Man Kills 100-Year-Old Mother For Alleged Witchcraft

40-year-old man, Likita Manu, has been arrested by the police in Niger State for allegedly killing his 100-year-old mother, Inne Kaiyo, for alleged witchcraft.





Manu was said to have accused his aged mother of killing his daughter, Magajiya, with witchcraft.

He was said to have allegedly descended on his mother, beating her with a stick, after his daughter died.


According to the police, Manu was joined in the beating by his 80-year-old father, Kwacha, who is also being detained.

In a chat with Punch, Kwacha claimed that Magajiya was the ninth person that Kaiyo had allegedly killed through her witchcraft.

He said, “After killing my granddaughter, I could not just let her go scot-free, so I used a little dry stick to cane her on the legs while at the same time asking her why she killed her great grandchild and she just died.

“The case of my granddaughter is a well-known issue in our area to the leaders and the people and every effort we made to free the young girl all failed. She died on the way to the hospital at 8am, last week Thursday.”

Asked how he knew that his mother was responsible for his daughter’s death, Manu said, “We got to know through Magajiya, when she was sick. She cried and begged her great grandmother, Inne Kaiyo, to release her soul. And we all begged my mother to release her but she refused. I am also aware that my mother was a witch.”

Manu, however, said he was saddened by the loss of his mother and daughter, but said he had accepted it “as an act of God.”

The police command’s Public Relations Officer, Abigail Unaeze, confirmed the incident, adding that the matter will be charged to court soon.

Renewing her life with the souls of younger generation? Even if its for an extra year.Especially when you have aged people that don't like the thought of dying and not truly religious. I remember one one in my village then. Whenever she is sick she will come to her verandah to be calling young children to come and assist her,not even adults. When they do that she will suddenly get better,meanwhile the little one that came over to run errands will mysteriously fall sick and die. Happened a lot of times till she finally died. Come and see snakes lying in wait in the place they dug to bury her. Better snakes in numbers.

@ Sheyla is deeply saddens me when is hear young people like you who should know better talk like this. What is our fate in Nigeria if in this time and day our generation is still stuck on this backward mentality and even able to display it on a world platform for all to see.

SMH.
