Ogun: Son Hacks Father To Death For Waking Him Up
A 27-year-old man identified as Ibrahim Sikiru has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly killing his father, Mumuni Ibrahim.
Sikiru was apprehended after a neighbour, Onipanu Sunday, lodged a complaint at the Onipanu divisional headquarters.
Sunday disclosed that the victim, a security guard, had returned home in the morning and met his son (Sikiru) sleeping.
The deceased reportedly asked why his son was still sleeping at that hour of the day.
It was gathered that the son was upset as he grabbed a machete and hacked his father on different parts of the body.
The spokesman of the state police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi told newsmen on Saturday that following the report, the DPO of Onipanu mobilized police operatives to the scene where the suspect was arrested.
Oyeyemi further stated that the victim was rushed to a general hospital for treatment but later passed on.
He noted that the police “strongly suspect” the son to be a cultist because he had no reasonable explanation for his action when interrogated.
Oyeyemi quoted the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, to have ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to the homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation and diligent prosecution.
