It was gathered that Isaac, an indigene of Oruk Uso Otoro village in Abak Local Government Area of the state hacked his mother to death for starving him of food for three days.
Family sources revealed to our correspondent in Uyo that Isaac usually requested money from his mum who always granted his request, but on that fateful day, she denied his request, saying there was no money.
