A suspected internet fraudster simply known as Emma has been nabbed by the Police in Orerokpe, Okpe Local Government Area of Delta State.
Emma was arrested for attempting to strangulate his mother for money ritual purposes.
The incident occurred at Caroline street in Okuokoko Community.
Eyewitnesses told newsmen that the suspect had invited his mother identified as Oke, a foodstuff seller at Okuokoko Community to his house for a supposed surprise package.
When his mother arrived at his apartment, he pretended to be happy and excited to see her, playing loud music.
Sources said as soon as Mrs Oke entered the house, the suspect quickly locked the door, attacked and tried to strangulate her to death while trying to pluck off her eyes.
She was said to have screamed for help as she gasped for breath but help did not come as there was loud music.
However, she reportedly struggled with her internet fraudster son until she was able to escape from his stronghold and raised an alarm.
Neighbours were said to have come to her rescue at this point, giving the suspect the beating of his life before he was handed over to the Police in Orerokpe Division.
When contacted for comments, the Delta State Acting Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe claimed he had not been briefed on the incident.
“Am not aware of that one oooo.”
