Son on the run allegedly for stabbing father to death

There was panic and grief at Masaka village in Karu LGA of Nasarawa State on Monday after a man, Tunde Badejo, stabbed his father, Badejo Idowu, to death over claim to a land belonging to the family.

According to the Vanguard, Tunde had been pestering his father for a portion of the land for over a year, while the deceased’s wife, Madam Tolani Badejo, said her husband had asked Tunde to give him time to apportion the land fairly among other family members.

The woman said: “He had been on my husband’s neck for the land since last year. So during their last argument on Monday, he pulled out a knife and stabbed his father several times on the head, neck, chest, hands and legs which killed him. I raised alarm and he fled.”

The second son of the deceased, Ayomide Badejo, said the matter had been reported to the police while his father’s remains had been deposited in a mortuary.
