January 31st, 2014 – Nigerian Man Killed His Mother In Baltimore Maryland, USA: Isaac Anya Ojiabo Stabbed Mum To Death

The middle-aged Nigerian man pictured above has murdered his own mother. He is currently in police detention awaiting charges for second degree murder.

Read the detail story below:

A wealthy Nigerian family based in the United States of America has suffered a very horrible tragedy following a disaster that happened on Wednesday at their family house in Maryland.

The 20-year-old Nigerian man identified as Isaac Anya Ojiabo allegedly stabbed his mother to death on Wednesday.

According to Police detectives, Isaac made his escape in the family white Lexus SUV moment after killing his mum. He was caught at the intersection of Putnam Road and Crouse around 4:30 am in the morning.

Isaac Ojiabo Jr is currently in Police detention. He is scheduled to be charged with 1st & 2nd degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

Police disclosed that the lifeless body of Isaac’s mother, Joy Ojiabo was discovered on the 2nd floor of their mansion around 5pm on Wednesday by her husband, Mr Anya Ojiabo after returning from work.

Upon discovering the lifeless body of his wife, he called 911.

According to police detectives, Ojiabo’s neighhour said the family moved into the area approximately six years ago.

In 2013, police were called into their house 3 times for domestic disturbances involving the late Joy Ojiabo and her son, Isaac who eventually killed her.

After receiving 911 calls from their neighbours, police visited the house in March, September and December 2013 warning them to reduce their noise.

“Just because we’re there a half-dozen times doesn’t mean we’re going to arrest anyone, nor it is indicative that this young man was going to do this,” . said a police official

“I think there had been arguments between the parents and the children,” “Someone in the neighborhood told me there had been arguments.” – said Ojiabo’s next door neighbour

The suspect, Isaac graduated from Fallston High School last year. He worked at a local Subway fast food restaurant. His mother, Joyce was an attorney.

The wealthy couple, Anya and Joy Ojiabo bought their 6100 Sq-ft house from Toll Brothers (a builder) in November 2007. They reportedly paid $1,032,847 for the mansion.

Reacting to Joy Ojiabo’s demise, many Nigerians said Isaac would have been a better boy if his parents had sent him to Nigeria to learn culture.

This is so so sad! May her soul rest in perfect peace!

    This is why is important for every Nigerian kids especially the ones showing signs of violence to be repatriated home for training.
    Mothers or Fathers send your kids home for their future.
    Abroad system is spoiling the mind of these kids.
    The violent video games they are playing is teaching them how to kill.
    Even demonic possession happens thru all these latest gadgets.

    Point of correction.. This boy is not a Nigerian. No Nigerian trained child would ever stab his/her parent. This is only done in America where Man or Woman weds animal or same sex marriage. He should be jailed there and not sent to Nigeria.

    Its not the fault of the boy its from the parent of that boy they were loose towards him, or maybe the child was denied some right.

      Shantel from your comments it shows you are not Nigerian nor do you have any clue about rooted discipline & culture. A child has no rights whatsoever under his parents roof neither do you have any right to take a life. This is why 80% of these kids are in jail, cos they think the world owes them something.

    My dearest sympathy to the deceased. But I must say,this 20 years old good for nothing idiot is a waste of breathe! I will also blame the parents of this boy. This boy is nigerian,I do not care if he is in born in the states! He has been too pampered and disgustingly spoilt! At 20, he finished his high school and now work for a fast food restaurant! He is not fighting for his own survival but relying on his parent money,cars and good things. The. Parent of this boy caused this calamity because they did not discipline him from a very young age. He seems a person who do not have any moral and manners.
    They should have shppied by boat to Nigeria for vacation. And there he should remain till he learns!
    Waste of breathe! Smmh . Parent please teach your children. Do not treat them like Mrs winterhorn treat Damon,her son but discipline them like a true African!

    Even some parents will turn against their children and children against parents when the end time comes. We simply need to keep praying for our children despite where they are, trained in Africa or overseas. What will happen will happen but with prayer, some evil can be pervased. Rest in peace Joy. Also slowly and painfully rest in peace in jail too killer.

    February 1, 2014 at 3:36 AM

    @ shantel peace, im sorry you probably not an African to have made such comment. So because the parent denied the boy any sort of privilege would have warranted him to kill his Mother? That’s totally heartless.

    It is a pity, who knows? I don’t know what to say. Who knows if this boy is under a spell in order to punish the parents, or whether the fault is from the parents or the boy. Everyone should know that no matter what kind of training u gave to ur child if the Lord does not watch the city, the watchmen are wasting their time staying up to watch. Its time for us to stop pursuing dollar and sin and start praying for our families cos the devil is always fighting against the children of God. R.I.P. my sister n may God console the family u left behind. Hmmm

      Adaeze, God bless u real good! Folks u have forgotten that enemies can attack happy and successful home just to cause them so much pain. We all agree that killing ones mom is very strange especially by a boy, male kids love their moms so much! I have four sons and two daughters so I am speaking from experience. I want to address this more from the Spiritual angle, this is a satanic manipulation! The enemy is at work here! Solution: Seek God,s intervention on time by raising them up with Reverential Fear for God, get them good motivational books like Gifted Hands by Ben Carson, Pray Unceasingly for them, and take them for deliverance prayers to certified churches like Mountain of Fire & Miracles, RCCG etc. Children are a Blessing & A Special gift from God, if we are having difficulty moulding them, we should humbly run back to the Giver- (God).
      May Joy,s soul rest in peace and may God comfort this family at this trying period. A huge loss indeed!

    This is very very sad but if you read the story, you will realize that Ojiabo Sr was at work and only returned 5pm the next day. Why live in a house that does not allow you live a normal life?
    Africans in the diaspora have a problem with Identity crises. I am an African in America and well capable of living in those types of homes but the cost to your well being and that of your kids can be deadly. People spend endless hours driving and less time sleeping in the mansion and this boy must have had wayyyy too much time to be trained by TV, Video games and sorts.

    Is there a problem why people cannot live modest lives and spend this money taking vacations? I am a firm believer of at least 9 hours sleep,3 vacations a year and restfull weeke ends. Is anyone with me. I just cannot sleep when others are awake or stay awake when others are sleeping except its jet lag.

    I will understand if your name is Beyonce,Michael Jackson,Aliko Dangote,Oprah etc. My point is, these houses are taking a toll of African who really want to show off their hi end lifestyles.
    When we were ready to buy a house, I made sure it was manageable and I settled for a townhouse. I can understand having these homes in Africa because cost of maintenance is not a problem but in the US, trust me when I say majority of those owners don’t sleep. I have seen many lose those homes to banks because they get overwhelmed. Vacation is not a common word and sleep is a total stranger. Shoooo

    Read the story again. Poor lady was preparing to go to work,got into a fight, got killed, husband only discovered next day at 5pm?
    Jeeeeeee, Please.. No body should ever give birth to their own killer any where in the world. I can imagine his naming ceremony 20 years ago not knowing it was the day they were supposed to start weeping.
    Lastly, my heart still goes out to dad,the entire family and the boy who will probably prefer death at this point. With regards to using a knife, it is just difficult to stab oneself or he would have done it. If he had a gun, I am sure he would have killed himself too.
    Did he not have other siblings? Who was the mansion housing?
    Ahhhhhhhhh, Africans. Make I go jare.

    My condolences to the Family at this most difficult time. It is difficult to appoint blame as to why this sad event took place, as we do not have the facts. But one thing I have to say is that parenting culture of Nigerians as to change to reflect the World we live in today. The comments here are sad reflection of our society, void of reason or logic, but overflowing in religious dogma. Not one person has mentioned the possibility of the son having mental health issues or coming from an abusive upbringing that is so prevalent in our culture. Many parents come to the civilise World where parenting is about talking to the child and letting them Learn the consequences of one’s actions. Rather than adopting this method, many African parents stick to the old culture of raising kids, which pretty much is about verbally and physically abusing them, all in the name of training. The sadness is that many are destroyed by it. The abuse we took growing up can`t be accepted by the younger generation, because they are a lot more expose to its meaning than we were. Raise kids with love, learn to reason and dialogue with them and above all spend good quality time together, u will reduce the chances of them turning bad. In Nigeria the kids are also rebelling against abusive upbringing, time is changing. What kids need is love and attention that all the money in the World can`t buy.
