Oke Eregarnoma was invited to her son Emma Eregarnoma’s house on Caroline Street, Okuokoko, Delta state after he persuaded her that he had a surprise package for her.
But upon getting to his house, she said she saw Emma in an unusual joyous mood. After he welcomed her in, he increased the volume of his musical gadgets. Oke alleged that her son suddenly locked the door and made moves to strangle and pluck off her eyes, just as she screamed for help, adding that no one heard her due to the loud music.
She said after fighting with his son for some minutes she regained her strength and ran outside for help, while neighbours came to her rescue.
Mrs Eregarnoma, while narrating her ordeal in her hospital bed where she was recuperating, recalled that before the attack, her son boasted that “he must drive GLK this week.
The suspect was consequently apprehended and taken to the police station. Emma was detained at the Orerokpe divisional police headquarters in Okpe Local Government Area, Delta State over the incident, which occurred on Tuesday in Okuokoko community near Warri.
The acting Police Public Relations Officer, Delta State, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident, adding that the suspect was in custody.
