A Fulani herdsman, Abubakar Usman, was on Wednesday paraded at the headquarters of the Kwara state police command for killing his mother and brother’s wife.
The 25-year old cattle rearer who said he could give any reason for his action however claimed his father must have cast a spell on him.
Usman who lives at the Patigi area of the state said he didn’t know what came over him that made him kill his 65-year old mother, Khadijat and 35-year old sister-in-law, Ramatu Shagari.
He said, “I am into cattle rearing. On that day when I woke up, I took N1,000 from my room and took my cows out for grazing. Suddenly, I discovered that the cattle were running away and I followed them. On getting back home, something came over me and I used a knife to stab my mother. I also stabbed my brother’s wife. I believe that my father charmed me. I do not have mental disorder.”
