Segun Odihiri, a 36-year-old man, on Friday, April 7, 2017 was arrested after he beheaded his 83-year-old mother in Uzzeba, Owan West LGA of Edo State
The victim, Madam Maria Odihiri, had alerted the community to an attempt by her son to rape his own daughter in their house.
According to Daily Trust, the mother’s intervention in stopping the abomination irked the suspect who picked up a cutlass and chopped off his mother’s head.
“For him to cover his shame, he picked up a cutlass and cut off his mother’s head while the daughter ran for safety,” a witness, Ekemeiren Ojekhugbo, told journalists. 
After killing his mother, Odihiri tried to hid her body but he was caught when he tried to dispose of it. 
Community members say that he was always threatening to kill her whenever they had arguments.
He was later taken to the Owan West Divisional Police Command in Sabongidda Ora.
There is no update on the whereabouts of the daughter who reportedly made an escape when her grandmother, now deceased, began to scream attracting the attention of their neighbours.
