Thamesmead man threatens to kill his mum after he’s asked to clean the toilet

    A man grabbed his mother around the throat and told her to “write her own will” after she asked him to clean the toilet at his sister’s South East London home.

    Adebanjo Adeyemi, 26, admitted two counts of assault by beating and two counts of criminal damage at Bromley Magistrates’ Court.

    He went on a “rampage” over who should do the cleaning, saying his sister should do it since she “left it in that state”, reports the Daily Star.

    Adeyemi then grabbed his mum by the throat, and threatened her during the incident, which took place last August in Thamesmead.

    Bromley Magistrates’ Court heard he repeated to his mother Florence Ikwueme: “I will kill you, I have told you I will kill you.”

    Prosecutor Sudara Weerasena said: “She says his muscles were tensing and he was shouting at her. She asked him to leave and she tried to reason with him.

    “He has replied ‘you are not fit to be a mother. Before I kill you go and write your will’.”

    Ms Ikwueme moved into the bedroom and Adeyemi’s sister, Adeolu Adeyemi, became involved in the argument.

    Ms Ikwueme asked Adeolu to call the police and Adeyemi “ripped the television from the wall and smashed it into the mirror”.

    He then raised it above his head and said: “I’m going to hit you” before bringing it down “with force” in his mother’s direction.

    Prosecuter Sudara Weerasena said: “Fortunately his mother is able to dodge the TV and it doesn’t actually make contact with her.

    “The words she used to describe this is ‘on a rampage’. He has struck his sister several times and his mother goes to the balcony with his sister.”

    As his sister called 999, Adeyemi threw her phone off the balcony, the smashing of the phone was heard on the recording of the call, it was said.

    Adeyemi then told both: “Get a security guard, I will come back and kill you”.

    In a statement Ms Ikwueme said: “I just want him out of my life and for him to sort himself out. I want a restraining order so I don’t have to see him again.

    Miss Adeyemi said: “I have been stressed as a result and suffering paranoia he will show up and do these things again, like attacking me and my mum and ruining things in my house.

    “I’m now extra cautious making sure doors are locked. I have had nightmares about him acting that way again.

    “Our relationship is rocky and unstable and uncertain. I felt like had to walk on eggshells around him.”

    She added: “Our relationship has always been bad as there have been incidents when he has gone on a rampage and hit me before, it has been particularly bad over the last few years.

    “Due to his behaviour that day I was scared what he might do to us.”

    Adeyemi, of Gravesend, Kent, was bailed for a pre-sentence report to be prepared and will be sentenced on March 3.
