Man kills and buries his 70-year-old father inside a shallow grave in Anambra (photos)

A 26-year-old man identified as Chisom Ogum has been apprehended by men of the Anambra state police command for allegedly killing his biological father, Christopher Ogum, 70, and burying him in a shallow grave in the Umuomaku community in Orumba South local government area of the state today September 26.

However, it was reported that Chisom attacked and killed his father with a shovel and then buried him in a shallow grave. The suspect tried to escape afterward before he was arrested and beaten to stupor by a furious mob who equally forced him to exhume the corpse of his father from where he buried it.

Confirming the incident to newsmen, the spokesperson of the state police command, Haruna Mohammed, said police detectives visited the scene of the crime, photographed the victim, and took the corpse to the mortuary for autopsy after it was certified dead by a medical doctor at Umunze general hospital.

Haruna said the offensive weapon used in perpetrating the offence was also recovered as an exhibit.

He further added that the state Commissioner of Police CP John B.Abang has ordered for the case to be transferred to the State CID Awka for discreet investigation.
