Taye Ibiwoye who hails from Kwara state was alleged to have killed his mother Sarah Ibiwoye with an axe.
The incident which occurred on Friday led to the death of the woman who is believed to be in her sixties.
Just when the community was trying to get over the tragic incident, they were further thrown into mourning when another elderly woman, simply identified as `Iya Eleja’ slumped and died when the news of Sarah’s death was broken to her.
According to NAN, the accused was mentally deranged and had been under treatment for some time.
Some sources, who craved anonymity, said that Ibiwoye had complained to the policemen who came for his arrest from Oke-Onigbin that his mother was behind his travails.
He was also said to have told the policemen that while his brothers were living comfortably, he was rotting away in abject poverty because of his mother’s action.
A relation to Iya Eleja, told NAN on condition of anonymity, that the woman was hale and hearty before the unfortunate incident.
The Divisional Police Officer, Oke-Onigbin Police Command, DSP. Mr Olutekunbi Ekundayo, told NAN that the case would be transferred to the State CID Headquarters in Ilorin for investigation.
“There is not much we can do here as far as this case is concerned, particularly as regards the issue of the accused person’s state of health.
“Though, it was a case of a culpable homicide but as you can see now, I am preparing the file for the transfer of the case to the State CID for appropriate investigation,” he said.
