Ifeanyichukwu Anadike, a 38-year-old man from Imo State, has killed his father over a plantain tree.
The incident occurred in the Olorunda community, Ijoko, Sango, Ogun State.
The motive behind the gruesome act was believed to be a financial dispute.
Anadike had entrusted his father with N70,000, but his father allegedly refused to return the money, leading to a conflict.
The confrontation escalated when Anadike argued with his father over a plantain tree in their backyard, resulting in his father threatening to cut it down.
In a horrifying turn of events, Anadike attacked his father with a cutlass, leading to his father’s tragic death.
“I gave him N70,000, but he refused to return it to me. I wanted to use the money to start a business, but he refused to give it to me and threatened to cut down the plantain tree.
”So, I just picked up a cutlass and started hitting him in the head.”
The Ogun State Police Command subsequently arrested the suspect.
