A 23-year-old man, one Saidi Musa Elemosho, has allegedly macheted his father, one Chief Musa, the Elemosho of Share Land in the Ifelodun local government area of Kwara state, to death for cursing him without any reason while in the sitting room.
The suspect was dragged before Magistrate Muhammed Dauki for the offence of culpable homicide.
The First Information Report (FIR) said that Saidi got annoyed as a result of his father’s unpleasant words, attacked him with a cutlass on the head, hitting him several times till he died, and later escaped to a mountain in Share.
The police prosecutor, Sergeant Abdullah Sanni, informed the court that the matter is not ordinarily bailable because it is a culpable homicide, urging the court to consider the motion ex parte attached to the FIR and order the defendant to be kept in the correctional facility centre.
Magistrate Dasuki, in his short ruling, ordered Saidi’s remand while the matter is adjourned to January 9, 2024.
