The Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps, known as So-Safe, reported the arrest of Mathew Ifeanyi, a 38-year-old man, for allegedly fatally attacking his 100-year-old father, Anthony Nnadike, with a machete. This incident occurred in the Olorunda area of Eruobodo Ntabo, Ijoko, within the Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.
Ifeanyi is said to have committed this gruesome act due to his father’s failure to provide the N70,000 that had been entrusted to him since July 2022.
Soji Ganzallo, the Commandant of the Corps, made this announcement in a statement released on Wednesday through the Corps’ Director of Information and Public Relations, Moruf Yusuf.
The statement said “on Tuesday, 29th. August, information got to Superintendent Alabi Gafar, the Divisional Officer of the Corps at Alade/Atago/Ntabo Divisional Command that at 11, Ibikunle Street, Diamond Estate, along Olorunda Area, Eruobodo Ntabo, Ijoko in Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area, that a middle-aged man was said to have been attacko his biological father with cutlass”.
Additionally, it was revealed that the Divisional Command’s patrol team received orders to rescue the vulnerable victim and apprehend the son. Upon arriving at the scene, they found that the victim had been urgently taken to the General Hospital due to the severity of his injuries and was in critical condition. Unfortunately, he was later pronounced dead by the attending doctor.
During the initial investigation, Ifeanyi purportedly confessed to the heinous act of killing his father. He stated that his motive stemmed from his father’s inability to repay the sum of N70,000 entrusted to him since July 22, 2022. Furthermore, he admitted that he resorted to this reprehensible act because he had resigned from his previous job with the intention of starting a business, but his father could not provide him with the necessary funds.
Subsequently, the suspect was transferred to the Nigeria Police Force, Sango Divisional Headquarters, for further inquiry and legal proceedings.
