WHY I CUT OFF MY 70-YEAR OLD FATHER’S HEAD – CHISOM
A 26-year old man, Chisom Ogum, who attacked his father, Mr. Christopher Ogum,cut off his head and buried him in shallow grave, has finally opened up to the Police in Anambra State.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that incident happened on Saturday in Umuomaku, Orumba South Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that Chisom, who was a motorcycle operator in the community, demanded from his late father to allow him to sell a portion of land but the father declined. His father told him that a portion of land had been sold before and the money given to him but he wasted it.
The response from his father did not go down well with him and he decided to kill him. The suspect, Chisom, then attacked the father with a cutlass, gave him several cuts and he bled to death.
To cover up the crime, he secretly buried him in a shallow grave but still went ahead to inform their neighbours about what he had done after he lost consciousness over the dastardly act.
The Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, who confirmed the incident said the suspect had been arrested.
He said the suspect ran amok in a circumstance yet to be ascertained before he attacked and killed the father.
Mohammed said, “On Saturday, about 6am, Police operatives attached to Umunze Division in collaboration with a local vigilante group arrested one Chisom Ogum( 26 ) of Umuomaku Community in Orumba South LGA of Anambra State”.
“The suspect allegedly ran amok in circumstances yet to be ascertained, attacked and killed his own biological father, one Christopher Ogum ( 70) of the same address with a shovel and buried him in a shallow grave.”
“The suspect attempted to escape before he was apprehended and beaten to stupor by an angry mob, who equally forced him to exhume the corpse of his father from where he buried it.
The PPRO said the Police had deposited corpse of the victim in the morgue for autopsy after it was certified dead by a medical doctor at the Umunze General Hospital.
He said the “offensive weapon” used in perpetrating the offence was recovered as an exhibit , adding that the Commissioner of Police in the state, John Abang, had ordered that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Awka, for discreet investigation.
