Police parade maid who allegedly killed Igbinedion’s mother

Edo State Police Command on Tuesday paraded a housemaid Dominion Okoro for allegedly killing Maria Igbinedion, mother of a former governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion.

Ms Okoro, 25, who was arrested in her hometown in Calabar, Cross River State, said she hit the 85-year-old woman in the head with a stool while she slept on December 2.

She said she made away with N100,000, a wristwatch and jewellery from the GRA residence following the act.

“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,” she said.

“I waited till 4am on December 2, 2021, before leaving the house with mama’s N100,000, wristwatch and jewellery. I escaped to Cross River State, but I was later arrested by the police.”

The deceased was buried in Benin on December 10.

The prime suspect’s elder sister, Patience, was first arrested by the police, before Okoro was nabbed and moved to Benin for investigation.

Patience said neither she nor their parents knew anything about the alleged crime.

Edo State police commissioner Phillip Ogbadu said it took time, efforts and money to arrest Okoro, adding that about 20 persons were first arrested before the suspect was caught.
