Babangida Sule, a thirty two year old man living in Maisamari, Nguroje Ward of Sardauna local government area of Taraba has allegedly murdered his father over his refusal to approve his engagement to a lady he intends to marry.
Reports say Sule, who committed the said crime on Wednesday, hacked his father to death with a sharp cutlass and fled the scene of the crime.

Acc0rding to Jauro Dahiru Hammawa, the councilor of the ward, he saw the victim lying in a pool of his blood with his body severely mutilated in several places.
He said, “I got the message that Babangida had butchered his father using a sharp cutlass. When the information got to me, I took a motorcycle and quickly rushed to the scene of the incident, where I saw the deceased lying in a pool of blood. When I removed the cloth covering his face, I saw that it had been cut in places using a sharp cutlass.
“We carried a blanket and folded the body into it. When I asked to know the whereabouts of his son, I was told that he had run away.  I quickly rushed to the police station where I reported the matter and the police and vigilante group conducted a thorough search for the son. They found him hidden in the bushes near a stream and arrested him,” Jauro said.
The body of thee victim was later taken to the Police Divisional Headquarters in Gembu for further interrogation. It was later released to his family for burial while his errant son is still in police custody.
Jauro recalled that in 2012 a misunderstanding had occurred between the young man and his father, causing the man to beat his father mercilessly, almost killing him.
