JUST IN: I killed ex-gov Igbinedion’s mother with stool, stole N100,000, wristwatch – Maid

A 25-year-old housemaid, Dominion Okoro, on Tuesday, in Benin, confessed to killing Madam Maria Igbinedion, 85, the mother of a former Governor of Edo State, Chief Lucky Igbinedion.

Narrating how she carried out the act on December 2, Dominion, who was arrested in her hometown in Calabar, Cross River State, said she hit her late boss in the head with a stool while she slept.

The suspect, who spoke while being paraded at the Edo State Police Command Headquarters in Benin, disclosed that she made away with N100,000, a wristwatch and jewellery from the GRA residence of the Igbinedions.

She said, “I killed mama to carry her money. She did not offend me. While she was sleeping on her bed, around 12.01am on December 2, 2021, I used a stool to hit her in the head and she shouted for help; but only the gateman was around and he did not hear the shout. Mama later died.
