The police in Zimbabwe has arrested a 25-year-old Lonias Jojo who hacked his 72-year-old father to death then dumped the body in a mine shaft.
Reports have it that the suspect killed his father Luke Robert Jojo with the help of his 18-year-old wife, Brenda Dube whom the deceased did not really like.
The deceased is said to have always insisted that his son should divorce his wife.
Midlands Provincial Spokesperson, Inspector Goko confirmed the incident.
“On July 4 around 2 p.m., Brenda came home drunk and had a misunderstanding with Luke who then instructed his son, Lonias to chase his wife away because he did not like her. This angered Lonias who took an axe from his bedroom and struck his father twice on the head. Luke died on the spot,” he said.
Insp. Goko said; “Lonias and his wife Brenda allegedly ferried the deceased’s body in a wheelbarrow and threw it in a disused mine shaft about 400 meters away from their home,” he said.
