A Fulani herdsman, Abubakar Usman, has been arrested for allegedly killing his 65-year-old mother, Khadijat, and his brother’s wife, Ramatu Shagari, 35.
Usman, who lives in the Patigi Area of Kwara State, said he could not explain what pushed him to the crime. He, however, alleged that his father might have charmed him, adding that he regretted his action.
One of the two suspects arrested with a human head, umar, also confessed to the crime, saying that there had been a quarrel between him and the victim.
This is a recent development, away from the routine crime the herdsmen had been committing in the last few months in some parts of the country.
