A teenager simply identified as Olalekan has been arrested in Ilesa in Osun State for allegedly killing his 56-year-old father, Ayodele Adetoyinbo.
The 18 year old suspect, who lived with his deceased father, allegedly confessed committing the crime to the police detectives attached to ‘B’ Division in Ijamo, Ilesa.
According to a police source, the suspect committed the offence on the 13th November, 2013.
The source, who preferred not to be mentioned because he was not authorised to speak on the issue, said that the suspect at 7pm on the fateful day after returning from school was allegedly accused by his father for stealing his six empty 25 litre jerry cans.
In a fit of anger during an argument that ensued between father and son, the suspect was said to have hit the deceased’s head with a concrete cement block, which consequently led to his death.
The deceased’s corpse has since been deposited at the Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa for autopsy.
The state police spokesperson, Mrs. Folasade Odoro, said the suspect would be charged to court for prosecution after the conclusion of police investigation.
