Widow Strangled By Robbers... steal money, bags of rice

A widow who's trying to feed hersef, Mrs. Florence Ede, has been strangled by suspected robbers on her farm in Chikanda, a border community in Baruten area of Kwara State.

The deceased, known as Mama Do Good, hailed from Enugu and was a food seller when she came to the community in 1985, but became a commercial farmer after the death of her husband.

A member of the Igbo community in Chikanda, Mr. Mayor Akonobi, stated that Ede was strangled by the assailants, who had trailed her to the farm.

He told Punch that the mother of four had a huge amount of money on her and had wanted to pay the labourers before she was killed.

He said the robbers also carted away 12 bags of rice harvested from the widow's farm.

“The only guard at the farm when the incident occurred ran away when the assailants attacked her,” Akonobi added.

Kwara State Police PRO, Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident and said police had commenced investigation into the dastardly act.

"The guard and the labourers have been arrested. They are helping us with our investigation."


  1. That’s callous! God will expose those behind her killing & may her soul RIP.

  2. Hmmmmmm! So they need her farm producst but can't go and farm? These are people that hate agricultural activities and yet they want to enjoy another's sweat. My prayer is that they will be arrested soon so they can pay dearly. Rip to the woman.

  3. Lord have mercy! These people are wicked and heartless. Gosh! RIP to her

  4. She obviously recognised one or more of the robbers ...its an inside job ...the Labourers should be severely interogated ..wicked world..
