Sources close to the family said the Octogenarian was strangled by her maid who ransacked her home for jewelry and money before disappearing into thin air.

The source said, “Maria had remained confined to a wheelchair since her 80th birthday, unable to move around. Efforts are being made to track and apprehend the killer thief who is reportedly from Cross River State.

“Any amount, I repeat, any amount will be paid for information leading to the arrest of this girl. She is a murder suspect and is wanted by the police and Benin people.”

Efforts to seek confirmation from the State Police Command spokesman, SP Kontongs Bello failed, as his phone was switched off at the time of filing this report.

Maria Oredola was the first wife of the Esama of Benin Kingdom, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion. She is survived by her husband, former Governor, Lucky Igbinedion, Bright Igbinedion, Charles Igbinedion and Mabel Amadin and many grandchildren.

Meanwhile, a Nigerian girl has narrated how she escaped death by faking madness after the alleged killing of two other Nigerian housemaids in Saudi Arabia.
