Why I Butchered My Own Father –Redeemer University Student

The 21-year-old Redeemer’s University undergraduate, Tolani, who killed his father, Charles Ajayi, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, last Thursday, has said his late father provoked him into killing him. Expatiating on how his father allegedly provoked him, the young man said there was an argument between him and his dad.
He said, “My father went to the kitchen and got a stick (wooden spoon) which he used on me repeatedly and I tried to defend myself. Then, he bit me on the shoulder and I got angry. 
“I initially used a normal small kitchen knife. Later, I used cutlass to attack him. I regret the action.”

Tolani murdered his father at Canaanland Street in the Redemption Camp along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. The 300-level student of Department of History and International Relations, spoke with Punc on Tuesday at the Ogun State Police Command Headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta , where he was being detained.

Tolani, who the vice chancellor of RUN said was facing a disciplinary committee in school before he committed the crime, was initially reluctant to open up on what really happened.

He later disclosed that during the incident, only he and his dad were at home, while his mother was in Abuja.

Asked whether his parents lived together as husband and wife, Tolani said, “We lived in Abuja; I schooled in the camp (Redemption Camp). My father came for a programme. My school was on break, so, I went to meet him. We were meant to go back to Abuja together, then the incident happened and here I am.”

Tolani, who said he had offended his mother by his action, added that he had sent some people to beg her on his behalf for forgiveness.

He said, “I know my mother is still grieving and I want to give her time. But I have sent some people to talk to her that I am sorry, and that she should forgive me. I have talked to my sister.”

Asked if he was under the influence of drugs when he committed the crime, Tolani confessed that he had been into drugs, saying “I tried those drugs myself. I might have heard it from my friends, but I tried it myself.

“But I know there is no way Nigerians can help me. I am going to face my judgement. 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.”
