Photos: 27-year-old man stabs father to death for refusing to buy him a motorcycle in Anambra
The Anambra state police command have arrested 27-year-old man, Ifeanyi Oguejiofor, pictured above, for stabbing his father, Osita Oguejiofor, to death for refusing to buy a new motorcycle for him. Ifeanyi, who is a commercial motorcycle rider, also stabbed his mother, Mrs. Josephine Oguejiofor, several times with the same kitchen knife after killing his father, but she survived and was rushed to the hospital. The attack on his father, who was a trailer driver, and his mother, said to be a spiritualist (Ezenwanyi), took place at 8am last Saturday February 3rd. It was also gathered that Ifeanyi, after stabbing his father to death, stabbed his mother and, thinking that she was dead, he stabbed himself in a bid to commit suicide but his mother raised the alarm that attracted neighbours, who saved mother and son. Ifeanyi got angry with his parents when he asked for money to buy a new motorcycle. He went into their kitchen, took the knife he found there and stabbed his father in the neck multiple times until he slumped and died. “His mother was screaming for help when she saw Ifeanyi with a knife but he did not hesitate to stab her in her shoulder and, as she fell on the ground, he thought she was also dead. And in a bid to escape the wrath of the law, he tried to commit suicide by stabbing himself severally in the chest before he was held by the security men.” an eyewitness said Ifeanyi, who is currently in police custody, confessed to the crime. He said: “What I did was what my spirit asked me to do.” Divisional police officer, Ogidi, Mark Ijarafu, who confirmed the incident, said that the remains of Ifeanyi’s father have been deposited at Iyi-Enu Mission Hospital morgue in Ogidi, while the mother was treated in an undisclosed hospital. He said investigations into the matter is ongoing.
