Police begin inquest into killing of 79-year-old man by teenage son



EDO State Police Command says it will rely on the legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), as it continues investigations on the alleged murder of 79 year-old Osariakhi Oronsaye by his 13-year-old son

  The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Kontongs Bello, disclosed this on Monday, in Benin.

  He explained that the minor status of the offender had made it imperative for the command to liaise with the DPP, assuring that no stone would be left upturned in unraveling the motive behind the crime.

  “I can confirm to you that the command is discussing with the DPP over the case. It is an unfortunate case, but we are also conducting our investigation to ensure that we unravel the case.

  “The culprit is a minor, so we must be sure of what we are doing,” Bello said.

It was also gathered that the deceased had reported his son to the Evbuotubu Police Station a week ago, but later pleaded with the police to leave the teen alone.

  The young boy, however, carried out his threat, as he allegedly axed his father to death in his sleep in the early hours of Sunday.
