A 31-year-old man identified as Nicodemus Ignatius has been arrested by the police in Adamawa State for allegedly beating his 75-year-old father to death.

Nicodemus, who hails from Unguwan Bistel in Song town, Song Local Government Area, carried out the act on March 3, 2022, shortly after returning from a drinking joint.

Nicodemus had sometimes in November last year threatened to kill the father, resulting in his arrest by the police. But the father, out of sympathy, sued for the release of his son from police custody.

“But the 75-year-old Ignatius, sensing danger and afraid of the possibility of his son setting the house on fire, jumped out through the window to escape. He was unaware that his son had since armed himself with a stick.

“The suspect, who was wielding the stick, pounced on his father and hit him with the stick, breaking his head and resulting in his untimely death.”

The suspect, who was reported to the police after the crime, confessed to killing the father under the influence of marijuana.

Nicodemus, who could not give any coherent explanation for the murder of his father, said, ” I smoked Indian hemp on that fateful day and bitterly regret my action.”
