She said: “I killed Mama (Madam Maria Igbinedion) to carry her money. She did not offend me.

Mama later died.

Edo State Commissioner of Police, Phillip Ogbadu, revealed that it took time, efforts and money to arrest Dominion, with no fewer than 20 persons first nabbed, before the prime suspect (Dominion) was arrested and she confessed to committing the crime.

Ogbadu stated that being a state crime, the suspects in the high profile murder would soon be charged to court, after thorough investigation.

He said Dominion was being specially worked on as he had earlier interrogated her more than three times, stressing that to every crime, there would be parties.
