Residents of Masaka, Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, were on Monday thrown into panic after a man, Badejo Idowu, was stabbed to death by his first son, Tunde Badejo, over claim to a land belonging to the family.

City & Crime learnt that Tunde had been pestering his father for a portion of the land for over a year.

When our reporter visited the scene, the deceased’s wife, Madam Tolani Badejo, said her husband asked Tunde to give him time to apportion the land fairly among other family members.

She explained that, “He had been on my husband’s neck for the land since last year. So during their last argument on Monday, he pulled out a knife and stabbed his father several times on the head, neck, chest, hands and legs which killed him. I raised alarm and he fled.”

The second son of the deceased, Ayomide Badejo, said the matter had been reported to the police while his father’s remains had been deposited in a mortuary.
