Man allegedly beats his 7-year-old son to death in Lagos over piece of fish

One Saviour Aniefok is reportedly on the run after he allegedly beat his seven-year-old son, Nathaniel, to death over a piece fish.

It was gathered that the incident happened at the suspect's residence in the Shangisha area of Magodo Phase 2, Lagos State.

Aniefok allegedly tortured the boy on the allegation that he stole a piece of fish belonging to one of his customers.

According to Punch Aniefok, an artisan, had repaired a faulty microwave oven for a customer, who gave him a piece of fish to test it after repair.

Aniefok reportedly forgot to return the fish while delivering the repaired microwave to the customer so he took it home for preservation.

One of the neighbours told the publication that Saviour was fond of torturing Nathaniel and his brother, Charles.

“I still saw Nathaniel on Sunday afternoon. In fact, I gave him snacks to eat. Around 10pm, we started to hear Nathaniel shouting and crying for help; we also heard loud bangs on the floor and wall indicating that he was being beaten," the neighbour said.

"As he was crying, Saviour was telling him to shut up. I personally thought their stepmother was at home to caution him. But later, we got to know she had travelled. Surprisingly, I heard Nathaniel died the following day.”

Another neighbour said the father facilitated Nathaniel’s burial the following day, adding that he went into hiding and took Charles along to conceal the crimeLatest Post
