Son stabs father to death for correcting him

A son from hell has allegedly stabbed his father to death for daring to correct him.

A 25-year-old former student who was dismissed from the University of Lagos, Oluropo Tifase, has allegedly stabbed his father, Moses Tifase, to death because the father tried to talk to him about living a purposeful life instead of wasting away on irrelevant things.

Olurope, according to close family sources, has been a source of heartache for his family and all efforts to lead him in the right path proved abortive, culminating in him killing his father.

The incident which occurred at Mile 2 Estate on the outskirts of the Lagos metropolis last weekend, has thrown into serious confusion while the suspect is being held at the Homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Panti, Yaba, Lagos.

Oluropo allegedly used a scissors to stab his father to death. The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Kenneth Nwosu, confirmed the incident, also adding that aside the suspect, the police also had his mother and another of his siblings, Olufunmbi, in detention.

The police spokesperson said that the suspect had been having a running battle with his late father, over his unruly behaviour which the deceased was not happy about.

"The suspect and his late father had a sour relationship, due to his unruly behaviour. The father and the son have not been in good relationship, but on the fateful day of the incident, the suspect and his father engaged each other in a serious argument.

The suspect angrily picked up a scissors and stabbed his father on the neck.

When policemen from Festac Police Station visited the scene of the incident, the man’s body was found lying in a pool of blood."

According to him, the scissors, which was covered with blood, was also recovered.
