A middle-aged man has been arrested after he slashed his stepmother’s throat in Rivers state.
The deceased was picking beans when she was attacked by her stepson. Her scream alerted her biological son and he ran to the scene to find his mother bleeding from the neck and his stepbrother close by.
The son then raised alarm and neighbours gathered. The police were also contacted.
The suspect has been arrested and the motive for the attack has not been revealed.
