Kwara State Man Kills Father
Hassan was said to have fled to Kaduna State after committing the crime at Ajibesin Area, Oko-Olowo, Ilorin, on August 5, 2022.
Spokesman of the command, Ajayi Okasanmi, while parading Hassan on Thursday at the police headquarters, said the suspect was arrested following a report made by his sister, Aishat.
He said, “On August 5, 2022, one Aishat Ibrahim reported that her 90-year-old father, Sabi Ibrahim, a retired army corporal to the police command, was missing. The circumstances of his disappearance elicited suspicion hence the resolve of the command to get to the root of it.
“Investigation into the matter led to the arrest of one Ibrahim Hassan, a biological son of the missing old man. During investigation, the suspect confessed to having administered paracetamol injection mixed with other substances on his father, who became weak and dizzy immediately after the injection.
“This he did after coming from the bank where he took his father to renew and collect his ATM card. The suspect, thereafter, took the father on a motorcycle he borrowed and conveyed his father to an isolated uncompleted building and strangulated his father.”
The police spokesman further said, in a bid to conceal the crime, Hassan dug a shallow grave where he buried his father after dispossessing him of the Wema Bank ATM card.
The police image maker added that the suspect escaped to Kaduna State and started withdrawing from his late father’s account.
“He withdrew a total sum of N59,000. He (Hassan) stated further that the purpose of killing his father was to dispossess him of the ATM card since he already knows the pin. He also sold the borrowed motorcycle and eloped to Kaduna State where he was eventually arrested.”
Okasanmi said that the ATM card and the stolen motorcycle had been recovered by the police, adding that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
