SAN FRANCISCO, March 28, (THEWILL) –It was a case of domestic disagreement gone sour, Thursday, in Oleh, headquarters of Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta State.

A 32 -year-old mentally deranged woman,simply identified as Elo Elili, sent her father, Warrant Officer Jonah Elili (rtd) and his wife, aged 75 and 65 respectively, to their early grave by hitting them severally with a pestle thus causing grief and sorrow in the family of two boys and five girls .

The remains of the couple were said to have been discovered early Thursday by a neighbour who came knocking on their door to buy from their petty shop.

According to sources, the woman who was eager to make a purchase, had peeped into the house after knocking effortlessly without any response and raised the alarm on seeing the husband and wife lying in the pool of their blood.

Reliable sources in the area disclosed that the last they knew or heard about the family was when the retired soldier came out to drag her mentally deranged daughter who ran outside naked (ostensibly because of her insanity) back into the house and locked her up.

However in her statement of defense at the Oleh Police Station where she was arrested, Elo, who is believed to have a twin sister who is also affected with insanity and has since walked away from the community without any trace, said; “My parents hate me, locked me up in a room where they first hit me before I retaliated with a pestle, I saw blood and that is all I know.”

The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Oleh Division, CSP Lawrence Ogoegbulem, confirmed the incident, saying signal had been sent to the appropriate authorities and the case will be transferred immediately.
