Nigerian Man ‘Beats His Own Mother To Death’ During Fight In US

A 34-year-old man, Gabriel Bassey has been arrested in Indianapolis, the U.S state of Indiana, on preliminary murder charges after police say he killed his mother.

According to Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department news release, the accused and his 54-year-old mother, Patricia Bassey, were involved in a fight on Tuesday.

The suspect called 911 on himself and told dispatchers he killed his mother during a fight.

Around 11:20 a.m. on Wednesday, IMPD officers were dispatched to the 8000 block of East 20th Street, where they found Patricia suffering from apparent trauma.

Medics pronounced her dead. The cause of death was blunt force trauma.

When police interviewed Bassey at police headquarters, he confessed to killing his mother.

According to the affidavit, “Gabriel became enraged with his mother after she slapped him during an argument the night before. Shoved his mother onto the sofa and began hitting her in the face… when she fell to the floor face down he continued to assault her.”

Neighbors in the adjoining condos say they didn’t hear any signs of an assault, during which court documents show Gabriel told police he repeatedly kicked his mom in the torso.

Court records claim, “The assault concluded when Gabriel finally realized what he was doing to his mother, stopped and went upstairs to bed… leaving his mother face down but breathing.”

When he woke up on Wednesday the suspect said he “found his mother was in the same position she was the night before, but she was not breathing.”

“This issue is one that does not discriminate,” said Catherine O’Connor with the Julian Center.

O’Connor says while most people think of domestic violence between a husband and wife, crimes involving children and parents are also common.

A search of police records doesn’t show any prior domestic violence history involving the suspect, but O’Connor says there are often warning signs before violence turns deadly.

“I hope big picture folks realize this is a problem that belongs to all of us. They likely know someone in a situation where they need help,” said O’Connor.

“Everyone plays a role in trying to stop it. This is something important for every member of this community. Everyone has a role to play.” he added.

Gabriel was transported to the City-County Building prisoner intake for processing and the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will review the case for a final charging decision.
