The Kwara State Police Command has arrested a Fulani herdsman, identified as, Abubakar Usman, for allegedly killing his 65-year-old mother, Khadijat, and his brother’s wife, Ramatu Shagari, 35.
The 25-year old, who resides in Patigi area of the state, was paraded at the state police command’s headquaters in Ilorin, the state capital on Wednesday.
Usman, while speaking with Punch, however, regretted his action, saying he may have been charmed by his father.
According to Usman, “I am into cattle rearing. On that day when I woke up, I took N1,000 from my room and took my cows out for grazing.
“Suddenly, I discovered that the cattle were running away and I followed them. On getting back home, something came over me and I used a knife to stab my mother. I also stabbed my brother’s wife. I believe that my father charmed me. I do not have mental disorder.”
