A University of Benin, Edo State, undergraduate, Caleb Obasogie who reportedly murdered his mother, Josephine Igbineweka on Thursday, September 28, 2017, did it due to a spat over money.

Igbineweka was locked in her house alone with the 22-year-old youth who gored her with a broken bottle.

Help came from her neighbours but it appeared too late as she had lost a large amount of blood before their arrival according to Punch News who reported that most residents abandoned the compound following the tragedy.
