‘I killed my mother because she pestered me for sex’
A thirty-three-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, yesterday 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 Council of the state.
Fielding questions from journalists, the suspect said he was provoked by his mother’s alleged incessant demand for sex. He said: “I killed my mother because she had been demanding sex persistently from me. She said if I had sex with her, I would be free.
“On a particular Tuesday morning when the two of us were at home, she was in the kitchen, when I walked up to her and stabbed her in the stomach and she died. I poured kerosene on her remains in a bid to burn her, but the body did not catch fire. Later, I dumped the corpse in a septic tank.”
Strangely, Segun, however, looked remorseful, and said he regretted his action. “I regret everything I did,” he told newsmen.
