A suspected internet fraudster who attempted to strangle and pluck out his mother’s eyes for ritual purposes has been apprehended by the police in Delta state.
The suspect, Emma Ereegarnoma carried out the money ritual act on Tuesday September 14 at his residence in Okuokoko town in Okpe Local government area of Delta state, in a bid to buy a Mercedes Benz.
It was gathered that he invited his petty trader mother to his home for a surprise, and she was excited when she came in and heard a loud music playing from his home theatre.
After welcoming her, he locked the door, started strangling her and attempted to pluck out her eyes. As the loud music submerged her cries for help, she was able to break free and ran out to neighbors who rescued her.
Her son, Emma was apprehended and handed over to the police. The suspect who earlier bragged about buying a Benz GLK this week, is now being detained at Orerokpe police station while his mother receives medical care at a hospital in Okuokoko.
