The police have arrested a 25-year-old man, Mohammed Buba, for allegedly killing his 52-year-old father in Niger State.
Buba was said to have thrown the body, wrapped in a sack, into the Tagwai Dam.
The police said Buba conspired with his friend, Aliyu Mohammed, to kill his father to inherit his property.
During interrogation at the Police Headquarters in Minna, Buba said he paid Mohammed N110,000 to kill his father.
He said he sold some of his father’s properties to raise the money.
The suspect said Mohammed attacked and stabbed his father to death at his Korokpan, Paikoro Local Government Area home.
Spokesman for the Police Command, Wasiu Abiodun, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said Buba led the police to Tagwai-Dam where the body of the deceased was dumped.
Abiodun said Mohammed was at large.
He said Buba would be arraigned after investigation.
