Ogun So-Safe Apprehends Man For Killing Father Over N70,000

The So-Safe Corps in Ogun State has arrested a 38-year-old man, Mathew Ifeanyi, for allegedly killing his father, Anthony Nnadike, aged 100, over a N70,000 he kept in his care.

NIGERIACRIME gathered that the suspect hacked his father to death with a machete.

Disclosing this on Wednesday, the Commander of the So-Safe Corps, Soji Ganzallo, revealed that the suspect perpetrated the act on Tuesday, August 29, at 11, Ibikunle Street, Diamond Estate, along Olorunda Area, Ntabo, Ijoko in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.

The commander told newsmen that one Superintendent Alabi Gafar, the Divisional Officer of the Corps at Alade/Atago/Ntabo Divisional Command had got information that “a middle-aged man was attacking his biological father with a cutlass.”

The patrol team was said to have been immediately deployed to the scene of the crime to rescue the helpless parent and get the suspect arrested.

The So-Safe commander, however, said, “Sadly, on getting to the scene, the victim had been rushed down to the general hospital due to injuries sustained and was in a critical condition, until he was later confirmed dead by the doctor.”

Ganzallo told journalists that the suspect, after resisting arrest, was later apprehended and interrogated.

The suspect, during the preliminary investigation, “said that the inability of his father to refund the sum of N70,000:00 he entrusted his father with since 22nd July 2022” was the reason for his action.

Ganzallo quoted the man as having confessed that he took the action since he resigned from his previous job to embark on his private business, and his father could not provide him the money.

The So-Safe spokesman, Moruf Yusuf, said the suspect had been transferred to the Sango Divisional Police Headquarters for further investigation and likely prosecution.

Ganzallo added that the incident caused an unrest in the area.
