A 33-year-old man, Segun Ogunlusi, who allegedly killed his mother, Abimbola Ogunlusi, on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, has confessed that he killed her because she was persistently asking him for sex.
The suspect was paraded at the Ogun State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, on Tuesday by the state Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu, alongside 23 other suspects who were held for alleged armed robbery, stealing, cultism, and kidnapping.
The tragic incident occurred at No. 16, Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, Sagamu Local Government Area of the state.
Fielding questions from journalists during the parade, the suspect said he was provoked by his mother’s alleged incessant demand for sex.
He said, “I killed my mother because she has been demanding sex persistently from me. She said if I had sex with her, I would be free.
“On a particular Tuesday morning when two of us were at home, she was in the kitchen. I walked up to her and stabbed her in the stomach and she died.
“I poured kerosene on her corpse in a bid to burn her, but the corpse did not catch fire. Later, I dumped the corpse in a soakaway.”
Segun however looked remorseful, and said he regretted his action.
“I regret everything I did,” he said.
