Grandma Kills Son, Grandchild, Others Over Food

The Ondo State Police Command has commenced an investigation into a case of a 75-year-old grandmother accused of setting her son, his wife, and their two children ablaze.

The incident was said to have occurred in the Aponmu community in Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo State, on Sunday morning while the victims were still asleep.

Three of the victims were said to have died as a result of the incident.

A source in the community told reporters that when questioned why she set the victims on fire, the grandma reportedly attributed her action to the fact that the victims were allegedly starving her.

   Also speaking, a neighbour of the victims, Korede Michael, told journalists on Tuesday that he saw the victims’ house on fire around 2am on the day the incident happened and had to break the window to rescue them.

Michael said, “The woman; her son, Victor Oloro; wife, Rachael; and children, Toluwani and Blessed, were all in the house when she set it on fire. She got some dry palm fronds and a little petrol her son kept in a gallon, spread it around the house and then set it on fire.
