The Punch reported on Sunday, April 14, that the man killed his mum, who was said to be about 100 years old, following a dispute over proceeds of palm oil sold.

An eyewitness, identified simply as Rasaki, said Lukman and the deceased hired a labourer who assisted them in selling some kegs of palm oil.

As the labourer wanted to remit the proceeds, the late Aminat reportedly insisted that the money should be paid to her, which infuriated the suspect.

He further said:

“A labourer that was hired by the two of them wanted to remit proceeds of the sales but the mother insisted that she ought to receive it first. That led to a serious misunderstanding. Lukman attacked the woman and killed her.”
