A 38-year-old woman, Bolanle Abiola, is in police net with an accomplice for killing her 70-year-old mother, Abudu Abiola.
The incident, which occurred in Pedepo Village, Imeko in Imeko-Afon Local Government Area of Ogun State, was described as a shock by those who know the family.
It was learnt that the late Abiola was killed by Bolanle, who is yet to get married, and her friend between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
Bolanle, a trader in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, was reported to have arrived in the village on Wednesday night.
It was after they left that neighbours knew what had transpired.
The police, however, trailed Bolanle to a park in Abeokuta where she was arrested on Thursday morning.
The police confirmed the killing.
