Son Apologizes To Mum For Killing His Dad, Gives Details Of How It All Happened
The 21-year-old Tolani Ajayi, accused of killing
his own father, Charles Ajayi, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), at the Redemption Camp along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway last week has apologised to his mother over the incident.
He said he was provoked by his father, adding that he was ready to face the judgment with the fore knowledge of the consequences of his action.
According to him, “There is no way Nigerians can help me, I am going to face my judgment; I am meant to pay for what I have done. It is not as if I am ready, it is something that is inevitable; something that is going to happen; I am just waiting for it.”
While speaking with journalists yesterday at the Ogun State Police Command headquarters
in Abeokuta, he said: “I have sent some people
to talk to her that I am sorry. I have talked to
my sister, my mother is still grieving, I want to
give her time, it may be spiritual. I have asked
Ajayi who confessed that he had been into drugs, said: “I tried those drugs myself. I might have heard about it from my friends but, I tried it myself.” He however denied that he was under the influence of the drugs, saying that “The action was not planned, the incident happened around 1a.m. when the church would have been sleeping. It was anger that led me into this. My father just bit me repeatedly with his teeth.”
“There was an argument between us and I stood up to him, he beat me with a st!ck and bit me with his teeth. Just the two of us were at home, my mother was in Abuja. My father went to the kitchen and got a st!ck (wooden spoon).
He used it on me repeatedly and I tried to defend myself, then he bit me on my shoulder and I got angry. I used normal small kitchen knife, then, I used cutlass to attack him.
I regret the action.”
