The 33-year-old man, Segun Ogunlusi, who allegedly killed his mother, Abimbola Ogunlusi, on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, has explained why he committed the crime.
Ogunlusi claimed he decided to cut short the life of his mother because she was persistently asking him for sex.
It will be recalled last week that Ogunlusi killed the 60-year-old mother and buried her in a soakaway.

The suspect was paraded at the Ogun State Police Command headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, on Tuesday by the state Police Commissioner, Ahmed Iliyasu on Tuesday.
Daily Post reports that the incident occurred at No. 16, Oketunde Street, Molatori, Ogijo, Sagamu Local Government Area of the state.
Speaking with newsmen during the exercise, the suspect said he was provoked by his mother’s alleged incessant demand for sex.
“I killed my mother because she has been demanding sex persistently from me. She said if I had sex with her, I would be free.
“On a particular Tuesday morning when two of us were at home, she was in the kitchen. I walked up to her and stabbed her in the stomach and she died.
“I poured kerosene on her corpse in a bid to burn her, but the corpse did not catch fire. Later, I dumped the corpse in a soakaway.”
Segun, however, looked remorseful, and said he regretted his action.
“I regret everything I did,” he said.
