19-yr-old man kills son in Plateau

A 19-year-old man in Plateau State has murdered his own son because he did not want to accept him.

The poisonous DD Force insecticide

A 19-year-old man from Mbar village in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau State, Balang Ishaya Mafwahai, has been arrested for allegedly killing his four-year-old son after the mother of the child, Gloria, left him to watch over the kid while she did some household chores, reports the News Agency of Nigeria.

It was gathered that Gloria who got pregnant for the teenager about four years ago and had been living with him and his family, had asked Mafwahai look after the child and while she was away, he was said to have prepared pap for the child named Bwesaf Palony, but allegedly added a poisonous substance and fed the boy with the mixture. After making sure the boy had taken the poisonous substance, Mafwahai left the house to a nearby shop where he waited for his son to take his last breath.

The suspect, according to the State Commissioner of Police, Adekunle Oladunjoye, who paraded him at the Command Headquarters after his arrest by detectives from the Special Crime and Investigative Division (SCID), had used a very powerful substance identified as D.D Force insecticide to kill his own son.

“Ishaya used D.D Force insecticide to poison his four-year-old child,” Oladunjoye told newsmen.

The suspect however, did not deny committing the crime but insisted that the dead child was not his as he had told his girlfriend that she had planted another man's child on him.

“I had told her from the beginning that it was not my child she was carrying but she insisted and her people brought her to stay with me.

But I did not kill the boy because he is not my child. I can’t tell why I did what I did but I just want the public to know that such a thing will not happen again.”
