Abuja - In an extreme case of hatred for an ex-spouse, 44-year-old Sunday Ibrahim, is alleged to have strangled his 14-year-old son, Musa Ibrahim, to spite his ex-wife, following the dissolution of the couple’s marriage by a court in Abuja.
The abominable act happened in Kabusa village in Apo area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, reports Daily Post.
After killing the son, Ibrahim ran to the house of his uncle, Haruna Isah, who resides at Airport road, Abuja, to confess that he had killed Musa.
Shocked to the marrow, Isah promptly reported the matter at the Ido Police Station; he also arrested Ibrahim and handed him over to the Apo Police Station, from where the case was subsequently transferred to the homicide section of the FCT Criminal Investigation Department of the police command.
When detectives took Ibrahim back to his residence to conduct a search, they discovered the sandals of the deceased teenager in the father’s room.
It was further gathered that Ibrahim had previously attempted to kill his 17-year-old daughter, Maimuna Ibrahim, by serving her poisoned food. Fortunately, her sixth sense saved her and she did not eat the food. Ibrahim was said to have quickly thrown the poisoned food away.
The FCT Commissioner of Police, CP, Mohammed Mustapha, confirmed the incident, saying the court granted the ex-wife custody of the couple’s children
