Share This

By ERASMUS IKHIDE --- A 13-year-old boy has allegedly murdered his biological father in Benin city, Edo State.

The incident happened at Egbon Estate in Evbuotubu in Benin.

The 79 years old father, Osariakhi Oronsaye, had earlier raised an alarm a week ago that his son wanted to kill him.

It was gathered that the policemen from Evbuotubu police station were invited to arrest the young boy but on their way to the police station, the late father appealed to the police to leave the boy alone.

However, the young boy carried out the dastardly act as he allegedly axed his father to death while still sleeping in the early hours of Sunday, 20 June 2021.

Standard Gazette gathered that he used the axe to strike his father on the head, killing him on the spot.

The secondary school boy is now cooling his head at the police station in Evbuotubu, where he is expected to be transferred to the homicide department of the Edo state police command in Benin.

Some family members interviewed described the incident as tragic. “we have not known Abubakar to be having a mental problem, but we are shocked with his action now”.

The police in Edo state is yet to make a statement on the incident.

Some observers said the 13 years old suspect is a minor, but the boy might be charged to juvenile court.
