A 23-year-old, John Joshua, arrested by men of Niger State Police Command for stabbing his neighbour to death, said he carried out the act because the deceased disrespected his father.
Speaking with journalists after his arrest, Joshua said: “I killed him because he insulted my father and this is not acceptable to me because I have never insulted his father before and I don’t see any reason why he should disrespect my own father.
“What annoyed me most was that when I confronted the deceased, he did not show any sign of remorse. I stabbed him in his ribs to teach him a lesson, so that in his next life, he will learn to be respectful to elders.”
The state Police Command Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Abubakar, confirmed the incident, adding that the suspect confessed he committed the crime during investigations and that he will soon be charged to court.
