I killed my mother because her persistent demand for sex distressed me – 33-year-old man
A 33-year-old man, Segun Ogunlusi, was believed to have had mental health challenges when he allegedly killed his mother, Abimbola Ogunlusi, on Tuesday, December 13, 2016.
Segun Ogunlusi said he killed her because she persistently asked him for sex.
Punch reports that Segun had killed his mother and had dumped the corpse in a soakaway on Oketunde street, Molatori, Ogijo, in the Sagamu local government area of the state.
Psychologists said Segun would not have killed her mother if he was mentally alright or not depressed. But Segun said he was provoked and highly distressed by his mother's alleged incessant sex demand, saying that he could no longer endure it.
He said, "I killed my mother because she had been demanding sex persistently from me and I no longer tolerate the abuse.
"She said if I had sex with her, I would be free. On a particular Tuesday, two of us were at home; she was in the kitchen when I walked up to her, stabbed her in the stomach and she died.
"I poured kerosene on her corpse in a bid to burn her, but the corpse did not burn. Later, I dumped the corpse in a soakaway."
Segun, who looked remorseful and distress, said he regretted his action.
"I regret everything I did," he said.
