A father has cried out after his son, a primary school teacher allegedly beat him and his wife up over land in Delta state.
78-year-old Benson Ekpenisi, from Owan-Nta Aliosimi in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State, said he and his wife have suffered so much in the hands of their fifth son, Patrick Ekpenisi, who teaches at Okundaye Primary School.
According to Benson, the latest attack Patrick launched on he and his wife was over a parcel of land offered for sale by him – Benson.
Mr Benson said his son was angered when he learned that he planned to sell a piece of land to repair the leaking roof of his house and use the rest to take care of their needs.
Speaking to Ika Times newspaper, Pa Benson Ekpenisi said: “The story started many years ago when my son Patrick Ekpenisi who is the fifth among my children had been threatening to kill me and the mother and he had been saying it with the boast that he has political and royal backup.
“On several occasions, he had said that no policeman from Ika North East and Ika South Local Government can arrest him because he will be released by the politicians in Ika federal constituency.”
