What do you think would make a mother kill her own daughter, a girl she gave birth to and nurtured till 22?
That’s the question every sane people who came across this incident have been asking.
Mrs. Victoria Aina, a middle aged woman in Ekiti state has allegedly killed her own daughter, Miss. Oluwafunmilayo Rosaline Abosede Adanikin, a 300 level student of the Federal College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti.
The woman, who until the alleged killing of her daughter, lived in their compound besides Baba Ewenla house in Idamodu area of Emure-Ekiti, Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
She was said to have put an end to the life of her 22-year-old daughter on the night of December 7th at their apartment.
Trouble started a few days earlier when the victim began to confess of committing some evil deeds through diabolic means. She was said to have allegedly confessed to causing havoc in her family by killing relatives and spoiling others fortunes with fetish powers she got from her mother.
A neighbor who craved anonymity, (an old woman) told reporter: “Abosede had confessed to killing a relative of her mum as well as causing the misfortune that befell her father, Pa Titus Folorunso Adanikin, among other things before we heard that she had died that night.
The incident caused a stir in the community, as the girl actually made the confessions in the full glare of the public. “She was taken to some churches for prayers and spiritual deliverance where she spent days confessing and disrupting the peace of everyone there. She was even said to have confessed to be in a spiritual cult in which she already had two babies. She said she would return to her home in the occult world whenever she lost her virginity here on earth. She also revealed that she had lost her virginity recently.” Another resident, informed that the last church that Abosede was taken to rejected her and asked her mum to take her home.
The old woman continued: “Abosede’s confessions were reported to our traditional ruler, Oba Emmanuel Adebayo (a former Commissioner of Police) who immediately ordered that the girl and her mum should report at the palace so the matter could be looked into according to the traditions of the land. The Oba sent his messenger with the royal staff, but Mrs. Adanikin lied to the bearers of the king’s message that the girl didn’t confess to committing anything. They said she only had some mental problems. But as soon as the king’s messenger left, she tied the hands and legs of the girl so as to tame her. Her neighbors said when it was late in the night, she began to beat the girl in the room where she had her locked up and eventually pushed her against some planks earlier kept there by her late father to make doors for his uncompleted building.
