A 20-year-old suspected Yahoo Boy, Daniel Bamidele, was arrested in Ibadan, Oyo State, for viciously attacking his parents.
Daniel allegedly stabbed his parents with a machete on Thursday, January 25, causing chaos to break out in the Apabielesin area.
Titilayo, his mother, was able to flee the house while suffering from serious wounds and sought assistance from people living nearby.
Witnesses who recounted how Daniel, the attacker, attacked his father and mother inconspicuously said Titilayo’s screams prompted bystanders to hurry to the scene, and they were able to disarm Daniel of the machete used in the attack and subdue him.
Daniel was linked to cybercrime, also referred to as the “yahoo business,” and it was revealed that he had used the money he made from this activity to purportedly construct a three-bedroom house.
Daniel said, in a startling turn of events, that his parents knew about his illicit dealings and had even profited from his ill-gotten fortune.
He explained that he had promised to set up a store for his mother, intending to stock it with goods and elevate her to a successful trader once he achieved a significant breakthrough.
Daniel claims that despite his commitment to provide her a business, things escalated when his mother and older brother reportedly conspired to swindle him of a significant amount of N2.5 million.
“I purposely lured my mother from a church programme she was attending, and as soon as we arrived home, I attacked her with a knife and was already inflicting cuts on her body when my father tried to save her from me.
“I attacked my father too because if I had not stabbed both of them, they would have succeeded in killing me.”
Daniel also said that he attacked his mother and father with a knife for giving him a fake name which rendered the magic black soap he got from a white garment church priest useless. He further revealed that he made his elder brother his next of kin in his bank documentation but the same elder brother allegedly had been trying to play smart with his money.
“I am a 200-level student of LAUTECH and I have built a three-bedroom bungalow from the money I made from doing yahoo business. I am angry with my parents, particularly my mother, for giving me a fake name instead of her real name.
“There is a particular black magic soap that I have been using lately. The soap was given to me by the priest of a white garment church named Mathew.
“I was the one who bought a generator for Pastor Mathew’s church around Ona Grammar School in Ogbomosho.
“The soap was meant to bring me good fortune, but there was the need for me to call my mother’s name into it before it could work.
“My mother told me that her name is Titilayo. But when I called the name into the soap, it did not work. Hence, I got angry and decided to stab her.”
However, Daniel’s mother, Titilayo said she did not collect any money from him. She said;
“I was called on the phone to come pick up my son from school at LAUTECH when he started exhibiting mental illness.
“When we got home, his father brought a native medicine home and gave him to use. He slept off after taking the medicine.
“However, when he woke up, he demanded the whereabouts of his phone and I told him I did not take his phone. He landed several blows on me.
“He is a liar; I did not collect any money from him.”
Daniel’s father also accused his wife of knowing everything pertaining to how his son ventured into yahoo business and how he built a house from the money he made from the fraudulent activity.
