According to Daily Post, the Kwara State Police Command arraigned the suspect after he allegedly threatened to kill his father, Hassan Auta, with a cutlass in the Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State.

The police report confirmed that the defendant’s father reported at a Share police station that his son got home late on the fateful day drunk.
