“I administered paracetamol injection mixed with other substances to make him weak and dizzy.”
The Suspected Killer made this statement during an investigation by the policemen few hours after the sad incident had occurred.
Immediately after the father became unconscious, the suspect allegedly borrowed a motorcycle and took him to an uncompleted building where he strangled him to death.
The 23-year-old suspect Ibrahim Hassan later buried his 90-year-old father in a shallow grave.
While speaking to journalist, He confessed of his crime, adding that he only did all this to have access to his bank account.
He also withdrew a total sum of N59,000 and absconded to Kaduna state where he was eventually arrested.
However, Police investigation led to the recovery of a stolen motorcycle and his later father’s ATM card.
The spokesperson of the kwara state police command, SP Okansanmi Ajayi called people to always report any suspected criminal to the near by police station.
He said, “On August 5, 2022, one Aishat Ibrahim reported that her 90-year-old father, Sabi Ibrahim, a retired army corporal to the police command, was missing. The circumstances of his disappearance elicited suspicion hence the resolve of the command to get to the root of it.
“Investigation into the matter led to the arrest of one Ibrahim Hassan, a biological son of the missing old man. During investigation, the suspect confessed to having administered paracetamol injection mixed with other substances on his father, who became weak and dizzy immediately after the injection.
“This he did after coming from the bank where he took his father to renew and collect his ATM card. The suspect, thereafter, took the father on a motorcycle he borrowed and conveyed his father to an isolated uncompleted building and strangulated his father.”
In a bid to conceal the crime, Okesanmi said Hassan dug a shallow grave where he buried his father after dispossessing him of the Wema Bank ATM card, adding that he escaped to Kaduna State and started withdrawing from his late father’s account.
“He withdrew a total sum of N59,000. He (Hassan) stated further that the purpose of killing his father was to dispossess him of the ATM card since he already knows the pin. He also sold the borrowed motorcycle and eloped to Kaduna State where he was eventually arrested.”
Okasanmi said that the ATM card and the stolen motorcycle had been recovered by the police, adding that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
