A Teenage boy, Akpobome Samuel, confessed to killing his mother and partaking in necrophilia with the corpse
Akpobome revealed that he strangled his mother Gift Samuel and committed the dastardly act with her corpse in hopes of getting money
Akpobome’s grandmother discovered what he did and reported to the police.
He was arrested and when paraded, explained why he did what he did
“I wanted to use my mother for ritual. I am 18 years old.” he said
“My father is dead. It was one man called ‘One Love’ that told me to use my mother for money ritual. He promised to give me N50,000 if I killed my mother and sleep with her.
“He said I should cut my mother’s ear and fingers and bring them to him. I wanted to cut the ears and fingers before the people came in. I slept with my mother only once.”
He also explained how exactly he killed her
“I pressed my mother’s neck to kill her while she was sleeping. The One Love sells drugs. He put something inside the drink he gave me and he told me to go and kill my mother.
“The day I went to his house with policemen, the man had run away. I hail from Oghara. I work in a pure water factory. I now feel very bad because I was beaten badly by people. I did what the ritualist told me.
“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.
“He told me to keep her dead body inside the room for two days but I was caught when I could no longer keep it. My mother did not offend me. I killed her because of the money.”
