Edo state police command has arrested two suspects who allegedly used super glue to seal the mouth of an 89-year woman, Imasogbonre Enahoro, to stop her from shouting for help.
The mouth of her daughter, Marylyn Ajibola, was also allegedly sealed shut with glue by the robbers before they proceeded to steal valuables and a Toyota Camry car from the victim’s’ residence. The victim and her family live in Igueben village, near Benin.
Report has it that a third suspect is still on the run.
The Nation revealed that the robbers stormed the home of Madam Enahoro on November 20 and first tied. When the mother and daughter kept shouting for help, they decided to seal their lips shut with glue.
Upon ransacking the house and finding no cash, the robbers made away with a Toyota Camry car which they drove to Osun State.
Marylyn, at the police headquarters, identified one of the persons arrested as the one who slapped her mother and applied super glue to shut her mouth.
Kingsley, one of the suspects, who claimed to be a student of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, said;
When we got to Mama’s place, she had no money to give to us. Two of us were outside and Tosin went inside. We found only N7,200 inside the car.
I did not know that this Mama’s mouth was glued because I waited outside. We have not sold the car. Tosin said he wants to use the car but we told him there is no way we can stay with him in Osun State. I couldn’t stay in his father’s house without doing anything. The car is still at Osun State.
Babatunde Kokumo, Police Commissioner, said the suspects would soon be charged to court.
