The Nigeria Police have arrested a teenager, Haruna Makau, for allegedly killing his own father in an argument over millet in Fika local government area of Yobe state.
The Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Babagana Zannah Adamu, told Daily Trust yesterday that the suspect ran out of food in his home and asked his father to help him with some millet, which the father refused.
He said the father scolded the son for not doing enough to take good care of his family and promised to buy him millet from the market, but the boy insisted on maize. “The argument heated up and the son hacked the father with machete,” he said.
