The suspect was said to have confessed to the crime.

“In his statement, he averred that, his employer asked him to clean the house at about 9pm of 19th June, 2019 but an argument ensued between them, which prompted him to stab her with a knife. That the shock of her death made her aged mother to slum and died.
