Man, 26, allegedly hacks father to death in Wakenaam
Residents have executed a citizen’s arrest of a 26-year-old man who reportedly admitted to chopping his father to death during an argument on the island of Wakenaam in Region Three on Monday.
A police report noted that the young man will remain in the custody of the residents until the police arrive at the location. Initial reports by the police revealed that the father and son duo left for the backdam but the son returned, claiming of feeling unwell.
When asked about his father, he claimed that he left him in the backdam, however, checks for the father so far have led to the discovery of his pants and a cell phone.
The 26-year-old son then travelled to Troolie Island where villagers further questioned him and he confessed to chopping his father several times and leaving him to die after they had an argument, the police report noted.
This is a developing story.
