A man has been arrested for allegedly murdering his father and burying him in a shallow grave.
According to the report, the old man had been missing for some days and a search party mounted for him took several days before a shallow grave was discovered in the back of the house on Sunday, March 6.
Traces of blood were said to have been found in the compound and it led to the man's room, lending credence that he must have been murdered and suspicion quickly fell on the son who lives with the father and had a frosty relationship with him.
During interrogation, the son allegedly owned up to killing the father and burying him in the shallow grave. The youths wanted to lynch him but the elders prevailed on them and he was handed over to the police.
