A suspected 21-year-old drug addict identified as Muhammed Yusuf has beaten his father to death in Kogi State.

The incident happened at the back of St Mary Primary School, Lokoja, on Wednesday evening.

Saga Gist gathered that the deceased, identified as Alhaji Ibrahim Yusuf, was in his late 70s.

The suspect is a secondary school certificate holder who had vehemently refused to further his education despite effort put in place by his father.

An eyewitness, who identified herself as Bello Nana, told our correspondent that: “I am their neighbor. The boy has been misbehaving since yesterday morning so I told the father that we should go to the barracks and use soldiers so that we can pick him up.

“I left for work around 4pm yesterday and was supposed to close by 12am but I closed by 10pm. When I came in,I was knocking on 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? And I know that baba does not go out when it is six o’clock. He always locks his door. When I came in, I saw him in baba’s room, and baba doesn’t normally allow him to enter his room. Immediately I called my fiancee, telling him that this boy has killed his father because what is he doing in baba’s room and baba is not around.

“Then he called Baba number but Babe number was switched off. I now went to the Police station, and we came with SARS to arrest it. 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, we heard the news that baba is dead. Bello Nana.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), DSP William Ovye Aya, confirmed the incident on Thursday.

Aya said he is yet to get details of the incident.

The suspect is in custody of the Nigeria Police Force, A Division, Lokoja, Kogi State.
