A 30-year-old man, Ibrahim Oniyide, who allegedly stabbed his mother to death at 3, Olubunmi Christopher Drive, off Arowolo Street, Abule Egba area of Lagos state, has been remanded in prison.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Maria Dauda, told the court that Ibrahim killed his mother, Tawa Oniyide, by stabbing her with a kitchen knife all over her body.
“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 deceased disagreed with her son on the issue, refusing to accept the eight months old pregnant woman into her house.
“She said she was not interested in her and that her son should have brought the woman when the pregnancy was still in the early stage.
“Ibrahim, who thought that his mother was wrong and should have accepted the pregnant woman, 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 of her body, making sure that she was dead,” the prosecutor said.
Ibrahim, however, pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Miss M.O. Okpe Agbe at the Ebute Meta Magistrates’ Court ordered that the accused be remanded in the Ikoyi Prisons, pending advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions, DPP.
Agbe adjourned the matter till April 11 for mention.
