Bolaji Salami, the commissioner of police in Ondo state, announced that the suspect, Blessing Jimoh, would be charged in court soon. According to reports, the pastor is on the run.
Blessing while claiming to be mentally unfit confessed:
“It was something inside of me that drove me to murder my mother. I'm not pleased with what I did. I used a cutlass to sever her neck. It was a Pastor who told me she was a witch, so I went to beg her. My mother is from the state of Enugu. We've been searching for the pastor but we have not seen him".
