Son machetes 100-year-old father to death in Ogun


The Ogun State Community, Social Orientation, and Safety Corps announced the arrest of Matthew Ifeanyi, who allegedly macheted his 100-year-old father, Anthony Nnadike, to death in Olorunda Ijoko in the state’s Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area.

The Corps’ Commandant, Soji Ganzallo, made the announcement on Wednesday through the Corps’ Director of Information and Public Relations, Moruf Yusuf.

Ifeanyi was claimed to have admitted to the action when he quit from his prior position to start his own business, but his now-dead father couldn’t supply him with the money he had 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.
