A lady identified as Dominion Okoro has narrated how she allegedly killed the mother of the former Governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, Maria Oredola.
The 25-year-old while narrating the incident disclosed that she hit the deceased with a stool while sleeping in order to rob her of her possession.
Okoro, while being paraded at the Edo State Police headquarters, noted that she stole ₦100,000, a wristwatch and jewellery from the GRA residence of the Igbinedions.
She said, “I killed Mama (Madam Maria Igbinedion) to carry her money. She did not offend me. While she was sleeping on her bed, around 12:01 a.m. on December 2, 2021, I used a stool to hit her on the head and she was shouting for help, but only the gateman was around and he did not hear the shout. Mama later died.
“I waited till 4 a.m. on December 2, 2021, before leaving the house with Mama’s N100,000, wristwatch, and jewellery. I escaped to Cross River State, but I was later arrested by the police.”
Edo Commissioner of Police, Phillip Ogbadu, revealed that it took time, efforts and money to arrest Dominion, noting that no fewer than 20 persons were first arrested before Dominion was arrested and she confessed to committing the crime.
According to Ogbadu, the suspects in the murder of Madam Igbinedion would soon be charged to court, after a thorough investigation.
