At about 3.30pm her four kids came back from school and saw their mother dead they shouted and alerted the neighbours, they  rushed her to the hospital but it was already late because she had lost a lot of blood.
The neighbours got in touch with her husband and he reported the case to the police station and it was immediately investigated. Peter and his friend  was Arrested on 30th September


In a discussion  with Sunday Sun, these are Peter's words;
“I am a member of Young Vikings Confraternity. It was Yerima who initiated me into cultism. I am a welder by profession. I stayed with my aunty in her house for three days. Then the husband dropped me off at Maitama Bridge and gave me N1,000 for transport to return to Maraba. I went to my friend’s house and slept there. I told Yerima, my friend that I just wanted to threaten my aunt and collect N30,000 from her for my house rent.”
Continuing, he said:
“When I got to my aunt’s house, she was angry with me, asking what was my mission in her house. She ordered me to send my friend, Yerima, out of her house. I complied. I asked her to give me N30,000 for my house rent.
We started arguing and she slapped me. A fight broke out. When Yerima came to separate us, she slapped him too. So Yerima brought out knife and stabbed her on the wrist and I took the knife from Yerima and stabbed her at her back. Yerima took back the knife and stabbed her in the stomach.”
Peter who hails from Obi Local Government Area, Benue State explained further that Yerima cupped the mouth of the deceased to prevent her from screaming for help. After escaping with the plasma TV set, he hid it in his brother’s house.
“When I heard the news that my aunt had died, I went to their house to sympathize with them. As I got to Mpape, policemen accosted me, and began questioning me. When I confessed what happened, they arrested me.”
Sunday Sun learnt that the duo attended Aso Primary School, where Yerima took Peter into the Young Vikings Confraternity, a cult group.
Yerima, a native of Gbagyi Local Government Area, Nasarawa State, said that he was provoked to stab the deceased, who slapped him when he tried to separate her and Peter as they were fighting in the room.
Yerima who said that he is an artisan that specialized in the molding of plaster of Paris for interior design of buildings said that they had no intention to kill her, stressing that his reaction was the result of provocation by Salome, who slapped him.
The husband of the deceased, James Idoko, told Sunday Sun how his suspicion of Peter led to the suspect’s arrest. He said:
After my wife died and people started coming on condolence visit, I noticed that Peter, my late wife’s nephew was absent. I asked his twin brother, Godwin Peter, whether Sunday Peter was not aware of the death of my wife. He responded that he was aware of it. I started to suspect him of being behind my late wife’s death. I told the police at Mpape Police Station that I suspected Peter over the death of my late wife.
“On Sunday as Peter was coming to my house, policeman called him aside and interrogated him and he confessed.
“This is a lesson for everybody to be careful about who you trust. I want to appeal to the police to release the corpse of my wife so that we can bury her. I know that she cannot come back to life, but I look up to God to grace to bear this loss. It is avery painful one.”
As at the time of this report, Bello confirmed that the corpse of the deceased was still in the mortuary, for the postmortem to be done and the autopsy report prepared.
He said that the corpse of the deceased would be handed over to the family for burial after the completion of investigation into the case. He also said that the two suspects would accordingly be charged to court for the murder of the Salome, the deceased.
