The Police in Anambra State have taken into custody a 52-year-old man, Christopher Okadigbo, who was accused of killing his 82-year-old mother, Roseline Okadigbo.
The police also picked up one Ameke Udolu who had allegedly help in perpetuation the crime.
The first son of the deceased, Mr. Innocent Okadigbo, told the PUNCH that he had a “strong suspicion” that his younger brother’s motive was to use their mother for ritual.
Innocent said her late mother reported to him 24 hours before her death about the  suspicious moves of Christopher and Udolu around her apartment.
He said, “My mother told me on the telephone that my younger brother, Christopher, came to her apartment with one Ameke Udolu and they were moving round and making comments that were suspicious.
 “My mother added that she was afraid of staying alone in her house due to the kind of utterances she overheard from the two men.
“In less than 24 hours after my mother’s apprehensive telephone call to me, I received another call from one Pius Aniefule that my mother was found dead in a pool of blood.
“Minutes afterwards, my brother, Christopher, who stopped relating with me since 1999 also called to inform me about the incident, claiming that he travelled to Minna, Niger State, from where people at home broke the news to him.’’
