Why I Burnt My 86-year-old Mother Alive - Daughter
A 45-year-old woman, Abiodun (also known as ‘Iya Sunday’), set her 86-year-old mother ablaze in Ondo City, Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State, resulting in her death.

Gatekeepers News reports that according to eyewitness Sola Oladele, Abiodun poured petrol on her mother and ignited the flames around 5 am on Friday.

Abiodun claimed she was acting on advice from a pastor and a woman who told her that her mother was responsible for her predicament and that she needed to end her life to break a supposed “bondage”.

“I went to my mother’s house around 4 am and sat outside. When it was 5 am, I called out my mother from the house. Immediately after she came out, not knowing what was happening, I poured petrol on her body and set her on fire.

“It all started when I went to one pastor for prayers, and he told me that my mother was behind what was happening to me. I did not believe it at first. My mother also took me somewhere to see a woman. After my mother left, the woman also said the same thing.

“I burnt my mother because of what I heard from the pastor and the woman, that I can only be free from bondage when my mother is dead,” the suspect said.

Ondo State Police Command spokesperson SP Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya confirmed the incident and stated that the victim died on Saturday while receiving treatment at the hospital.

She added that Abiodun will now face murder charges.
