Friends have gone on Facebook to mourn a woman who was stabbed to death by her 23-year-old son in Ejigbo, Lagos.
Mrs Toyin Okhide and her husband Barr. Clement Okhide, 60, were stabbed to death at their home on Tuesday evening, February 4, 2020 (read here). Their daughter Mary Okhide was also stabbed and is in the hospital fighting for her life.
According to neighbours, they were stabbed by their son Michael Okhide, 23. Neighbours claim Michael has always been problematic and frustrated all efforts by his parents to mould him into a better man.
He was also reportedly addicted to drugs and this was a source of concern to his father who was a known disciplinarian in the area.
After the death of Mrs Toyin, Friends took to Facebook to mourn her.
