Co-tenant Slaps Nursing Mother To Death in Benue state

Confusion at the weekend enveloped Madikpo in Makurdi, Benue State when a nursing mother, Monica, died during a fight with her co-tenant, Sewuese. It was learnt that the two women engaged in a fisticuffs over confectioneries their kids were eating and playing with. Sewuese allegedly slapped Monica while the latter died.

Trouble, sources said, started last Friday following a brief discord between Sewuese’s brother whose name could not be ascertained at press time and the victim, who also allegedly slapped the deceased, prompting prolonged quarrel.

The quarrel was reportedly settled when other tenants and neighbours intervened. A witness said the quarrel spilled over to Saturday when the ‘sweet’ the deceased bought for her little baby was allegedly taken from the baby by Sewuese’s kid.

Sources said when the deceased heard the cry of her baby; she rushed in to inquire when Sewuese accosted her. Sewuese allegedly slapped the victim who collapsed and died instantly. But when contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Moses Yamu, said the matter had not been reported to him. Yamu, however, promised to release details to our correspondent when he received the report.


  1. It's a pity. There must hv been a kind of bad blood between them.

  2. That's why I can't be caught dead fighting cos some people are walking corpse.
