Boy accuses mom of beating dad to death



A boy, Kefas Luca, has accused his 40-year-
old mother, Mary, of beating his father to
The incident
occurred in the Gonin-Gora of Chikun Local
Government Area of Kaduna State on Saturday
Trouble was said to have started after the
deceased arrived home at midnight.
It was learnt that there was an argument
between him and the wife.
It was gathered that on several occasions,
Mary had warned her husband against coming
home late but the husband would not heed to
her warning until that fateful day.
But at about 3am, the unthinkable happened.
According to the deceased’s first son, Kefas,
he heard his father screaming for help. Kefas
said his mum shouted that it was armed
robbers that were attacking them and told
him not to enter the room.
Kefas explained that the more he tried to
know what was happening, the louder his
mother screamed ‘thieves! thieves!’.
Kefas said by the time he summoned up
courage to force his way into his father’s
room, he found him vomiting blood and could
no longer talk.
He said at that point, his mother was still
pretending that it was armed robbers who
attacked them.
He said, “I heard my father shouting around
3am that day (Saturday) and so I called on my
mother to inquire what was happening.
“My mother shouted back at me from her
room to keep off and remain quiet that armed
robbers were operating. The more I tried to
get closer to my father’s room, the more my
mother screamed thieves! thieves! thieves!
“When I finally summoned up courage to
enter my father’s room, I found him vomiting
blood and he could no longer talk while my
mother was still pretending that it was armed
robbers that attacked him.
“There was a heavy object by his side and he
was bleeding profusely from his forehead. At
daybreak, neighbours came around to help
and the police outpost at Gonin Gora arrested
my mother and took her to Sabon Tasha
Police station.”
The Police Public Relations Officer at the
Command, Abubakar Zubairu, who confirmed
the arrest, said Mary had been detained by
the command for further investigation.
