A middle aged man, simply identified as Bravo Kunde, has allegedly hacked his 80-year-old mother to death.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Emmanuel Abuh, confirmed the incident which occurred at Jenta Mangoro community of Jos North local government area.
The deceased, identified as Mama Yakubu, died of head injuries as a result of machete cuts inflicted on her by her son.
A relative of the deceased, Baba Nati, told newsmen that “Neighbours heard shouts in the house at about 6am as the old woman was crying for help but before they could get there, the old woman was already lying in the pool of her blood.”
It was gathered that relatives and neighbours beat the suspect, who was into excessive drinking and smoking, to coma.
He is currently in the police net while investigation into the matter had commenced.
A family member, Moses Yakubu, explained that the suspect, who is his elder brother, was restless the night before the incident and that no one could tell what prompted him to commit the dastardly act on their helpless mother.
“Before now, he has been doing strange things, but this is the worst thing he has performed,” he lamented.
