One Ibukun Solomon has shared insight into how his mother, Mrs Tayelolu Solomon, killed his father, Mr Felix Solomon.
The incident happened on Saturday at the GRA area of Ondo town in Ondo State as the middle-aged woman hit her 67-year-old husband with a pestle multiple times while he was sleeping, leading to his death.
A culmination of lingering crisis between the couple, their son, Ibukun, who witnessed the unpleasant scene, said of it, “My mother killed my father with a pestle in my presence and took to her heels. She used the pestle to hit his head when he was asleep.
“Earlier on the fateful day, a minor argument had ensued between them that resulted in a fight. After the fight, my father went to lie on the chair and my mother hit his head with the pestle.
“He became unconscious in the process and fell down from where he was sleeping. My mother used the pestle to hit my father’s head three times and he later died.
“When my mother saw that my father was already unconscious, she hid the pestle at the back of our house and ran away. I alerted some of the residents, who rushed my father to the hospital.
“But he later died. His corpse has been deposited at the morgue. My mother had three children for my father and I’m the last child.”
