Man Slaughters Mother for Refusing to Hand Over Inherited Disappearing Charms

An 18-year-old man, Agugu Adau, has walked himself into trouble after he murdered his mother for tempering with his charm, whice he claimed was potent for disappearing.
According to him the charm was passed on to him by his late herbalist father.
Adau, who hails from Kisaghyip village farm in Bassa Local Government Area of Plateau, State, is currently cooling his heels in the police cell.
It was learnt that after killing his mother, he removed the sum of N20,000 from her blood-sucked clothes and used it to buy a mobile phone, a shirt and a pair of slippers.
Adau, who spoke with newsmen, said that he killed the woman because she refused to give him a charm that was his inheritance from his father.
“When I was 14 years old, my late father, who was a native doctor, showed me a charm that enabled him to disappear and reappear at will. He promised to handover the charm to me when I turn 18.
“On his dying bed four years ago, he gave my mother the charm and asked her to give me when I turn 18. But I am now 18 and she has refused to give it to me.
“On this fateful day at the farm, I asked her about it, but she threatened to throw the charm into the river, if I disturbed her too much.
“Her response infuriated me and I suddenly felt that she was of no value as a mother. I immediately slaughtered her with the knife I was using to harvest potatoes.
“After slaughtering her, I dumped her body in the bush,” he said.
But Adau’s elder brother debunked his claims, insisting that he killed their mother to steal the N20,000.
