Two-time former Edo State governor, Lucky Igbinedion, has lost his mother, Mrs. Maria Oredola Igbinedion.

Igbinedion was the governor of Edo State from 29 May 1999 to 29 May 2007.

According to reports, Maria from Usen in Egor Local Government Area of Edo State, died on Thursday, December 2, at her home in Ugbo, Benin-City, the State capital at the age of 85.

Unfortunately, the Octogenarian did not die of old age neither was she nursing an ailment. She died through the dastardly act of one of her maids employed to live with and attend to her needs.

It was gathered that the maid strangled her in her home, ransacked the house for jewelries and money, and then disappeared into thin air.

According to The Will, Mrs. Maria had remained confined to a wheelchair since her 80th birthday, unable to move around, just managing to stay alive.

She managed to survive the dark days of the Covid-19 pandemic only to be killed by a hired hand entrusted to take care of her.

Efforts are being made to track and apprehend the killer thief who is reportedly from Cross River State.

Security forces have been activated to fish her out and the late woman’s children have vowed to stop at nothing to track her, even if it means going to her village to arrest her family members.

Mrs. Maria was married to Chief Gabriel Igbinedion, the Esama of Benin Kingdom as his first wife. She is survived by children, grandchildren, and great grand children.
