In a photo Daily Trust has seen, the woman carries a basin filled with what looks like dismembered body parts.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Odiko Macdon, said the suspect is in custody, and investigations ongoing on the case.
He stated that it was unnerving for a daughter to butcher her mother to death, noting that the police would have to get medical personnel to certify her state of mind before she is charged to court.
“That story is true. She butchered her mum. We are suspecting that she is not of sound mind but we do not have any medical capacity to say so. Medical personnel will have to determine if she is of sound mind or not. If not, which right minded, thinking individual will kill her own mom by butchering her?
“As I speak, we have her in custody. We have gathered the corpse of the mom and deposited it in the mortuary. By the time we ascertain her state of mind, we will charge her accordingly.
“We have conducted preliminary investigations and more discreet investigations is on the way and she will be charged to court immediately after that,” he stated.
