A 34 year old man, Solomon (surname withheld) has murdered his 11 year old son in a bid to correct him for a major error.
He came home on the fateful day and found his son having s*x with his younger sister right in his bedroom. Overcome by anger, he rushed out, picked up a stick beat him severely until the little boy went into convulsion and lost consciousness the next day.
Neighbours of the family rushed him to Gwarinpa General Hospital where he gave up the ghost.
Lamenting his actions, he said he has been receiving bad reports about his son, the height of it is that he started sleeping with his 8 year old sister.
Solomon who hails from Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area of Enugu State said: “ I wept when the doctor told me that my son had died. I didn’t have the intention to kill my son. I was trying to correct him because of the immoral act he committed. How can I beat my son to death? I couldn’t believe what I saw. I only acted in anger; I never wanted to kill my son.”
The FCT commissioner of Police has said the matter would be charged to court.
