Several Nigerian blogs and publications claim that Kazeem had been upset with his father for being married to a second bride for more than a year.
Kazeem rushed off after killing his father, according to Isah, a sibling of the deceased, who was speaking to Daily Trust about the incident.
He added that the incident had been brought to the attention of the relevant authorities and that his brother’s remains had been buried in accordance with Islamic customs.
He said, “The boy is a drug addict and is always involved in bad activities. While they were arguing on Wednesday morning, he carried a plank and hit his father who fell on the floor. Immediately Kazeem noticed that he ran away. We rushed my brother to the hospital, but he died afterwards.
