Wonders they say, would never cease, or how do you describe the case of an 18 year old boy who has made love with his late mother’s love?
The boy is already cooling off with the police, accused of also killing the woman for ritual purposes.
The youngster was amongst other suspects arrested by the Edo Command of the police, and paraded before newsmen by the the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Johnson Kokumo, in Benin on Wednesday.
Speaking to journalists, the suspect said a ritualist had instructed him to carry out the act as a condition to making him rich.

According to him, he strangled the woman at 5 a.m. on Oct. 10 in Ologbo, near Benin, while she woman was asleep.

The suspect disclosed that luck ran out on him as he was arrested when his grandmother, who became suspicious of him, raised an alarm
