The Edo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force has paraded a 14-year-old secondary school student, Anna Amos for allegedly smashing the head of her septuagenarian madam with a stone and killed her instantly in Benin City.
The accused house maid, according to the police committed the dastardly act in July, this year.
The teenage girl was paraded before newsmen at the state police command’s headquarter in Benin City on Friday by state commissioner of police, Mr. Johnson Kokumoh.
Anna Amos, however narrated how she murdered the woman she had lived with since March, 2018, as a house-maid.
Anna, who came to Benin City from Abuja, gave the horrible step-by-step description of how she committed the murder, when she was paraded with over 100 other criminal suspects arrested by the State Police Command.
The fair-complexion teenager who was in tears all through the period, narrated how her victim had treated her fairly when she lived with her.
She, however, blamed her dastardly act on influence of unseen voodoo spirit which which she said had possessed her.
The suspect disclosed to journalists that in the morning of that fateful day, she boiled water for the deceased to bathe, after which she served her her meal, before she killed her.
“After that, I packed the dirty plates outside to wash them. As I opened the door and stepped on the veranda, something just came into my body as if possessing me. I no longer knew what I was doing and I abandoned the plates I was supposed to wash.
“I stood on the stone, and later took it, went inside with it and hit it on her head,” she narrated.
When asked why she earlier said some people came into their house, gagged her mouth before smashing the head of the late woman, Anna said: “The thing that entered into me was controlling me, it told me that if I exposed it, it will kill me.”
She, however, disclosed that she later confessed her crime to the son of the deceased, who handed her over to the police who promptly arrested her.
Anna said her parents who live in Abuja came to visit her at the police detention on Thursday, and consoled her.
Compol Kokumoh further told newsmen that the accused would soon be charged to court for murder.
