Shock as teenager murders landlady and family in Abuja

25 April 2016, 06:39

Abuja - An 18-year-old Abuja native is currently being held in police custody after he reported himself for allegedly having killed his landlady as well as several other members of her family.

According to Punch, the suspect, identified only as Sunday, killed the Mama Moses along with her daughter and three grandchildren after threatening that he would deal with them following a dispute.

The incident, which took place in the Bwari LGA of the state, occurred when Sunday locked the family in the house where they had been sleeping for the night and set the residence ablaze, watching as the family suffer while trapped inside.

The suspect, who was living with his parents at the deceased's residence, is alleged to have had a relationship with Mama Moses' daughter, leading him to keep the family at arms length once the romance imploded.

Sunday is reported to have gone straight to officials and disclosed the matter after the incident took place.

An investigation into the matter is currently underway, with the bodies of the deceased having been delivered to a nearby morgue.
