Father kills son over missing palm oil in Kano

One Awaisu Nagyala of the Gwazaye Quarter in the Kumbotso Local Government Area of Kano State has allegedly beaten his 18-year-old son, Abba Awaisu, to death on Tuesday after accusing his son of stealing two gallons of palm oil.

An eyewitness, Kabiru Usman, who said Nagyala earlier locked up and brutalised his son with a club and stick, said some neighbours, who attempted to rescue the boy, were warned by the father to mind their business.

However, the Ward Head of Gwazaye area, Bello Rabi’u, said the brutalised boy, who was in serious pain, was hurriedly rushed to a nearby hospital in a critical condition, where he was pronounced dead.
