WHY I DISPATCH MY FATHER IN MOSQUE – MAN CONFESSES


The Bauchi State Ministry of Justice has arraigned a man, Umaru Jauro before the state High Court for allegedly killing his father in a mosque in Maltawa village in the Misau Local Government Area of the state.

The chief state counsel, Hussein Magaji, while arraigning the suspect on Thursday, told the court that the accused went into a mosque and attacked his father with a cutlass on his head and back.

He added that as a result, the victim sustained serious injuries and was rushed to the General Hospital, Misau, where he died the next day.

The accuser’s brother, Ibrahim Muhammadu Jauro, 26, also told the court that the suspect had a problem with them and their late father.

The witnesses told the court that the deceased shared his farm in the village among his children, adding that the accused disappeared for 10 months shortly after that, but suddenly appeared and came into the mosque while they were praying and stabbed their father on his head.

According to Punch, the suspect, a father of three, in his statement to the police, said he killed his father because he separated him and his wife when he travelled out on vacation.

He said: “My father turned my two brothers against me. We are not like we were before our father gave each one of us his farm.

“When I returned home, I took a machete and entered the mosque where my father was praying and stabbed him on his head and back.

“He fell down and I ran away but the youths pursued me and arrested me. They beat me mercilessly and injured my right fingers,” he said.

The presiding judge, Justice Aliyu Usman, asked the suspect if he understood the charges against him. He answered in the affirmative and pleaded not guilty.

Justice Usman then ordered that he be remanded in prison.

The case was then adjourned till August 13, 2018 for hearing.
