Man Machetes 100 Years Old Father To Death For Squandering 70K Of His Business Capital
The Ogun State Community, Social Orientation, and Safety Corps said it had arrested one Matthew Ifeanyi, who allegedly macheted his 100-year-old father, Anthony Nnadike, to death in Olorunda Ijoko in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.
The Commandant of the Corps, Soji Ganzallo, through the Director of Information and Public Relations of the Corps, Moruf Yusuf, made this known in a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday. Ifeanyi was said to have confessed that he took the action when he resigned from his previous job to embark on his private business, but his now-dead father couldn’t provide him with the money he saved with him.
The statement partly read, “The Divisional Command patrol team were after that instructed to rescue the helpless parent, Anthony Nnadike, and to get the son arrested, and they swung into action immediately.“Ganzallo revealed that on getting to the scene, the victim had been rushed down to the nearest general hospital due to the injury sustained and was in critical condition until he was later confirmed dead by the doctor.
“Ganzallo revealed that after restricting arrest, the culprit was apprehended for allegedly murdering his father over his inability to refund the sum of N70,000.00 he entrusted with him on July 22, 2022.”
The suspect has, however, been transferred to the Sango divisional police station for further investigation and likely prosecution.
