In a shocking and tragic incident, a 45-year-old woman known as Abiodun, also called 'Iya Sunday,' set her 85-year-old mother ablaze, accusing her of witchcraft. The incident occurred on Surulere Street in the Ondo West Local Government Area.

The elderly victim, who sustained severe burns from head to toe, was rushed to the hospital for treatment but succumbed to her injuries on Saturday morning.

Eyewitnesses reported that the horrifying act took place early on Friday morning. According to Sola Oladele, one of the witnesses, Abiodun arrived at her mother’s house at 5 a.m., called her outside, and then doused her with petrol before setting her on fire.

"What transpired before the sad incident, we don’t know. But she came as early as 5 a.m and called out the old woman before pouring petrol on her," Oladele recounted.

Local residents quickly alerted the police from the Enu-Owa Division, leading to Abiodun’s arrest. During her interrogation, Abiodun claimed that her mother was responsible for her misfortunes, a belief she said was reinforced by a pastor's prophecy.

"I went to my mother’s house, and when it was 5 a.m., I called her out from the house. Immediately after she came out, I poured petrol on her and set her on fire. I did that because she is behind my predicament. I went to someone to pray and was told that she was behind all my problems. Firstly, I did not believe it until she took me to a place and after she had left, I was told the same thing. Since the pastor said I can only be free from bondage when she died, I decided to take action," Abiodun confessed.

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for the Ondo State Police Command, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, stated that the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) in Akure. Odunlami-Omisanya also confirmed the elderly woman’s death due to the severe burns she sustained.

“The case is being investigated by the SCID here in Akure, but the old woman died this morning following the injuries she suffered from the burns,” she said.
