An 18-year-old girl has reportedly murdered her mother following a minor fight at Rumuchakara village, Choba, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
According to a source close to the family, the duo engaged in an argument after the deceased asked her daughter to make dinner for the family which she vehemently refused to do in the evening of Wednesday, June 17, 2015.
It was learnt that the girl’s refusal to oblige to her mother’s instruction irked the woman who eventually gave her a slap.
Vanguard gathered that the girl, in retaliation, picked up a plank and smashed her mother’s head with it. Efforts to save the woman’s life reportedly failed.
Furthermore, the girl has been said to have fled to an unknown place after she discovered that her mum dropped dead.
A decree has been reportedly passed to restrict the fleeing young girl from returning to the community after committing such taboo.
Meanwhile, there is yet to be an official statement by the state police to either confirm or dispel the news.
