17-Year-Old Katsina Boy Who Killed His Mother Over Witchcraft Opens Up A Dialogue

A 17-year-old boy, Agayo Iorzenda, has been paraded by the Benue State Police Command for killing his mother at Tse-Agbaigbe Ikyurav-Tiev 11, in Katsina/Ala Local Government Area, because she was responsible for his being impotent in the last few years.

Parading the suspect, yesterday, at the Command Headquarters, state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Paul Yakadi, said he was apprehended Monday evening by the Police in Katsina-Ala.

He said the suspect allegedly shot his mother with a locally-made gun after accusing her of witchcraft.

Represented by the Command Public Relations Officer, Assistant Superintendent, ASP, Moses Yamu, the Police Commissioner said the matter was still being investigated by the Police after which he would face trial.

Speaking to reporters, Iorzenda said: “I went to consult the oracle over my impotence and I was told that my mother used my manhood for witchcraft and rendered me impotent. She did not want me to be a man.

“So my friend advised me to kill her so as to use her blood to acquire spiritual powers that will help me become rich and also do many other things. That was why I shot her.”
