The young man said he approached his mother with the request to enable him attend a funeral in the community but could not get the desired response from the woman.

“Things however went out of control when the mother walked out on him. The boy now picked up a hoe and hit his mother on the head. The woman’s head was ripped open and she fell in a pool of blood. That was how she died”.
When contacted, Spokesperson of the state Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko,.confirmed that the boy was in police custody.
