POLICE in Kasama have arrested a 28-year-old man of Luyeye village for allegedly axing his 70-year-old father to death after a quarrel.
Northern Province division criminal investigations officer Clipper Mweetwa said in an interview yesterday that Bwalya Sokoni allegedly axed his father Mwamba Sokoni three times in the head on Saturday.
“It is believed that Bwalya started troubling his father to buy him a car after smoking suspected marijuana. In the process Mr Sokoni tried to run away but Bwalya allegedly got hold of him and axed him three times in the head,” he said.
Mr Mweetwa said Mr Sokoni sustained deep cuts in the head and died on the spot.
