Son Butchers Father To Death In Lagos

A boy named Arinze Agwanze reportedly butchered his father to death, after which he set the corpse ablaze to cover up his evil act.

The incident which happened at 16 Ikogba Street, Monkey Village, in Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State, has left residents of the area speechless as they have no idea what transpired between father and son that led to the crime.

However a neighbour who pleaded anonymity told Daily Sun, that Arinze has always been stubborn. On the day of the incident, his father, Mr Agwanze who was suffering from stroke had sent him on an errand but instead of doing his father’s bidding, he was busy playing with his phone.

Angered over this, his father was said to have smashed the phone, an action which infuriated Arinze causing him to retaliate. He also smashed his father’s phone and as if that was not enough, he picked a cutlass which he used to inflict injuries on his father. When he realized his father was dead, he quickly set the house on fire with his father’s body still inside so as to cover up his crime. He then went into hiding to avoid the wrath of of relatives and resi­dents.

It was the flames that attracted neighbours to the scene and when they got there, they found the deceased with his skull ripped open and blood gushing out inside the burn­ing house.

The neigbours however, claimed that Arinze is mentally challenged, adding that before the ugly incident, they had seen him at noon burning some family members’ cloths downstairs before moving upstairs to spread the entire house with petrol and set the house on fire while his father was in a pool of his blood.

One of Arinze’s siblings said, “I don’t believe whatever Arinze is say­ing to defend this tragedy that befell our household. At a young age, he had brain damage and it is not everybody that knows. It is only us members of his family that are aware of his situation. Whenever he gets upset, it’s always uncontrollable. It comes to him in a flash like an evil spirit. That he claimed that our father offended him is the one thing I don’t believe.”

The residents and family members of the deceased had deposited his body at a mortuary, but the next day, they took the body to hi village in Awka, Anambra State for proper burial.
