“The 25-year-old allegedly killed and buried his 56-year-old father, Mallami Aliyu,” he said.

“The boy is in detention though we discovered that he was intoxicated and is not himself at the moment.

“We are waiting for him to regain his consciousness before further investigation,” he said.

Narrating the incident, the pregnant wife of the deceased and mother of the suspect, Malama Fatima Aliyu, explained that the incident happened on Sunday night at about 2 a.m.
