A 30-year-old man, Chukwukezi Afonogu, has been arrested by the Enugu State Police Command for killing his 65-year-old father, Judge Afonogu with a gun. Afonogu allegedly murdered his father for calling him a ‘mad boy’. The Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu said the incident in Enugu-Inyi, Oji River Local Government Area, Enugu State.

The suspect was said to have been having frequent quarrels with his father. On the fateful day, in the midst of an­other altercation, Afonogu allegedly re­trieved his gun from his room, came out into the family compound and shot his father where he was seated and resting under a tree in the afternoon.

In his statement to the police, Afonogu said “I am an evangelist and member of the Evergreen Believers Bible Ministry. Be­fore this thing happened, I was having several quarrels with my late father. My father called me on that fateful day and asked me about an electri­cian that was supposed to work in our house and he gave me N500. My late father was a difficult person. The incident happened around 3.00pm. My father called me a ‘mad boy’ and a quarrel ensued. I went inside the room and took my hunter’s gun and shot him. I quickly carried him to a nearby bush and buried his corpse because nobody was at home. Imme­diately I buried him, I ran away. My late father had eight children. The first born died and we have six girls and I am the only son.”

The police boss further disclosed that the mother of the suspect, Anthonia Afonogu ran away from home upon hearing that her son had killed his father.
