PORT HARCOUR—An 18-year-old girl has hacked her mother to death at Rumuchakara village, Choba, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

A source close to the family said a disagreement had ensued between the young lady (names withheld) and her late mother, Wednesday evening, after the mother asked her to prepare dinner for the family.

The source said the girl protested that she would not cook and this was said to have infuriated the mother, who then slapped her.

Vanguard gathered that the girl, in retaliation, picked up a plank and smashed her mother’s head with it. Efforts to save the woman’s life reportedly failed.

A source revealed that the whereabouts of the girl is unknown since the news of her mother’s death broke yesterday.

Leaders of the community are said to have passed a decree barring the young girl from ever returning to the community.

At press time last night, police were yet to comment on the development.
