Victor Akinwa, just 23-year old is going to spend some time in prison because he allegedly killed his father Justus, by pounding him with a pestle.
According to prosecutors, Victor committed the crime in November 2021 on Basic road Idanre, in Ondo state.
What led to this painful exit in the hands of his son was not immediately clear but according to the police prosecutor, Mr. Obadasa Ajiboye, Victor allegedly hit his father in the head, until he died.
According to the prosecution, the offences contravene sections 316 and 319 of the Criminal Code, Cap. 37, Vol. 1 Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006.
Ajiboye therefore urged the court to remand the defendant in a custodial centre pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.
The Magistrate, Mr. Damilola Sekoni, remanded the defendant in the Olokuta Custodial Centre pending legal advice, while he adjourned the case till March 31, 2022, for mention.
