Son Kills Mother, Sleeps With Her Corpse

Samuel Akpobome, 18-years old boy who was arrested by the police in Edo State for allegedly killing his mother for money rituals has made a shocking confession…

“I wanted to use my mother for money rituals. I strangled her; she was sleeping when I strangled her at about 5am. I was advised by a native doctor in Oghara to kill her. After killing her, I slept with her. The native doctor told me to do so and keep her corpse for two days.”

“The native doctor told me to kill my mother and sleep with her corpse. But he did not tell me the number of days to sleep with her. My mother did not offend me. I killed her because of money.”

“I could not find a place to keep the corpse. As I was about coming out, I did not know that my grandmother was sitting outside. When I opened the door, my grandmother sighted the corpse inside the room and raised the alarm that drew the attention of neighbours.”
