The Nigerian Police have arrested an 18 year old boy, Hounvenou Yavine, a national of the Republic of Benin, for slitting the throat of his boss’ mother, Mrs. Mariam Abiola.

According to Punch, Yavine was brought into Lagos in April 2014 by his elder sister on the request of late Mrs Abiola's daughter. He was then taken to the Ikeja home of the late 78 year old woman to serve as her househlp as well as an assistant at her alcohol distribution shop. A month after his arrival, her home was demolished by the state government, prompting her to temporarily relocate to her daughter's home at the Ijaiye Low Cost Housing Estate, Pen Cinema Lagos where his primary assignment was to take care of her and also clean her daughter's house.

On July 1st, Yavine, who was alone at home with the old woman, slit her throat and left her to die. No one knows why he killed the woman but when asked, the young boy said someone asked him to kill her. Continue...
Yasvine was recently arraigned before a Lagos Magistrate court where a one count charge of murder was read to him.
"That you, Hounvenou Yavine, on July 1, 2014 at Ijaiye Low Cost Housing Estate, Pen Cinema, Lagos in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully kill one Mariam Abiola, aged 78 years, by stabbing her with a knife on her throat and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 221 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011.” the charge read
He was remanded in police custody pending when the case comes up again for hearing on 8th Sept. 2014.
