And in the
early hours of today Nov. 20th, the man asked his grandmother for the rent
she’d collected from the tenant in the house – N15,000 – and when the
grandmother refused, the two got into a shouting matching and before anyone
could stop him, he picked a cutlass and attacked the old lady. 

When
neighbours got wind of what he’d done, they descended on the boy and nearly
beat him to death. He was later handed over to the division of Ukoro police
station officers, who came and took him away.
