A 23-year-old son of a retired Nigerian Army officer, Ibrahim Hassan, has strangulated his 90-year-old father over an ATM card in Kwara State.
The suspect reportedly administered paracetamol injection mixed with other lethal substances on the nonagenarian which left him weak and dizzy before perpetrating the act after he took his father to renew and collect his ATM card from a bank.
Kwara Police Command Spokesperson, Ajayi Okasanmi, said: “Ibrahim later took the father on a motorcycle he borrowed to an isolated uncompleted building and strangled him to death, dug a shallow grave and buried him after dispossessing him of the Wema Bank ATM card they went to the bank to collect.
“He then escaped to Kaduna State and withdrew N59,000. He confessed that he killed his father because of the ATM card since he already knew the pin and also sold the borrowed motorcycle before running to Kaduna.”
The Spokesperson said the ATM card and the stolen motorcycle had been recovered.
