June 2, 2013

A middle-aged woman, Peace Agbonlahor, has appeared before a Magistrates Court in Ekpoma, Esan West Local Government Area of Edo State for allegedly stabbing her daughter, Abundance Agbonlahor, to death by using a kitchen knife.

Vanguard learnt that the accused committed the offence on March 23, 2013 along Borehole Road, Ekpoma.

The act, according to the charge, is punishable under section 319(1) of the Criminal Code Cap 48, Vol. 11, and Laws of defunct BendelState of Nigeria of 1976 now applicable in EdoState.

However, the magistrate, Mrs. Margaret Iluobe, declined taking her plea, insisting that the matter did not fall under the court’s jurisdiction.

She, consequently, referred the matter to Director of Public Prosecution, DPP, for advice.
