VIDEO: Police nab dad who allegedly kill son over leftover meal

In a disturbing incident that has gained significant attention nationwide, a 70-year-old man identified as Theophilus Udeh has allegedly killed his son for eating the last portion of food in their household.

The incident took place in Umunneochi LGA of Abia State recently.

Confirming the incident in a statement issued on Wednesday, the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Maureen Chinaka, said, “On February 26, 2024, the Divisional Police Headquarters in Isuochi received information that on February 25, 2024, Theophilus Udeh, a 70-year-old male from Eziama Lokpaukwu Umunneochi, shot and killed his son, Sunday Udeh, a 27-year-old male from the same address.

“Upon receiving the information, detectives from the Isuochi Divisional Headquarters visited the crime scene, removed, and deposited the corpse at the mortuary for autopsy. Exhibits were recovered, and the suspect was subsequently arrested.

“The case has been transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation.”

Our correspondent gathered that the elderly Theophilus did not eat his food in the morning and came back home feeling hungry, only to discover that the deceased had returned home earlier and eaten the remaining food.

This, our correspondent learnt, reportedly angered the suspect who dashed into his room, brought out his gun and fired at his son, killing him on the spot.

Theophilus, a source said, was promptly apprehended by members of the community who tied his two hands and placed him on the body of his son at the village square.
