A 27-year-old man identified as Ibrahim Sikiru has been arrested by the police for killing his biological father, Mumuni Ibrahim in Ogun state.
The arrest is confirmed in a statement released by the spokesperson for the police command, Abimbola Oyeyemi.
The police image maker stated that the suspect was arrested following a complaint lodged at the Onipanu divisional headquarters by a neighbour to the deceased, Abiodun Sunday.
