A wicked son who want to get rich quick, has taken the laws into his hands and behead his step mother for rituals in a Benue state community. What a wicked world we live in.
A settlement in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue State, Obaganya, was gripped with tragedy during the weekend after a man identified as Echeno Adakole, beheaded his 50-year-old step-mother, Titi Enokela, for alleged ritual purposes.
According to reports, the suspect allegedly trailed his victim to the farm and cut off her head and thereafter wrapped it with the dead woman’s cloth and put it in a polyethylene bag.
According to a source, “Family members noticed that the woman had not returned from the farm and it was getting dark. Her children and other family members went looking for her; they found her headless body tucked away in a corner of the family farm.
“They all raced back home wailing and crying for help, only to discover the severed head of the woman with her step-son, who was acting strange and making moves to flee from home.”
It was gathered that a quick intervention of the police saved the suspect from being stoned to death by angry mob. A source who hinted it to Vanguard said, “As a result of tension in the community, the Police Area Command hurriedly moved the suspect out of the area to the State Command Headquarters in Makurdi.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Moses Yamu, who confirmed the ugly incident, told correspondents that the suspect was currently in custody of the state CID.
