The Police in Ondo have arrested a drunk grandfather who allegedly shot his grandson dead with a dane gun under the influence of alcohol.
The 64-year-old grandfather, Gabriel Fasoyin, reportedly shot dead his grandson, Seun Fasoyin, with his dane gun in Ile-Oluji area of Ondo State, according to a report in Vanguard newspaper.
Vanguard also reported that the incident occurred at Agric Settlement in Ile Oluji, on Wednesday while quoting an eyewitness who said the grandson, who was shot at close range, died on the spot.
The source alleged that “he was fond of drinking too much alcohol and always misbehaves in public afterwards. At times, he would drink, become unconscious and urinate on himself. The family members were not happy with his drinking habit and they have made several efforts to change him but all to no avail.
“On that day, he was drunk as usual. So, in order not to embarrass the family again, he was locked up in a room. As Seun, his grandson, was trying to lock the room with a key, the man brought out a dane gun and shot him.”
“I can confirm that the boy was shot by his grandfather, who is already with us. He was shot at close range and died on the spot. We have commenced an investigation on the matter,” the state Police image maker, Femi Joseph, said while confirming that suspect had been arrested and currently in the police custody.
According to him, the suspect would appear in court after the completion of the investigation.
