Man Shoots Uncle Dead For Advising Him To Stop Drinking Alcohol

A 25-year-old man, Dodo Baraje, has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command for shooting his uncle to death for advising him to stop drinking.

The suspect reportedly shot his 50-year-old uncle identified as Baraje for advising him to stop drinking a local concoction known as “suck and die”.

An argument was said to have occurred between the duo over the matter during which the uncle beat him up.

Enraged by his uncle’s actions, Dodo was said to have run into the house and brought out a gun with which he shot Baraje.

Baraje reportedly raised the suspect from infancy until he got married.

Confessing to the crime, Dodo said, “Out of annoyance, I ran into the house, picked a gun and shot him. I never knew that he would die, he was only correcting me so that I will be a better person in the society, someone my family will be proud of.”

He added, “I don’t know how I am going to explain this to my family, especially to my wife who loved my late uncle so much. In fact, I was under the influence of alcohol; ordinarily, I wouldn’t have killed my uncle who took care of me.

“I had never quarreled with him before, honestly, I don’t know what came over me. May Allah forgive me. I now realised what I have done in my life, I am a fool.”
