A man has reportedly murdered his father after he smashed his head. The police have not named the suspect, but had identified the deceased as Nathaniel Chukwuemerie, 83, a native of Ogidi in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra.
Ebere Amaraizu, a superintendent and spokesperson for the Enugu Police Command, said the incident occurred on May 4. He added that the suspect had smashed the deceased’s head with a pestle “over a yet to be established issue.”
“The suspect has been nabbed although information from a source closer to the place of the incident revealed that before the incident that the suspect had been behaving abnormally suggesting mental illness,” the statement added.
The victim’s corpse had been deposited with the Oji River General Hospital.
