It's quite sickening when we hear of stories of how people have killed their flesh and blood, sometimes we hear of husband's killing their wives, wives killing their husbands, brothers killing each other, and even children killing their parents. When you try to find out why people carry out such acts they either blame it on the manipulation from the devil, while some say it is out of jealousy.

According to the Nation Newspaper, a young lady identified as Blessing Jimoh took the life of her mother by slashing her with a cutlass, because her pastor revealed that her mother was a witch. The incident happened in Ondo state and Blessing has been apprehended by the police for her crime. The 30-year-old disclosed that she killed her mother and the murder weapon she used was a cutlass.

She mentioned that it was her pastor that revealed that her mother(Ijeoma Odo) was a witch and that she was responsible for her predicament. She(blessing) proceeded to plead with her mother who denied being a witch. Blessing didn't stop there, she ended up killing her mother by cutting her throat with a cutlass while they were working on a farm which is located in an area known as Ile-Iluji in Ondo state.
