Housemaid Kills Her Madam By Smashing Her Head With Stone

A 14-year-old girl who allegedly killed her madam has been paraded at the police command headquarters in Benin, the capital of Edo State.

It was gathered that the killer teenager, Miss Hannah Amos, a housemaid was arrested on Wednesday, August 8 for the alleged murder of 71-year-old Mrs Helen Adodo, a day before, by smashing her head with a big stone.

The young suspect who had lived with the old woman for about four months since April at Guobadia Street, in uptown Benin, said some unseen spirit who control her, ordered her murder the septuagenarian.

Hannah further told reporters that the occultic spirit sternly warned her never to disclose that she was the one responsible for the death of her victim.

The Junior Secondary School student of Itohan Girls’ Grammar School, Benin who denied being a member of the occult, however, confessed that during night time, she normally sees herself in the midst of occultic people singing and dancing but does not participate.

In crocodile tears, Hannah, a Gbagi from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, described the deceased as a kindhearted woman who took her like a grandchild but ironically smashed her head as she dozed off in an arms chair on that fateful morning.

She said: “I don’t know what came over me. Iye (as she was fondly called) was very good to me. She never offended me. The only complaint against me was that she was always rebuking me for not eating much. It is some evil forces that order me to kill her.”

She said that she was alone at home with the victim as her sister went out, and took advantage of her absence to kill her with the big stone which she found in the verandah of the house.
