A 29-year-old, Taiwo Akinola, has been arrested in Lagos for attempting to kill his mother, Mrs. Alice Akinola, for money ritual.
Taiwo, who is into cyber fraud and money ritual better known, as Yahoo Plus, about 8.30pm on Sunday hit his victim in their flat located at 2, Raji Ajanaku Street, Alaja Road, Ayobo area of the state in the skull with a plank studded with nails and then a pressing iron during the vile attack.
Leading up to carried out the dastardly act, the suspect reportedly invited his mother, who was in her shop in front of their residence into their flat and also sent his 14-year-old nephew simply identified as Farouk on errands.
However, the lid if any on Taiwo’s crime was blown wide open on Farouk’s return.
The teenager met no one in the shop and proceeded to the house where his eyes was greeted by his grandmother covered in pool of blood with a gush to her head and unconscious.
He was said to have raised the alarm, which drew the attention of neighbours, who in turn rushed Mrs. Akinola to hospital where she was revived and hospitalised.
Her attacker has also been arrested and was paraded by the police on Monday.
