The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Femi Joseph, said that the suspect has been detained at the State Criminal Investigative Department of the command for further investigation.
He said the reason the suspect’s action is yet unknown and that the incident happened on January 2, 2017. A source narrated that immediately after killing his father, the suspect allegedly parked the deceased’s lifeless body, wrapped it in a cloth and cleaned the blood stains in the room so as not to give room for suspicion that he (deceased) was murdered.
He (the suspect) was alleged to have fled the town immediately after committing the crime. The source added that the family immediately consulted the oracle to expose the killer but the suspect who had allegedly fled the town earlier, showed up and confessed to the crime.
