept outside. I stood on the stone and looked up and down.

“When I did that, something entered my body. I stood on the stone again and looked up and down.

“I took the stone to the veranda and sat on it. Later, I entered the room and did not know when I hit her head with the stone.

“I do not know what entered my body. It was a spirit. It told me to go and kill her. She did not offend me.”

The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Chidi Nwabuzor, stated that the Command received a distress call over the matter at about 8:30 am.

Nwabuzor also disclosed that the case had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
