Just In: 21-year old suspected drug addict, beats father to death

A 21-year old suspected drug addict, identified as Muhammed Yusuf, has allegedly beaten his father to death.


Fresh Angle International can report that the incident happened yesterday, Wednesday September 8, at the back of St. Mary Primary School, Lokoja in Kogi State.


The deceased, Alhaji Ibrahim Yusuf, was in his late 70s.


Our Kogi State Correspondent gathered that Muhammed Yusuf, allegedly refused to further his education, after secondary school, despite efforts by his late father to make him advance his education.


An eyewitness, who identified herself as Bello Nana, told Your Soaring International Tabloid: “I am their neighbour, the boy has been misbehaving since yesterday morning, in which I (sic) told the father that we should go to barrack and carry soldiers so that we can pick him up.


"I left for work around 4pm yesterday and I am supposed to close by 12am, but I closed by 10pm. When I came in, I was knocking the gate, but nobody opened it. When I came in with my key inside, I said Baba please open the door for me, but the boy replied that Baba is not around.


"I asked him, where has Baba been to? And I know that Baba does not go out when it is six o'clock. He always lock his door. When I came in, I saw him in Baba’s room and Baba don't normally allow him to enter his room. Immediately I called my fiancée, telling him that this boy has killed his father, because what is he doing in Baba room and baba is not around. 


"Then he called Baba’s number but Baba’s number was switched off. I now went to the Police station and we came with SARS to arrest him. When we entered the room, Baba was in a pool of blood, still breathing, that was how we rushed him to the hospital. This morning, (Thursday September 9) we heard the news that Baba is dead”.


The Police Public Relations Officer, Kogi State Command, PPRO, DSP William Ovye Aya, confirmed the incident to Our Kogi State Correspondent earlier today and said he was yet to get details as at 12.40pm when this report was published.


The suspect was in the custody of the Nigeria Police Force, A Division Lokoja in Kogi State, as at press time.
