27-year-old Emmanuel Eghaghe, is on the run after he allegedly killed his mum for failing to give him N20,000.
Punch reports that Eghaghe had beaten his 61-year-old mother, Helen, to death when she refused to oblige his request of N20,000 as pocket money.

The incident occurred on on July 6, 2018 at Jinadu Street, Ajangbadi, Lagos State, where the late Helen had a shop.

An eyewitness account on how Eghaghe beat mum to death

Eghaghe had reportedly visited the 61-year-old Helen to request for the sum of N20,000 as pocket money but got his request turned down.

Helen's refusal saw Eghaghe reportedly resorting to violence during which he slammed his mum's head on the wall while he was struggling to get the money from her.

During the struggle, Helen was said to have sustained an injury in the head and as soon as Eghaghe saw blood spilling from his mum's head, he fled the scene.

The eyewitness said, “The sister of the suspect has a hotel in the community. He gave their mother a room in the hotel. She also opened a shop for the woman in front of the hotel. On that day, the suspect approached his mother and asked her to give him N20,000 pocket money.

“The woman said she did not have that kind of money. He pushed her to the wall and broke her head in the process. There were bloodstains everywhere and the woman eventually died in a hospital. He ran away immediately and has yet to be found. His sister was abroad and she was planning to relocate him there. A resident informed the woman’s brother and he travelled to Lagos from Benin. I was surprised why a child would do such a cruel thing to his mother.”

Police confirms the death of Eghaghe's mum

It was also reported that the incident was formally reported to the police at the Ajangbadi Police Division.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, noting that the command had launched a manhunt for the suspect.

He said, “The police got a report that the suspect hit his mother’s head against the wall in an attempt to get money from her forcefully. As a result, she became unconscious and was rushed to the hospital for treatment. She gave up the ghost at the hospital.

“The suspect is now at large. Detectives visited the scene and deposited the corpse at the Isolo General Hospital mortuary for autopsy. A manhunt for the suspect is being intensified.”

I observed how some have allowed entitlement to becloud their judgment, they assume their demands must be met because they have the right to ask, things won't go well, even as they could use drugs and want to impress others.
This delusion has lead to some unfortunate events. We need to train the child in the way to grow, it may help control these delusions.

He seems to have an impulse control issue, while would a son do that, he must be so desperate for something, maybe some entitlement problem, with low impulse control, and poor judgment, he seems to be uncaring, and had to get that money to get something, it is likely he felt the money was abundant and was so angered when she said no to his demands, maybe the mother thought he was not reasonable and he was only there to ask for money and she wanted to correct something. But he was too disappointed and he felt it was an insult, for his mother not to give him that money.
