  1. This is very sad see what abroad system has turned our children into.
    Trust me if this boy was in Nigeria, he wouldn’t have done this.
    Rest In Peace Tolu Kalejaiye

    • This is a tragedy. Tragedy can happen anywhere as seen in the case of a son who recently murdered his father in Lagos. I have seen a single mother in this same London raise two children one read medicine in Oxford and the other Law in Cambridge. The issue is we never hear of the good news when it concerns black people but ochestrate the negative one. This is no time to speculate about the cause of this tragedy but pray that God will comfort those she left behind. Now let me see how that boy will live with himself for the rest of his life.

    • THIS PROBLEM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SYSTEM, BUT IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE PARENT, WHO TURN THEIR PARENT, SOME OF OUR AFRICANS ABROAD , GET CARRIED AWAY AND BEHAVE LIKE A BASTARDS, COPING OYINBO WHOSE THEIR CLASS IS CALLED, THE COMMONERS, BECAUSE THE COUNTRY HAVE THREE CLASSES, WE HAVE THE COMMONERS , THE MIDDLE CLASS, THE CONSERVATIVES,
      SOME PEOPLE FALL INTO THE CLASS OF THE COMMONERS , WHO ARE INTO DRUGY, AND ALLOW THEIR CHILDREN TO WALK THE STREET BY 10PM , WHERE 9YEARS OLD HAS BEEN SLEEPING WITH A MAN AND EARN MONEY, THEY CALLED THEIR PARENT NAME , AND THEY GROW, THEIR PARENT ARE THEIR SLAVE, CAN YOU IMAGING A TWENTY FIVE YEARS OLD GIRL DO NOT KNOW HOW TO COOK, THE ONLY FOOD SHE KNOWS IS MACDONALD , AND WHEN THEIR MOTHER IS SWEEPING THE FLOOR , THEY RAISED THERE LEG, THIS WAS THE REASONS I TOLD MY SISTER THAT WHY DO YOU TURN YOUR CHILDREN INTO SMALL GOD , SHE THEN YELL AT ME , AND CALLED ME ERANKO , FROM THAT DAY ON SHE REFUSED TO LET ME INTO HER HOUSE , SO I DO NOT BLAME ANY CHILD WHO KILLED THEIR PARENT , BECAUSE THEIR PARENT FORGET THAT CHILDREN ARE SOMEONE ELSE , AND THEY TOO WILL ONE DAY LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES . PLEASE TEACH YOUR CHILDREN PROPERLY SO THAT THEY CAN BE USEFUL TO THEMSELVES IN FUTURE ,THEY ARE NOT YOUR PROPERTY. YOU NEED TO DO YOUR BEST TO LET THEM KNOW THE RIGHT FROM WRONG RIGHT FROM THE AGE OF TWO YEARS.DO NOT SAY THEY ARE STILL TOO YOUNG TO BE CORRECTED. I HAVE SEVEN CHILDREN AND THEY WERE ALL BORN IN THE U.K. I TAUGHT THEM HOW TO SPEAK YORUBA AND THEY ALL KNOWS HOW TO COOK AFRICAN FOOD , AND I AM SO PROUD. IF YOU FAIL YOUR CHILDREN THEY WILL FAIL YOU

  2. rip madam what a wicked world! son killed a woman who brought her into this world.
    Now of what use is such child. He should have been aborted.

    • I live in the UK and I know a lot of mothers who are single and have single headedly raised children who are highly successful. There are also households with both parents with very wayward and irresponsible children. Infact, single mums here put in double effort into ensuring that their children are brought up properly to avoid being blamed by short sighted people like you (JIMMY). The article did not mention that the woman is single. The problem with some Nigerians abroad is that they work 18 hrs a day. They spend all their time moving from one job to the other therefor spend no time at all with the children. The children are left to look after themselves. How will a parent know what their kids are up to if they are not there. Children need responsible adults to guide them on a daily basis. That is why they are kids. When that void is created, they go out to seek something to fill that void and God forbid they find guidance in bad gangs. If you spend all your time working all God given hours so that you can make money to show off how many properties you have or how posh you car is or worse still to send money to relatives in Nigeria who are probably doing better than you are, remember that at the end of the day your children are your wealth. Your children should be your first priority. Other things should come after. Do not get me wrong, I am not blaming this woman. Some kids just turn out horrible despite all efforts. My point is single mums should not be blamed for every crime committed by their kids. Not all fathers are good role models anyway ( other men who live here will confirm that)So stop this single mum bashing. Men, If you are no longer with your wife you can still have relationships with your children and also look after them by keeping an eye on them and please do not give excuses that your former spouses refuse to give you access. The courts are here to enforce that except they find you incapable of being positive role models. I know some chauvinistic males will be screaming their heads off at me on this page but HEY I do not care. This is simply the truth .

  3. @concerned mother,you have spoken well, this abroad of a thing have changed lot of peoples cultures. our culture cant be compared to theirs

  4. @Jimmy, u ve a point there bco our women in mostly England and Ireland always push or walk out of marriage bco the govt of these countries gives them that power. Suppose the father is in that house such can never and will never happened. B4 such got to this stage the boy most have been fighting the woman or will i say beating her.
    May her soul rest in prefer peace.

    • THIS PROBLEM HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH DIVORCE, OR BEING SINGLE OR BEING MARRIED , BUT IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH MOTHERHOOD OR FATHERHOOD, I HAVE GOT SEVEN CHILDREN AND I BROUGHT THEM UP ALONE, WHEN MY HUSBAND DIED ,
      MY LAST TWIN WAS JUST TWO YEARS OLD WHEN MY HUSBAND DIED BY CAR ACCIDENT , SO IT IS THE SAME AS DIVORCE , ONE NEIGHBOR HUSBAND DIED , AND ANOTHER NEIGHBOR HUSBAND DIVORCE HER,
      IT IS STILL THE SAME BECAUSE BOTH FATHERS ARE NOT AROUND , SO DOES IT MAKE THE MOTHER TO STOP CORRECTING THEIR CHILDREN? WHAT ABOUT THOSE CHILDREN WHOSE THEIR PARENT ARE TOGETHER? AND THEY ARE PASTORS AND THEIR DAUGHTERS ARE INTO HOOKER / WHORE , THE PROBLEM WILL FACE IS THAT SOME PARENTS , BE IT SINGLE OR COUPLE, FAIL TO TEACH THEIR CHILDREN THE RIGHT FROM WRONG ,
      THEY HAVE TURNED THEIR CHILDREN INTO SMALL GOD , JUST BECAUSE YOU DIVORCE DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD BRING YOUR BOYFRIEND TO THE HOUSE , AND LET YOUR CHILDREN SEE THAT YOU ARE IN THE ROOM WITH A STRANGER HAVING SEX ,
      IT MEANS THE CHILDREN WILL NOT RESPECT YOU ,
      YOU ALSO WEAR SHORT SKIRT AS YOUR CHILDREN , AND YOU ARE DISCUSSING YOUR NUMEROUS BOYFRIEND WITH YOUR DAUGHTER ,AND YOU LET YOUR DAUGHTER CALLED YOU NAME , SO WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN? , IT MEANS YOU HAVE PUT YOURSELF DOWN SO LOW , BEING A MOTHER , YOU ARE A SHIT,
      I HAVE GOT MY NEIGHBOR , THEY ARE COUPLES, THEY ARE NOT DIVORCE, BUT THEY LIVE TOGETHER , BUT HIS WIFE USE TO TELL ME THAT , THEY ONLY LIVE TOGETHER , BECAUSE OF CHILDREN ,FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS. BUT THEY ARE NOT TOGETHER AS HUSBAND AND WIFE ANYMORE ,
      SO, THE HUSBAND BRING IN A GIRLFRIEND , AND HIS WIFE BRING IN A BOYFRIEND, TO THE HOUSE , AND THE CHILDREN ARE SEEING ALL THESE THINGS SO MAY I KNOW WHAT WE SHOULD CALL THIS PROBLEM?

  5. Being a single mother is not a crime, buh it depends on ow U̶̲̥̅̊ brought ur kid up. Dis is a sad story.may her soul rest in perfect peace. And let justice be don on dat bastard of son!

  6. I dont want to speculate, but i have a Good advance to single mothers and divorcees. If you are in any means belong to this group and you have a grownup son, please avoid bringing your male friend or friends in the presence of your son. As i said i dont know the cause of this, but i know that some male grownup children doesnt like any other man near their mother, accept their own father.I have seen where a boy attacked the mother and her lover b/c of this. This particular case i am talking, the woman’s lover paid the price with his life.

  7. This is one msjor problem that our black people especially from Nigeria will be experiencing as our culture, child training and discipline has been neglected. i live in UK and can boldly say most of the black parent are busy pursing money and visa instead of taking care of thier children. Family value and marriages have broken down and majority of our women are now single mothers thinking that is the thing in vogue. May God has mercy upon this generation.

  8. asuming dat boi was naija and pass 2ru some hardship small eee. He for no do dat kind thing , d woman go don pamper dat boi wel wel na him dey make him head de sweal up

  9. Those of us who live outside the country have been observing the bad behaviors of small percentage of first generation Nigerians in various countries. While most african children overseas are well behaved, a few are
    are problem children engaged in life of crimes.
    These children totally lack good manners and respect for adults, never listen to their parents and always want more than their parents can afford.
    I once witnessed a 19 year old girl slapped her mother for refusing to buy her a new car. She rejected the 5 years old car her mother bought her. She has not worked a day in her life yet she was demanding a new car.
    Today, that same girl is in jail for a felony she committed with some of her friends.
    The root of this tragedy could be traced to the lack of parental supervision when these children were very young. Often parents have to work at two jobs and also attend school. The children are left to raise themselves. Sometimes, the parents do not know who their children have as friends.
    I hasten to add that this is not only a Nigerian community problem. Other African children mostly from Somalia suffer from the same problem.

  10. Hey only God know the best who know if thos woman as don somthing like dat to her parent in the pass as well , coz is not the only dis boi that is in uk

  11. Some comment here are irrelevant crimes and violence are every way not only in london or US even in Nigeria is happening here nd there jst of resent a brother killed his fellow bros here in naija and a son set their house on fire burnt his parent nd others pple over nd argument so is every way, the world is getting worse nd worse every day bcos we are still under satan’s ruler ship,we jst need to pray 4 God kingdom to come on earth cos that will be a permanent solution ot mankind problem

  12. Is it not better to leave our children in Nigeria for a better cultural influence of our environment where for a child to curse a parent is considered a taboo than in Europe where they are exposed to those vices.

  13. She kinda brought dis on herself, did u kno dat dis woman has not bin communicatin wit her family 4 yrs…she got 2 london and started actin lyk a white lady..nw all she got is prolly her second son who wasnt mentioned at all, divorced husby and frds…frds she met abroad. Lesson learnt, dont shut out ur family cos u r livin abroad…u myt need em 4 sumtin, like sendin ur almost wayward son bak 2 nigeria 2 straighten him up…it’s so sad dat sum of her relatives got 2 kno 2ru her lawyer and d internet 2 confirm d story.

    • So this woman divorced her husband to take on boyfriends? A lot of Nigeria and other Foreign women do same thing here in America. Even in Nigeria it is happening now. Sign of end times. Only God can save us.

  14. let us not be justified pls this is a crazy world things can happen how did we know that she was a single mother I have seen a boy killed his father, sister, brother cousin etc not bcos it was his mother children of now and days may God be with them and save the from iniquity Amen.and another thing is this I don’t know if to run out of this UK for Yoruba pple the worst is when it happens people will be calling Nigerians

  15. d blame should b on abroad,it we d parent,even here in naija,it happens,all we nid do is train our kids d best way we can and make God d head of our home….he no get were bad tin no dy happen oh

  16. In this type of situation anyone closes to the deceased could be suspected, I am sure the police will not relent to uncover this misery.
    At the end of the day it is most likely that the culprit could be someone closer to the deceased.
    That is why Julius Cesar asked God to save and protect him from his friends but to let him take care of his enemies personally. May the soul of this deceased rest in perfect peace, may God help her immediate families to bear this great loss.

  17. All of una frm A-Z don open una mouth one by 1 yan una “what i think”. Truth is the story no de elaborate …cud it b d boi d mad or hm muda na 4ucker or beta still hm fada divorce hm moda b/cos she b cassanova?mehn…. dia r millions of questionz begging 4 ansa’s…..the unsaid classified truth from d scenario is a lesson 2 all men;please note, that in 2days society dia are more organised career Ashawo’s or call gal’s(even ndi nma kwa!)if u like,who though are lawyers or accountants yet they do the unimaginables…Accountant my foot!plzzzz dia is more 2 dis case than meet the eyes!

    • You r so stupid for making that irrelevant comment. The poor lady is dead for crying out loud. Regarding ashawo business, I am confident that the Ibos are very advanced in that area.

  18. @concerned mother a man trained by my late uncle working in National assembly use cutlass on his late father in 1997 when he was alive, so its not all about environment, its about evil of man kind.

  19. it depend on the training you give your children when they are young.the bible say teach your child the way he or she should go so that when he or grow they will not depart from it.the lord almighty will not give us the children that will kill us ijn.

  20. Sad day! Remember the Fernades brothers(twins) in LA (United States) shot
    the parents cold blooded and whent shopping with the parents credit cards.
    A woman in UK was recently remanded in jail for sending her daughter to Nigeria without UK’s approval (she refused to withdraw her back to UK, because she considered her a public nuisance). Having been with Law Enforcement Community in the last decade, my heart bled daily when I turned my computer on and found kids with Nigerian names languished in our cell-blocks. What a heavy price!!!

  21. This is a deeply saddening issue.
    But to blame it on the system is just wrong.
    I am born and raised in London by my parents, I am Yoruba… I know where I am from and always remember my upbringing.

    I also have many friends who are raised in single homes here and are well behaved/responsible.

    sometimes we look for something/someone to blame when we don’t understand… however, in most cases it is solely the individual who is at fault.

    Ignorance is not the way forward, for any of us.

    I do not understand what lead him to do such, but may God help us all.
    May her soul rest in peace.
