Corporal Thompson Kills Mother For Being A ‘Witch’


When asked about his father, Corporal Thompson said, his father abandoned him and his only brother with their mother about 20 years ago.

The Kaduna State Police Command has arrested an Army Corporal, Charles Thompson, for allegedly killing his mother, Modupe Thompson.


The incident happened on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at their residence in Sabon G.R.A, Kaduna.

Speaking while being paraded at the police headquarters on Thursday, the 30-year-old soldier, who confessed to the alleged culpable homicide of his mother, said he stabbed her to death because she was a witch.

Thompson added that his mother used to turn to a serpent at night.

He said, “I was arrested for culpable homicide, because my mother died in my hands while I was fighting with her. We were fighting as a result of a spiritual dispute; I saw her turning to a serpent severally at night, so, it angered me.

“She was even appearing and disappearing. And when I went into her room, I saw her with a 10-year-old boy running around her. That was what led to the fight.”

He said, “I am presently on sick leave because I’m incapacitated. I was injured, I fell during an attack in Maiduguri, Borno. I was not dismissed; I am still serving. – SMLINKZ ON FB

“We had always had problems, there was no love. She didn’t have love for her children. So, I want to advise parents to always give assistance to their children and speak well about them in public.”
